FISH: ‘Clutching At Straws’ 30th anniversary tour – extra shows & sold out dates
Scottish singer, songwriter and ex-Marillion frontman FISH will be performing the classic 1987 Marillion album, Clutching At Straws in full for the very last time on a string of headline dates this autumn across the UK. That album cemented Marillion’s reputation as one of the greatest British rock bands of the 80’s, featuring the huge tracks ‘Incommunicado’, ‘Sugar Mice’, ‘White Russian’ and ‘Warm Wet Circles’ and saw them play arenas worldwide
This tour, originally billed as a double-header to include tracks from next year’s forthcoming album Weltschmerz, will now concentrate fully on Clutching At Straws with a string of other well-known tracks from throughout FISH’s long career. The live premiere of songs fromWeltschmerz will instead take place in 2018, ahead of its launch later in the year.
The demand for tickets to experience the final performances of Clutching At Straws means many shows have sold out and new dates, including a third show in London, have been added.
