Scottish singer, songwriter and ex-Marillion frontman Fish has announced a handful of UK shows for this year where he will play Marillion’s 1985 chart-topping album Misplaced Childhood in full for the very last time, ahead of releasing his final-ever album later this year.
The Farewell to Childhood tour has six British dates this spring, including Nottingham’s Rock City on April 10.
And we have a pair of tickets to give away for the show.
The tour marks the 30th anniversary of Marillion’s career-defining, multi-platinum selling third album, which spawned the hit singles Kayleigh, Lavender and Heart Of Lothian
Fish said: “I started to consider my future and I came to the decision it was time for a major change in my life.
“A plan was required that fulfilled all my needs and desires and gave me an exit strategy where I could have fun and give the fans of my music a celebration rather than a wake.”
“The first part of the plan begins this year with my last performances of Misplaced Childhood.
“It (the album) holds a lot of memories from a period that was very exciting and crammed with experiences both dark and magical.
“It was not only a breakthrough album for the band but also for me as an artist because I was finally discovering my own individual style as a lyricist and singer.
“To be performing it on its 30th anniversary has a lovely resonance.”
Tickets for his Rock City gig are £25 and available now on 08444 780898 or online at www.thegigcartel.com or www.rock-city.co.uk
