Although destined to be forever associated with Eighties indie gods The Smiths, former guitarist with the Mancunian miserablists Johnny Marr has cut a well-defined path of his own through the music industry since parting company from Morrissey in 1987.

Alongside his successful solo career, Marr joined various bands for short stints as well as working extensively as a session musician and adding his distinctive guitar sound to a whole host of other bands' recordings. Releasing his first solo album, The Messenger, in 2013. Currently touring the UK and Ireland, during which he will be recording tracks for a forthcoming live album, Marr brings his live show to Belfast - expect to hear plenty of new songs, back to back with an extensive catalogue of solo material and maybe the odd Smiths number.

Support is provided by Manc alt-rock trio, Man Made, see
