Over the weekend, Johnny Marr cancelled his next three tour dates for personal family reasons.
This afternoon, Marr cancelled the remaining dates on his U.S. tour. Respecting his privacy, we simply share his note to his fans:
“I’m really disappointed to not be able to play the shows. The touring has been so enjoyable for me and the band, and the audiences have been great everywhere. If it was about just me being unwell I would’ve found a way to continue, as I did when I broke my hand earlier in the year. But to not be there for one of my family is not right. Thank you to everyone for the kind messages. See you soon. Johnny. x”
Earlier in the fall, Noel Gallagher joined Marr on stage during the encore of his show at the O2 Brixton Academy, covering songs by The Smiths and Iggy Pop together.
The former Oasis star walked on stage to huge applause, picked up his guitar and joined the band in their cover of Iggy Pop's 'Lust For Life'. The band then carried on going straight into The Smiths 'How Soon Is Now?'.

Tickets can be refunded at the point of purchase, and Marr promises to do everything he can to reschedule the dates.
We'll keep you posted as reschedule information becomes available, or you can check his Facebook page for the latest.
