Grand Hall, Kilmarnock

Doors 7.30pm

Freckfest are delighted to announce that Johnny Marr will be playing in the Grand Hall, Kilmarnock on Thursday 15th October.

Johnny Marr is the anti-rock guitar hero. His instantly recognisable riffs were responsible for creating the sound of The Smiths, one of British music's truly great original bands.

Following their demise, Johnny formed Electronic with New Order's Bernard Sumner and found himself the most-wanted guitar player for hire, adding his unique mark to recordings by Talking Heads, Bryan Ferry and Billy Bragg among many others.

After completing stints as a full time member of both The Cribs and Modest Mouse, he set out on a successful solo career.

With 2 critically-acclaimed albums in as many years and a burgeoning reputation for celebratory live performances liberally peppered with Smiths' material, his stock has never been higher.

Johnny Marr's autumn tour brings him to Kilmarnock for what will be his only west of Scotland date.

Tickets for Johnny Marr go on sale Tuesday 8th September - details to follow.
