After two recent sold out shows at The Teragram Ballroom, Johnny Marr, British rock icon and former guitarist of The Smiths, returned to LA for a sold out show at downtown’s historic Ace Theatre. Marr is currently in the midst of an expansive US fall tour in support of his latest release Call The Comet. The night’s setlist featured several tracks off the new album such as “The Tracers,” “Hi Hello,” and “”Day In Day Out.” Mixed in-between new songs were several Smiths’ classics like “Big Mouth Strikes Again,” “Getting Away With It,” and “Last Night I Dreamt That Somebody Loved Me.”
The Belle Game, a young Canadian four-piece out of Vancouver, kicked off the night before Marr took the stage.
