The co-songwriter of the legendary band, who is a City supporter, will perform a live set at Manchester Central to mark the start of the new season.
"Like Manchester, City has always been a club steeped in music," said Marr. "Going right back to Maine Road, there was always a couple of musicians or bands from across the city in the stands. It's the same today at the Etihad.
"City fans just know how to have a good time, so to play to a packed Manchester Central, will not only be a great party to mark the start of this season, but also a special moment for me personally."
