Morrissey’s former guitarist and once principle songwriter, Alain Whyte is set to perform three dates across Ireland before 2023 is out.
However, this December, Whyte is set to tour Ireland with his own material, performing headliners in Cork, Dublin, and Belfast.
Alain's Whyte's shows will feature a set list full of original alternative tunes as well as some co-written/performed by the band with Morrissey during their respective tenures.
Whyte and Morrissey have collaborated on all of the musicians albums between 1992 and 2009, including albums such as Vauxhall and I, You Are the Quarry, and Your Arsenel.
For his first solo Irish tour, Whyte has enlisted the help of one of his fellow Morrissey luminaries; Craig Gannon former guitarist for The Smiths.
Two of the headliners, the Cork and Belfast ones, will feature support from special guest Keeley.
