    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.

      Thelma Houston will be special guest on selected US dates (Hollywood Bowl, f.e.) performing "Bobby" (the fantastic new duet) with da band. Recent Morrissey solo material will also be carefully implemented into the set. Nobody said, that it would be easy.

      More chance of Skinny developing a personality than a Smiths reunion happening.

      Yes they are, but not in the direction you think.

      If this happens - and it won't - it'll be something like Morrissey, Gannon, Rourke and A.N. Other on drums. Perhaps with a guest star appearance by Dale Hibbert. Rehearsals will take place in the Salford Lads' Club, and Morrissey will flounce back to LA after the first rehearsal, citing nervous exhaustion and bunions.

      You probably will end up eating your beret, after you spend every penny you have on front row tickets.

      By disastrous solo career, do you mean two albums that have been very well received and very high ticket sales for the tours he has done over the years, plus an appearance at Glastonbury in front of a massive crowd, playing Smiths' songs without butchering them?
