Guitarist Johnny Marr shocked fans of The Cribs at their concert on Saturday (12May12) by appearing on stage with his one-time band.
The former Smiths star worked with The Cribs on their 2009 album Ignore the Ignorant before the quitting the group in 2011.
However, fans of the punk rockers were in for a treat when he joined his ex-bandmates at Manchester, England's Academy venue to perform songs We Share The Same Skies and We Were Aborted - two tracks that featured on Ignore the Ignorant.
He had earlier referenced his former band's gig in a post on his Twitter.com page, which read: "Love and best to all The Cribs fans in my hometown tonight. Manchester Loves The Fellas. Johnny."
Marr quit The Cribs to work on other projects, but has always insisted he left on good terms.
