Taking it back to the old school

Aaron Wise 5th Apr, 2017

AN EVENING of pure nostalgia is on offer when The Smiths Indeed take to the stage in Worcester.

The acclaimed tribute band will perform at Huntingdon Hall on Friday (April 7), where they promise to play all the greatest hits from one of the most recognised and significant rock bands of the 1980s.

In an intense five years between 1983 and 1987, The Smiths released 20 singles and seven albums, lighting up the world of popular music.

In 2002, NME Magazine named them the most influential band ever. The indie outsiders also managed to conquer the mainstream, with Morrissey’s songwriting and Marr’s guitar playing influencing later Manchester bands The Stone Roses and Oasis.

Made up of die-hard Smiths fans, The Smiths Indeed formed in 2005 and is fronted by a vocalist whose voice has an uncanny similarity to Morrissey.

The band has toured extensively around the UK, the USA and Europe, playing to full capacity audiences of Smiths fans old and new throughout.

For those who weren’t even born then, this is an opportunity to witness just what it might have been like to experience The Smiths live.

The event starts at 8pm and tickets cost £16 for adults and £14.50 for concessions.
