Johnny Marr played a four-star set in Manchester last December, where NME said: “Countless artists will strut their stuff on this newest of Manchester stages over the coming years – Underworld and Adrianne Lenker are among those booked in – but Johnny Marr has something virtually irreplaceable: the hard-earned respect and undying love of this proudest of music cities.”
Meanwhile, Echo & The Bunnymen are due to go on their ‘Very Best Of’ tour in March this year. The Liverpudlian band will play a selection of songs from their 40-year-long career – get your tickets here.
Finally, Future Islands are gearing up to release their record ‘People Who Aren’t There Anymore’. In October last year, they told NME that their albums “have gone from a place where they were just records we were making to actually now being more like chronicles. It’s the next group of chapters of this longer story.”
