FISH announces extra UK dates for Farewell Tour in 2025

FISH
PHENOMENAL RESPONSE TO
THE FAREWELL TOUR
 
TWO FURTHER FINAL UK DATES ADDED
TO ‘ROAD TO THE ISLES 2025’

TUES 5th MARCH: Last week FISH announced the UK dates for his final ever tour, and demand for tickets has been phenomenal, replicating the huge sales across Europe where nine further shows needed to be added, to cope with the overwhelming response.
 
As a result of UK tickets also being snapped up within hours, FISH has decided to add TWO more final shows in Scotland, to ensure he opens and closes his farewell tour in his beloved home country. He will now play two nights at the Haddington Corn Exchange, kicking off the UK tour there on 18th February 2025, and closing the tour with a second night at Glasgow O2 Academy on March 10th.
 
FISH comments; “Shortly after announcing the general sale of tickets for the 2025 tour I was taken aback by the reaction and demand, none more so than with the show at the O2 in Glasgow which sold out in less than 48 hours. Glasgow has always been one of the most popular shows on any of my tours but on this ‘Farewell’ tour the demand was amplified and as the nominated last show there were a lot of tickets sold internationally. This meant that a lot of Scottish fans lost out so I felt I should add another show in both Haddington and Glasgow to cater for that demand in my home country.
 
“I had originally wanted to play different setlists in venues across two nights but due to a number of factors this wasn’t possible. However, as we will be performing a rotating setlist across the entire European and British tour I’ll now be able to perform all the songs we will have rehearsed and played on the tour over the two nights in both Haddington and Glasgow. It may not placate people who already bought tickets for the 9th and who wanted to be able to say they were at the ‘final show’ but after weighing it up and taking everything into consideration the promoters and myself agreed to add another show on the 10th to accommodate the demand.
 
“I can assure the fans who bought tickets for the 9th that the two shows will be different and equally emotional as I perform songs for them for the very last time. Ultimately every venue I perform in across Europe and in Britain is my ‘final’ show in that city. After the 10th March in Glasgow there will be no more shows. The 10th is the final gig before I retire and head to “the islands”. 
 
“However I would like to add that I may be finishing touring in this format but in the words of the great Terry Gilliam “I’m not quite dead yet!! ;-)”
 
Bidding a final goodbye to the music industry after four decades of hits, memories and touring, these fifteen celebratory shows across England and Scotland, including a landmark show at London’s Palladium Theatre, will conclude FISH’s extraordinary career as a live performer.

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.
