The Smiths Ltd were formed in 2009 and being the ONLY Smiths tribute band from and based in Manchester, they have a unique selling point and an authenticity that is hard to beat. Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right. They use the same guitars, bass, amps and drum kit that The Smiths used on their very last tour to capture that quintessential sound.
With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute. If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.
