Australian show(s) in 2023?

Only a rumor right now, but this was posted at Financial Review:

"Companies make up about 60 per cent of Avmin’s clientele, with bands and other travelling acts making up a growing part of the business. Country star Keith Urban’s crew and entourage have tapped the business for his Aussie tour, as have UK sad-music icons The Cure for their upcoming Australian concert."

Johnny Marr says Robert's guitar playing is underrated

 From Music Rader:

"Funnily enough Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker were big touchstones for me in The Smiths at the time. I mean we didn't make that kind of music but I was listening to a lot of that… I've got no problem with that. I like it for what it is, but I just think guitar culture, one of the things that excited me when I was a school leaver was the opportunity to take guitar into the future."

And he sense that kindred spirit in his often unsung post-punk peers too.

"I recognised that in Will Sergeant from Echo & The Bunnymen, and John McGeoch from Magazine. I think Robert Smith doesn't get enough credit for what he does on the guitar – A Forest was a real game-changer, I think."
