After Glow: Watch Johnny Marr perform the Smiths’ ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ in Boston

Who Needs Morrissey?

Last night, Johnny Marr brought his Playland tour to Boston’s Paradise Rock Club and treated fans to choice cuts from his latest LP alongside a bevvy of Smiths classics, including “Panic,” “the Headmaster Ritual,” “Bigmouth Strikes Again,” “Still Ill,” and “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out.”

While everyone was caught up in the never-ending majesty of hearing the music of the Smiths in a live setting — and its guitar parts performed by the man who wrote and originally played them — one kind soul, YouTube user ceecoursian, took the time to actually capture “There Is A Light That Never Goes Out” on video. Watch Marr and his band breathe new life into a familiar favorite, and catch up with the guitarist with our Q&A from last week.

Sure it’s not Morrissey up there singing it, but chances are the Mozzer would have just canceled the show before it began.
