Fish, the Iconic Scottish singer, songwriter and ex-Marillion frontman has announced new tour dates during April as part of a re-scheduled series of European shows. This follows on for the massive success of the ‘Farewell to Childhood Tour’ in December 2015 which included not one, but two sold out performances at the London Islington Assembly Hall.
The ‘Farewell to Childhood Tour’ took Fish across Europe performing the 1985 charter-topping ‘Misplaced Childhood’ album by Marillion in full for the very last time. Due to unforeseen circumstances however, a select number of shows through Holland and Germany need to be re-scheduled. Rather than make things easy and do on a few dates to make up for those missed, Fish have decided to add further dates giving loving fans that missed out on the December tour the chance to catch one last show.
17 dates have been announced including the re-scheduled dates, with 6 being UK shows with one being a return to the twice sold out London Islington Assembly Hall on April 29th. The final date and performance of ‘Misplaced Childhood’ at the already sold-out venue, The Robin in Bilston, May 1st.
