Football may not be coming home, but Johnny Marr definitely is.

After a blistering set at Worthy Farm, fans knew there was something stirring in the water

It seemed strange that when Johnny Marr, the godlike guitar genius behind one of Manchester’s biggest bands announced tour dates, without a date even close to his hometown, but this week, Marr put this right, announcing a show at the Albert Hall whilst being interviewed on BBC Breakfast.

It’s strange to see him back on the road so soon, after having not long released his last album, ‘Call The Comet’ and he played Manchester in November of last year. He normally takes a year or two away from it all, but it’s pleasing to know he is hungry for more, as are his fans. Who believe there may be new music coming sooner than most would have expected.

Marr will take to the stage at the Albert Hall on the 4th September, so it’s the perfect way to end Summer and mark the end of a wonderful festival season.

Tickets for this homecoming show went on pre-sale this morning (4th July) with tickets going on general sale this Friday (5th July). It’s going to be special, and with Nile Marr supporting him on his other dates, there is a good chance it will be a family affair once again.
