Johnny Marr Announces Fall Tour, Shares New Video for ‘Walk Into The Sea’

The Smiths’ guitar legend and NME’s “God-Like Genius” award-winner, Johnny Marr, has announced a Fall US tour in support of his forthcoming album Call The Comet. Following a quick and fully sold-out jaunt to Toronto, NYC, LA and San Francisco this summer, Marr and his band will return post-album release for an extensive coast-to-coast run that includes Nashville, Portland, Austin, Boston and Philly, as well as Mexico City and two dates in Canada. Tickets are on-sale at and full list of dates is below.

Johnny Marr has also confirmed an upcoming performance on Conan, to air on TBS, Monday, June 4, and released a new video for “Walk Into The Sea.” Watch here

Recorded with his band in Manchester at Marr’s Crazy Face Studios in Manchester, Call The Comet follows the critically acclaimed UK Top 10 albums The Messenger (2013) and Playland (2014). Says Marr: “Call The Comet is my own magic realism. It’s set in the not-too-distant future and is mostly concerned with the idea of an alternative society. The characters in the songs are searching for a new idealism, although there are some personal songs in there too. It’s something that people like me can relate to.”
