Three members of legendary Manchester band The Smiths appear to be planning something musical, and fans are wondering what it could mean. Fans of legendary Manchester band The Smiths are abuzz - after a massive hint was dropped that a musical reunion with three original bandmates WILL happen this year. The Smiths drummer Mike Joyce posted an image on his Twitter page on Friday night that set social media alight. But the fact there's a date on the image has led to hopes it will mean live dates with the three music men. Rourke and Joyce were original members of the band alongside Morrissey and Marr, while Gannon joined in and became known as the fifth member of the iconic band. The Smiths broke up in , but their music recorded over a five-year period in Manchester made them one of the most influential bands of the decade. Our communication ended, and things went back to how they were and how I expect they always will be.
Andy Rourke, the former bassist with the Smiths, has denied involvement in a partial reunion of the band that is planned for June, leading to a cancellation of the entire project. It was announced on 22 January that Rourke, along with Smiths drummer Mike Joyce and Craig Gannon — who briefly replaced Rourke on bass in , before playing rhythm guitar for a spell — would perform classical versions of Smiths songs with the Manchester Camerata orchestra. Lead singer Morrissey and lead guitarist Johnny Marr are not due to appear at the concerts, and have not released their own statements about them. Joyce then announced he was no longer involved in the project. After much deliberation and soul searching I have decided that without Andy, an integral part of why I agreed to take part in the first place, I have come to this difficult decision.
But are fans getting carried away with notions of The Smiths getting back together? Johnny Marr has sent rumours of The Smiths reunion flying again, after he teased fans with a cryptic message on Twitter today.

He continued: "The parties involved were advised of this on multiple occasions prior to them going to press. Any quotes by Andy Rourke that were attributed in any press materials in regards to the Classically Smiths project were not provided, authorised or otherwise approved by him or his representatives. Manchester Evening News reports that the concerts have now been cancelled.
The Smiths were an English rock band formed in Manchester in Critics have called them one of the most important bands to emerge from the British independent music scene of the s. Based on the songwriting partnership of Morrissey and Marr, the group signed to the independent record label Rough Trade Records , on which they released four studio albums. They have also released several compilations and numerous non-album singles. They won a significant following and remain cult favourites. The band broke up in due to internal tensions and have turned down several offers to reunite. The band's focus on a guitar, bass, and drum sound and their fusion of s rock and post-punk , were a rejection of the then-popular, synthesiser -based dance-pop.
Was it possible? A Smiths reunion in the offing? Albeit one with no mention of Morrissey or lead guitarist Johnny Marr. Come lunchtime, Joyce and Gannon were going to spill the beans. But, of course, this is the Smiths, a group unfamiliar with the concept of plain sailing. Bands live and bands die, but few do it quite as publicly, and Classically Smiths was already set to implode.
