Weltschmerz Update!


#1

From Fish’s FB page last night.

First lyric completed yesterday title and inspiration taken from this novel. Board up in control room and entries inked up already. Confidence building as we break our cherries. Moving forward, Uk and European dates announced in next days including new Leamington show . Riding the big wave now. #weltschmerz #uktourdates #writing #lyrics #songwriting


#2

Wonder if Lemmers may be a possible meet-up? Waiting on the dates.


#3

If these dates are this year then its not looking good for me :cry: :cry: :cry:


#4

Failing Lemmers mate, we could always attempt somewhere in Scotland!

Was gutted to miss out on Manchester so determined to get to a few before the chance is gone!


#5

Well, there was me with that new topic and then this brightens the start of the day. :grinning:


#6

Yeah, miserable sod!


#7

The Leamington date would be a bit scarce on tickets I should imagine, with it being re - arranged .
I think you mentioned Cambridge recently , now that would be a good meeting place.
Glasgow is a must, always a great gig and company. :wink:


#8

Forgot about it being the rescheduled one!


#9

I’ll probably be grabbing Leamington tickets when they’re announced thinking unless there are any other Midlands dates , can’t see him playing the Robin this time unless it’s used for the surplus people who can’t get Leamington tickets


#10

I hope the dates aren’t scheduled for September 1st to about 18th. And I hope it won’t be a gig on 19th September.

Fingers crossed!


#11

My birthday :birthday::birthday::birthday:


#12

Why, are the huskies out of action?


#13

1st to 18th September a trip to the USA :wink: !


#14

Scotland.! :smiley: Edinburgh or Glasgow.
And if there is a date in Kirkwall, then maybe I’ll add it.


#15

Errr now there’s a date for Lemmington! Monday 24th September :smile:
Sales open to general public on March 2nd :grinning::grinning:
Would all you guys be likely to go?
I certainly will :blush::blush::blush:

EDINBURGH, LIVERPOOL AND LEAMINGTON SHOWS

"On the 10th December 2017 I played a show at Leamington Assembly Hall. At the time I had a difficult decision to make as severe weather conditions were affecting the area mainly to the east of the venue and travel was in some places treacherous. My band, crew and I had made the difficult journey down from Manchester and had arrived at the hall to set up for the gig. I knew that there would be fans making the effort to get there and rather than cancel the show I made the decision to perform on the night. 600 people braved the elements and turned up for the gig while 400 fans were unable to attend because of the heavy snows. I decided later that night together with the promoter and the venue management that I would return at a later date and perform another show as a goodwill gesture with the 400 non attendees given the opportunity to exchange their unused tickets from December for the new show. "

The Leamington Assembly Hall show is now scheduled for Monday September 24th. There is a deadline of March 1st to contact the promoter to register your unused tickets from the December 2017 show and details on how to contact and gain entry to the September date are supplied below. Once the non attendees from December are registered the remaining 600 tickets will be made available to the general public for sale on March 2nd together with tickets for another 2 shows on September 22nd at Edinburgh Queens Hall and 23rd Liverpool O2 Academy.

These 3 shows are immediately before Fish sets out to start the European tour which will take me through to mid November with further UK shows scheduled in December and announced in the next week.

The set list for the tour will include the entire ‘Clutching at Straws’ album and songs from the new ‘Weltschmerz’ album scheduled for release mid September.

Fish is currently in his studio in Scotland writing with long time collaborator Steve Vantsis and other musicians with recording for ‘Weltschmerz’ planned for the summer. The album will be produced by Calum Malcolm.

Fish is also working on the remasters of his solo catalogue having just released ‘Songs from the Mirror’ and ‘Suits’ the latest in the lavishly packaged series all available on his new website fishmusic.scot where fans can find tour merchandise and other information including up to date news and blogs from this consummate and maverick artist.

Looks like Leamington for me, 600 tickets shouldn’t go that fast fingers crossed , although I’ll see where the December dates will happen before I decide


#19

Leamington sounds like a good option for me. I’d like to do a Scotland date, but they always seem to be later in the year (i.e December) when I have trouble getting the time off from work.

Edinburgh is in September.
