I don't normally get all fanboy when shooting gigs, but this is Johnny Marr and he is playing Panic while I take photos of him! This was the kind of moment when you stop shooting mid song, look around and think, how the hell did I get here?
Johhny Marr covered more Smiths songs throughout the rest of the show which, as a Smiths fan is great, but a little more disappointing was the reaction from certain parts of the crowd (or some of those I was stood near at least) to anything from Marr's solo career. Many spend time between the classics looking at their phones waiting for the next "proper" tune to come along, which they sing word for word, like a drunk uncle at a karaoke bar.
I also met the front row fan who delightfully told me that "I better not fucking ruin my view or else". I never figured out what "or else" meant, but if you read this, I hope I didn't ruin your night and if I did, I hope you like the photos.
