Fish is soon to begin a twelve date tour of the UK supporting his upcoming, and apparently final album, ‘Weltschmerz’ and today the iconic Scot has divulged some exciting news about the make-up of the tour.

The tour will celebrate key moments in the former Marillion frontman’s career in music, featuring songs from the band’s first studio album, ‘Script For A Jester’s Tear’, while also honouring the 30thanniversary of his critically acclaimed solo album ‘Vigil In A Wilderness Of Mirrors’, which will be performed in full.

Fish will also be playing brand new music from his forthcoming and final album ‘Weltschmerz’due for release this summer.

Fish commented “There’s a powerful alignment of the planets around this tour as I’m releasing my final studio album ‘Weltschmerz’ in July, which is 30 years on from my first solo album, ‘Vigil in a Wilderness of Mirrors’. ‘Vigil’ is scheduled to be released as a remastered project together with ‘Internal Exile’, my second solo album, in October this year.

“As well as those auspicious releases there is a new remaster of ‘Script For A Jester’s Tear’, which was my first ever album with Marillion, due out in April. Taking all of the above into consideration, the set list for the UK tour contains a full performance of the ‘Vigil’ album, five tracks from the new ‘Weltschmerz’ album including the epic ‘Rose of Damascus’ which clocks in at 16 minutes, and a couple of tracks from ‘Script’ as a nod back to my formative past.”
