While his old bandmate Morrissey canceled on Twin Cities fans three times before finally calling off his date here, former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr could very well pick up a lot of new admirers on his first-ever U.S. solo tour. For one thing, his second solo album, “The Messenger,” is one electrifying album, showcasing the distinctive guitar work he also brought to The The, Electronic and Modest Mouse as well as Marr’s unsung songwriting abilities. For another, he’s reiterating those abilities on tour by playing a handful of the Smiths’ best-loved songs, for which he shares credit. Alamar opens.
