Former guitarist with The Smiths and The The, Johnny Marr has just announced a forthcoming gig in Preston.

Having been absent from the touring scene for a number of years, Marr will visit the city, alongside appearances in York and Leeds, to perform a warm up gig prior to further dates later in the year.

Voted the fourth best guitarist of the last 30 years in a 2010 BBC poll, his first solo album, The Messenger, is due to be released later this month.

Gig and ticket information will be released soon. Follow Johnny on Twitter @Johnny_Marr.
