FISH announces UK dates for Farewell Tour in 2025

FISH, the icon of progressive rock and much acclaimed artist, singer, musician, front man and lyricist extraordinaire recently announced that he will be embarking on his farewell ‘Road To The Isles’ tour across Europe later this year. With many shows instantly selling out, nine new shows have now been added across the EU, and today the UK dates for 2025 have finally been announced.

Bidding a final goodbye to the music industry after four decades of hits, memories and touring, FISH will be playing thirteen celebratory and emotional shows across England and Scotland, starting in Haddington his home of many years and taking in many towns and cities including Aylesbury, where his music career started with Marillion, and a landmark show at London’s Palladium Theatre. The tour finishes in Glasgow with a rousing last-ever show, which will conclude FISH’s extraordinary career as a live performer.

“I’ve been amazed at the response to the tour”, says FISH, “and the sales in the first week in Europe were phenomenal, so much so that dates had to be added to deal with the unprecedented demand. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to take a bow on such a high and with the UK dates going on sale this week and finally closing the circle I’m sure it’s going to be an emotional finale.”

“Nominating a tour as a ‘farewell tour’ has a certain amount of gravitas,” commented FISH on the announcement of the European shows, “and I’m so glad that I have managed to bring together a ‘best of’ line up of musicians from across my live career to come out on the bus with me on my final sortie out on the road. They’re not just highly talented musicians but old friends and co-writers of some of the finest songs I’ve released in the 35 years as a solo artist.

“I don’t want to be sticking to the same setlist every night and there are so many potential songs for the set we all felt that having a moveable feast was the way forward. The setlist will be covering 12 solo albums and of course there will be material from my time with Marillion. There’s a few epics from that time that I’d be remiss if I ignored and to be honest, I’m actually looking forward to revisiting a couple of those tracks. The band members have all played them at one time or another and are all more than capable of delivering fantastic renditions across the board. It’s going to be actually quite exciting revisiting a lot of the material with this historical line-up.”

The ‘Road To The Isles’ tour is inspired by the fact that Fish and his wife Simone are retiring to a croft they have taken over on an island in the Outer Hebrides. They are permanently moving to the Western Isles at the end of this year and Fish is selling the former recording studio and house in Haddington, East Lothian in May after living there since he left Marillion in 1988.

“We have been working on our move for the last year, renovating the croft house and literally preparing the ground for our new home. I’ll still be creating and writing on the island and there’s that elusive autobiography to be written as well as other projects involving music in some shape or another. With the ‘Farewell Tour’ I’m calling a halt to ‘big band’ road work and traversing the globe in the back of a bus and I’m going to be concentrating on growing vegetables and looking after sheep. There’s a great sense of circles being closed with all aspects of the tour and the album releases this year and I’m enjoying the sense of completion that it brings to this current stage in my life as I literally move on to new pastures. It’s a wonderful feeling.”
