    A trusted source has sent the following:

    Concert industry insiders, not authorized to speak publicly, say concert giant “Live Nation” has won the rights for the long-awaited Smiths reunion to happen next year. We know what you’re already singing to yourself (“stop me if you think that you’ve heard this one before”), but because dates and venues are already said to be in the “plotting stage,” this would indicate that a Morrissey-Marr reunion is closer than ever to becoming a reality. There’s no word yet on if all four original members will share the concert stage. Morrissey just completed his “California Son” tour. According to his website, Johnny Marr has no upcoming shows scheduled. Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned.

      As a long time Smiths fan.. God I hope this never happens! Marr needs to stay far far away from the wreck.

      Don't think a 4 date tour would produce enough money, to force down all the humble pie they'd need to swallow.

      Like he’s fiddled with the same boring, slack-ass shite he’s played on every tour for the past 10 years?

      Easy. You can’t see a fucking thing, except shit. Not with your head buried so far up Melvis’ asshole. Keep yapping.

      I doubt it would happen. Morrissey seems very hard work & unlikely to behave himself. It would be good for him though, it might get him away from the alt-right algorithm & more clued up about actual politics.

      i wonder how morrissey's planning to prepare his testicles, maybe in a dutch oven or air fryer?

      "I would rather eat my own testicles than reform The Smiths, and that's saying something for a vegetarian"

      IF a reunion ever happened - & I seriously doubt it will - the only almighty volte-face will be yours when you renounce every vile thing you’ve spouted about Morrissey, the love of your pathetic life, & are fighting to clamber on stage at every gig, in the vain hope that your king might touch you, look at you, sweat on your desperate middle-aged, conflicted face.

      And you & everybody here knows it.

      I doubt very much that Morrissey will be remotely interested in a re-union. And, I don't think Johnny Marr will be interested in re-union either with someone who he has NOTHING in common anymore.

      Does he sell that many records these days? is the money not in touring? I'm sure BMG would see the benefit of a solo artist getting massive exposure through a thing like this.

      The odds. Somewhere between slim and none. What amazes me is why anyone would really want a Smiths reunion. Why? Just so they can complain about the setlist? The genie won't go back into the bottle. If you want a Smiths reunion just play a Smiths record. Leave well enough alone.
      Whenever I hear 'a trusted source' I have to laugh.

      Eh I think I'd prefer an instrumental only version of The Smiths.

      Yes agree. Guess it’s a matter of when the two tours take place. And to take advantage of the reunion publicity I would assume BMG would want him to tour his album right after.
