Reports of a Smiths’ reunion for four UK shows in 2013, and possibly a Glastonbury festival appearance, have been hitting the world wide web hard, without any sign of letting up. Via Holy Moly:
We’ve now heard from several credible sources that The Smiths have agreed to reform in 2013 for four UK shows. And despite such rumours turning out to be total balls in the past, this one has enough weight to it that we’re prepared to call it confirmed, and hang the consequences.
What we learned before we stopped watching The Newsroom was that you have two sources before you run with a news story. And we’ve got more than that, so…
What we’re hearing is…. The Smiths will reform in 2013.
Wow! We never thought we would see it happen and apparently we won’t, according to Johnny Marr, a somewhat important piece of the puzzle. Via NME:
Johnny Marr’s manager, Joe Moss, has flatly denied any truth in the latest Smiths reunion rumours, telling NME: “It isn’t happening. We are fully focused on preparing Johnny’s new album for release and booking shows for 2013.”
Well, there you have it. Sorry, folks!
