Manchester - the essential Smiths tour' is a guide book
for fans of one of the greatest groups of the 1980s. This guide
takes readers to the places Morrissey wrote about or which formed
an influential part of the group's history, such as concert venues,
meeting places and sites captured on film. Indeed a tour of Smiths
and Morrissey related places, is also a tour of Mancunian history.
The two literally go ‘hand in glove', as you will discover whilst
reading about Manchester's past and the life of the band.
any other band been so inspired by their hometown as much as The
Smiths? It's as if they could never have been formed anywhere else
in the world. The decaying Manchester of the late 1970s and early
80s shaped the band which is why they provided the soundtrack to
so many thousands of lives growing up not only in Manchester, but
throughout the world.
Since then of course Manchester has changed considerably, nonetheless
the Smiths part in that revival is often overlooked. Manchester's
part in the cultural revolution of the late 1980s proceeded The
Smiths starring role in a city which has continued to produce world
class music time after time.
These tours allow dedicated fans to visit the sights and sounds
that inspired Morrissey's writing - however they also offer the
casual tourist a cheap day out at points of interest and history
in the city. We hope to expand this series further over the coming
months and hope you enjoy a taste of Manchester's musical heritage.
