To the surprise of absolutely no one the Classically Smiths orchestral production which was to feature ex-Smiths Mike Joyce, Andy Rourke, and Craig Gannon has been officially canceled.

Not long after Mike Joyce pulled out of Classically Smiths today, production company Bad Production Ltd made the inevitable official and issued their own statement:

"In response to recent comments in the press, the planned Classically Smiths events will now no longer be taking place."

Classically Smiths imploded in a very, shall we say, classically Smiths way. Review the timeline for the shortest and saddest reunion in music history below.


1/19: Mike Joyce teased a project with his ex-Smiths bandmates Andy Rourke and Craig Gannon.

1/22: A press conference was held in the morning to announce Classically Smiths - an orchestral production featuring the ex-Smiths members performing iconic songs backed by the Manchester Camerata Orchestra. Three UK shows were announced with the promise of a fuller UK tour to follow.

1/22: In the late afternoon Andy Rourke issued a statement distancing himself from the project; claimed he never agreed to participate.

1/23: This morning Mike Joyce issued a statement announcing he decided to withdraw from participating in Classically Smiths.

1/23: A short while later, production company Bad Production Ltd axes Classically Smiths

The End.
