Johnny Marr will join Dinosaur Jr for a special performance in New York this December.

The guitarist will be one of three special guests joining the proto-grunge icons at their Terminal 5 show. The other two guest performers are to be announced shortly. Dinosaur Jr will play two sets on the night, the first being a full performance to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their 1987 album 'You're Living All Over Me'. A special second set will see the band joined by their guest stars.

Speaking about the New York shows, the band posted a statement online which reads:

On December 1, Dinosaur Jr. will celebrate the 25th anniversary of “You’re Living All Over Me” at Terminal 5 in New York City. The band will play the album in its entirety followed by a second set spanning their catalogue with very special musical guests joining them onstage. We’re excited to announce the first of these special guests: Johnny Marr, known for his work in The Smiths, Modest Mouse & The Cribs. Marr will sit in with Dinosaur Jr. for a song or two, and we’re thrilled he’ll be celebrating with us. More special guests to be announced.



Johnny Marr was recently forced to deny rumours that The Smiths were reforming in 2013, issuing a statement through his manager saying: "It isn't happening. We are fully focussed on preparing Johnny's new album for release and booking shows for 2013."

Johnny Marr and Dinosaur Jr will perform at Terminal 5 in New York on December 1.
