Mike Joyce, Andy Rourke, and Craig Gannon Announce "Classically Smiths" Concerts

Classically The Smiths image all dates

On Friday of last week, former Smiths drummer Mike Joyce posted an image on his official Facebook page with his name next to bassist Andy Rourke and second guitarist Craig Gannon, along with the words "Summer 2018".

However, Rourke stands against this idea of having any involvement in the Classical Smiths series.

The three Classically Smiths concerts planned for June and July have been canceled as a result of a dispute that arose around their announcement.

Backed up by his team, representatives for Rourke likewise stood by his position of there being no time Andy Rourke agreeing to participate in this project.

"Film critic Taran Adarsh tweeted, "#SecretSuperstar continues its dominance with an EXTRAORDINARY Day 2 [Sat] in China... Although Aamir has an extended special appearance in #SecretSuperstar, Aamir's star pull is at the peak in China...

Now Joyce, 54, has revealed he knew the guitarist did not want to be involved, but he went ahead with a press launch after being ordered not to talk about the musician who was said to be "in the States".

"I am deeply saddened that during the week of the death of my dear friend Dolores O'Riodan, that false statements are made on my behalf". A press conference and press release were scheduled and serviced to the media without Andy Rourke's or his team's knowledge or approval. A representative added that quotes attributed to him "were not provided, authorized or otherwise approved" by him. "I'm really proud of the band's work, and being able to present those songs again in this particular production format promises to be a real gift for audiences everywhere".

"There'll be Smiths classics in the set, but I can't wait to play the songs that have never been heard live before", Joyce told the Manchester Evening News. "With the addition of an orchestra, it will sound as totally unique as it will vast", he said.

But it wasn't long before Rourke rubbished claims that he was taking part in the "Classically Smiths" tour later this year.
