PJ Harvey, meanwhile, was joined on stage last night in Manchester by Smiths legend Johnny Marr.

The singer-songwriter was performing the second of two consecutive gigs at the city’s Albert Hall as part of her current UK and European headline tour. After playing her latest album ‘Inside The Old Year Dying’ in full, Harvey treated the audience to a second set of songs.

“I’d like to welcome a very special guest to the stage – please welcome Johnny Marr,” the artist said ahead of a collaborative rendition of ‘The Desperate Kingdom of Love’. The former Smiths guitarist later returned for the encore tracks ‘C’mon Billy’ and ‘White Chalk’.

In a five star review of the show, NME said: “The capacity audience watch on in an awed silence: it’s just one of many such pinch-yourself moments in a gig that reminds us just why Harvey is such a beloved and adored cultural titan.”
