Showcasing songs from his career, from The Smiths debut thru to his latest solo release Call The Comet, released earlier this year.  But it was the tracks by The Smiths that got the loudest cheers of the evening, and there were a few throughout the setlist, plus a couple from Electronic, a band he fronted alongside Bernard Summer from New Order and Neil Tennant from The Pet Shop Boys.  

Starting the evening with The Tracers from the new album, it was quickly followed by the first Smiths cover of the night, Bigmouth Strikes Again, which near lifted the roof from the ballroom.  A magnificent version of the classic track.

The setlist included other gems from Marr’s back catalog including The Headmaster Rituals, Last night I Dreamt Somebody Loved Me, Electronic’s excellent Getting Away With It alongside new tracks such as Hi Hello and new single Spiral Cities.
