Johnny Marr’s USA Comet Tour 2019 arrives in Chicago for a show at The Vic Theater next Monday, May 13. Marr first attracted world-wide attention for his distinctive guitar playing for The Smiths in Manchester, UK back in the early 1980s. He went on to perform with Modest Mouse, The Pretenders, and The Cribs. He’s excelled as a solo artist too, releasing his third impressive effort, Call The Comet in 2018.
