    The Smiths without Morrissey ain’t The Smiths.

    Smiths without Morrissey = Beatles without Lennon. Stones without Jagger. Queen without Mercury.

  • DrummerMan says:

    Who on earth are The Smiths????

    I cant believe this is being reported or happening at all.
    The Smiths, for those feigning ignorance, are one of the most important bands of the modern times.
    To stage a concert announcing their participation/reunion without Johnny Marr and Morrissey is ridiculous. The Beatles without Lennon and McCartney, The Stones without Jagger and Richards, Gilbert and Sullivan without Gilbert and Sullivan, Cosi fan tutte without De Ponte or Mozart…Get the picture?
