Johnny Marr‘s immediate live plans are uncertain after the guitarist suffered a broken hand whilst out running.

“I was running pretty fast and just went straight over,” Marr has explained to NME. “I banged my shoulder and then realised my hand was in a bad way. Obviously we’re hoping there’s no long term damage.”

Marr, who is still touring off the back of his debut solo album ‘The Messenger‘ and aims to have a second out later this year, still hopes to fulfill his UK and South American commitments, but has admitted there are no guarantees at this stage.

“The plan is to do the Leeds Brudenell shows on March 24 and 25 and then the dates I have in South America as long as I can play the guitar when the plaster comes off,” he continued. “Usually that would be after six weeks but I’m hoping it will be OK, it’s a bit up in the air at this point. I may have to start drinking heavily.”
