Carpark will play their biggest show when they head to London in April.

The band said: “This will be our biggest headline show ever – Moth Club is such an iconic venue. They’ve had some legendary nights including surprise sets from Dave Grohl and Lady Gaga, which is insane.  We want to create a really special show for our fans that pushes us out of our comfort zone, and Moth Club will give us the space to do that.”

Gen and the Degenerates will be on tour in the UK in May!

“We are enjoying our time in the US, making new friends, but we’re also thrilled to return to the UK to perform for our long-time fans. I hope everyone has been revising the album lyrics so we can scream them together every night! As it’s our headline tour, we’ll bring all the usual chaos on the road with us and some extra special silliness.

“It’s been a while since we’ve headlined, and we’re excited to perform all the new material live. Remember to bring sunglasses for post-cool! If you haven’t been to our show before and don’t understand, just bring some sunglasses, and you’ll find out. “

FISH has announced more UK shows for the final tour in 2025!

FISH comments; “Shortly after announcing the general sale of tickets for the 2025 tour I was taken aback by the reaction and demand, none more so than with the show at the O2 in Glasgow which sold out in less than 48 hours. Glasgow has always been one of the most popular shows on any of my tours but on this ‘Farewell’ tour the demand was amplified and as the nominated last show there were a lot of tickets sold internationally. This meant that a lot of Scottish fans lost out so I felt I should add another show in both Haddington and Glasgow to cater for that demand in my home country.

“I had originally wanted to play different setlists in venues across two nights but due to a number of factors this wasn’t possible. However, as we will be performing a rotating setlist across the entire European and British tour I’ll now be able to perform all the songs we will have rehearsed and played on the tour over the two nights in both Haddington and Glasgow. It may not placate people who already bought tickets for the 9th and who wanted to be able to say they were at the ‘final show’ but after weighing it up and taking everything into consideration the promoters and myself agreed to add another show on the 10th to accommodate the demand.

“I can assure the fans who bought tickets for the 9th that the two shows will be different and equally emotional as I perform songs for them for the very last time. Ultimately every venue I perform in across Europe and in Britain is my ‘final’ show in that city. After the 10th March in Glasgow there will be no more shows. The 10th is the final gig before I retire and head to “the islands”. 

“However I would like to add that I may be finishing touring in this format but in the words of the great Terry Gilliam “I’m not quite dead yet!! ;-)”
