For more than twenty years, THE SMYTHS have brought the music of The Smiths back to life in the live arena across more than 900 shows in the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand as well as countless festivals including Glastonbury, The Isle of Wight and Bestival.
Acclaimed by Johnny Marr (on Radio 6) and Stephen Street (Smiths Producer), The Smyths focus on the live experience of a Smiths show, imagining what The Smiths would sound like today after more than 40 years of playing the songs to several generations of fans; from the teens of then who are grandparents now, to their children and onto to the teens of today. The music of The Smiths remains as fresh and important as it did at the time of its inception.
The Smyths re-define what a tribute is, caring less about the silly props choosing to focus on the experiential, the fevered rush of a brilliant band playing the songs of a generation that reverberates and resonates today.
