Are The Smiths reuniting?



Thesmiths If it's all about the money and the whole time-heals-all-sounds mumbo-jumbo, it looks like The Smiths will reunite with Morrissey for a one-off show in Coachella next April.

The Sun in the UK reports that Morrissey's new manager, Irving Azoff, is getting his client to rethink the band's massively disastrous implosion in 1987.

"Any deal would mark a remarkable turnaround. Veg-loving frontman Morrissey has repeatedly vowed to never again share a stage with his former bandmates," The Sun says. "A source revealed, however: 'It has looked impossible in the past but suddenly it all looks like it could happen. The buzz around the people who used to work for the band is they could play Coachella for a ludicrous amount of money. It’s closer than it ever has been.' "
