FISH, the former lead singer with hugely popular ‘80s rock band Marillion, has added Shetland to his Scottish tour in September.
Together with long term Marillion guitarist Frank Usher – formerly of The Incredible String Band – and keyboard player Foss Patterson, the singer will perform an acoustic set of his own and the band’s back catalogue.
The Shetland date has been set for 3 September at Lerwick’s Sound Hall, where tickets are limited to 230.
However if demand exceeds supply, promoter Davie Gardner says there remains the option to move to a larger venue.
Fish has only recently returned to performing after recovering from a cyst on his vocal chords, since when the trio have garnered critical acclaim touring Europe and Scandinavia.
Marillion enjoyed top 10 success with singles like ‘Kayleigh’, ‘Lavender’ and ‘Incommunicado’ and played stadiums during the height of their career. Fish went solo in 1988, releasing nine studio albums and regular appearances on TV and the cinema.
Tickets, priced £17.50, will go on sale from Lerwick’s High Level Music on Saturday 4 June from 9am. Tickets will also be available through Ticketmaster on 08444 999 990 and www.ticketmaster.co.uk
