Recently, Marr performed a collection of solo and Smiths classics with a 30 piece orchestra during a Manchester homecoming show.

In a four star review of the show, NME said: “Songs from Marr’s four solo albums over the last decade dominate the set, but inevitably it is the choice cuts from the past that rouse the crowd most effectively.”

He was also recently joined by The Charlatans‘ Tim Burgess for a cover of Electronic‘s ‘Getting Away With It’ at Halifax’s Piece Hall.

The performance was the latest in a series of recent on-stage collaborations with Marr previously joined onstage by Gaz Coombes to perform The Smiths‘ classic ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ at Lakefest 2023.

Marr also recently released ‘Spirit Power’,  his first best of collection as a solo artist.

It was also announced that The Charlatans will be opening for New Order at a major show at Cardiff Bay on August 22, 2024. Find tickets here.

In September, Burgess announced that Tim’s Twitter Listening Party was to come to an end after three years.
