  FISH 'CLUTCHING AT STRAWS' 30TH ANNIVERSARY REVISED TOUR DATES ARE HERE
17th November 2017



fish

Former 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 across the UK this autumn.

That album features the huge tracks 'Incommunicado', 'Sugar Mice', 'White Russian' and 'Warm Wet Circles' and saw Marillion play arenas worldwide.

This tour was originally billed as a double-header to include tracks from next year's forthcoming album 'Weltschmerz', but 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 from 'Weltschmerz' 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 new dates, including a third show in London, have been added. The dates are now:

Friday 8th December: Leeds, University
Saturday 9th December: Manchester, O2 Ritz
Sunday 10th December: Leamington, Assembly
Tuesday 12th December: Cardiff, Tramshed
Wednesday 13th December: Bristol, O2 Academy
Friday 15th December: London, Islington Assembly Rooms
Saturday 16th December: London, Islington Assembly Rooms
Sunday 17th December: London, Islington Assembly Rooms
Tuesday 19th December: Cambridge, Corn Exchange
Wednesday 20th December: Newcastle, Wylam Brewery
Thursday 21st December: Glasgow O2 ABC

Tickets are on sale right here.

Also, the classic 1994 album 'Suits' and 1993s 'Songs From The Mirror' are being remastered and will be available to purchase shortly. Both releases come in a 3-disc package with 'Songs From The Mirror' including a DVD documentary with rare live footage.

The releases will have hardback covers with over 12,000 words of sleeve notes plus artwork and photos compiled by Mark Wilkinson.

Fish will also be releasing a new range of merchandise for the December tour, which will be available, alongside the remastered albums in the coming weeks on his brand new website - fishmusic.scot – which will be unveiled soon.

WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

Wacken Winter Nights is something not to be missed and you can check out the amazing ticket and accommodation prices right here.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.

MetalTalk recently sat down with Wacken founder and owner Thomas Jensen and that interview will be online next week and it's a fascinating insight into how Wacken originated from nothing to become the world's premiere Heavy Metal event.
