Johnny Marr Tickets
Johnny Marr TicketsJohnny Marr is a rock musician from Manchester, England. Though he first rose to prominence as the lead guitarist and co-singer (along with fellow Brit Morrissey) for The Smiths in the early '80s, he went on to perform with a number of different bands after that partnership ended in 1987. Marr has enjoyed a successful solo career since 2013 with the release of his first album, The Messenger. In 2010, a poll conducted by the BBC hailed Marr as the fourth-best guitarist of the past three decades, and his musicianship will be on prominent display during his live performances.
"The Boy With The Thorn In His Side"Born in 1963 to Irish parents who emigrated to England, Johnny Marr (born John Martin Maher) initially aspired to be a professional soccer player but became passionate about music when he fell in with a group of young guitarists at the age of 13. He met Steven Morrissey in 1982, and the duo went on to form The Smiths later that same year. Though tensions between the two caused the band to split just five years later, it achieved worldwide recognition thanks to hits like "Meat Is Murder," "This Charming Man" and "The Boy With The Thorn In His Side." Marr would go on to collaborate with several other artists, including Beck and the Talking Heads. He likens his own style on the guitar to "pop guitarist crossed with the mad professor," forgoing long solos and chord changes in favor of complicated arpeggios. Musicians such as Noel Gallagher of Oasis have listed Marr as an influence, stating that no other guitarist sounds quite like him.
