Marr began his tour supporting Brandon Flowers and co. at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver, Canada on Friday night (August 19) before playing the following night at the Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle. At both shows, he joined them for a number of songs in the encore.

Brandon Flowers revealed to NME last month that the band have been working on their next album, with material set to be released later this year.

“We just had a few days off and Stuart [Price, producer] came and visited us on the road,” he told NME. “We’re sending things back and forth, and ideas. I’m talking with Shawn Everett [producer] too, and it’s nice to have that combo.”

He added: “You will hear singles this year. The full record will probably be early next year, but there will definitely be more releases this year.”
