Fish has announced UK and European tour dates, with a warning that those are the only shows it’s going to be economically and logistically viable to play. Two weeks in the UK in the second half of May, and eight weeks across continental Europe in September and October.
No official word yet on the lineup of the band, although I’m assuming he’ll still be having Gavin Griffiths on drums. Fish is not going to be touring for a solid 18 months on the road as we saw for the “13th Star” tour in 2007/8, so I’m hoping that means Gavin is still going to be available for live appearances with both Panic Room and Mostly Autumn over the course of the year. Panic Room have a couple of dates in Belgium and Holland in mid-April, and have promised a UK tour in June.
As for Fish, he’s well worth seeing live. Last year he did a handful of dates co-headlining with Glenn Hughes. On the night I saw them, he blew Hughes off stage.
