Johnny Marr Announces Global Livestream Event, ‘Live At The Crazy Face Factory’
In an exclusive global livestream event, Johnny Marr presents Live At The Crazy Face Factory. The intimate livestream event will see the former Smiths guitarist discuss his creative process, life in song writing, and a set of full-band live performances with music from across his prolific career. Premiering globally on Wednesday 10 November and available on-demand until Sunday, 14 November. Watch a new video trailer below.
Specially curated by Johnny Marr, the livestream event will give fans the chance to step inside the Crazy Face Factory – a unique and personal space that serves as Marr’s de-facto HQ, custom-built studio, rehearsal space, creative hub, and where his forthcoming double album Fever Dreams Pts 1-4 was created.
Speaking about the Crazy Face Factory, Johnny said: “The Crazy Face Factory is more than a workplace, it’s where I chase my ideas, dreams of music, imagination and plans. Industrial and industrious. I spend days on end there, nights there alone. It’s Call The Comet, Armatopia… where I live Fever Dreams.”
All fans who order tickets will be entered into a special prize draw for the chance to win a Fender Johnny Marr Jaguar Signature Model guitar in Olympic white. As distinctive as the instantly identifiable sounds Johnny wrings from it, the Olympic white is the original classic version of this award winning instrument.

Premiere # 1 – 8pm AEDT / 9am GMT. Premiere # 2 – 8pm GMT / 9pm CET. Premiere # 3 – 8pm EST / 5pm PST. Premiere # 4 – 11pm EST / 8pm PST
