Rumours that The Smiths were likely to reform for next year’s Coachella Festival have been quashed by sources close to the band.
A story in The Sun newspaper on Friday (October 24) claimed that the four original members were close to signing a deal to perform at the US festival.

However, Uncut has been has been informed by a reliable source close to the band that the speculation “is rubbish”.
