The Charlatans and Johnny Marr have announced an outdoor co-headline show for this summer – find all the details below.

The two acts are due to perform at The Piece Hall in Halifax, West Yorkshire on Saturday, August 26.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am GMT this Friday (March 17) – you’ll be able to buy yours here. Alternatively, Piece Hall members can access a pre-sale from the same time today (March 14).

In a statement, Charlatans frontman Tim Burgess said: “Yorkshire crowds have always been among our warmest and loudest supporters and we cannot wait to play for them again alongside our good friend Johnny Marr.”

Marr added: “I’ve played some truly memorable gigs in Yorkshire and I can’t wait for another unforgettable night in Halifax on August 26. The Piece Hall is a stunning venue and I’m sure this is going to be a real highlight of the summer.”

Marr released his fourth and most recent studio album, ‘Fever Dreams Pts 1-4’, last February. The Charlatans’ latest full-length effort, ‘Different Days’ (which featured Marr), came out back in 2017.

This summer will also see Burgess and co make appearances at Y Not and Victorious Festival. Marr’s 2023 live schedule, meanwhile, includes a support slot with The Killers in Edinburgh, and a set at South Facing Festival in London.

Last December, the former Smiths guitarist revealed that he’d written a new song for Blondie’s next album. He previously penned the track ‘My Monster’ on Debbie Harry and co’s 2017 LP ‘Pollinator’.

The Charlatans recently wrapped up a North American co-headline tour with Ride.

Burgess released his fifth solo album, ‘Typical Music’, in September 2022. In an interview with NME at the time, the singer explained: “I’ve always thought I had a ‘White Album’ [The Beatles] in me!

“I’ve always wanted to do [a double album]. I thought I could do one on the last one [2020’s ‘I Love The New Sky’], but just run out of time – not songs, I ran out of time. And with this one, I wanted to just give everything that I had, and that was 22 songs.”
