A quick rundown of some upcoming tour news that has come our way. Start blocking out those 2018 dates…
Omnium Gatherum / Skálmöld
Funnily enough, I was thinking earlier today about the last time Skálmöld hit Glasgow and that they really ought to get back to town… and then James put these dates on his timeline! A co-headliner with the excellent Omnium Gatherum and support from Stamina. Consider us there!

- 30.04.2018 UK – Glasgow, Audio
- 01.05.2018 UK – Nottingham, Rescue Rooms
There’s no stopping them, though it still doesn’t look like Seb will be rejoining the ranks. Still, with most of that classic line-up and a superb back catalogue (including some moderately recent material that’s pretty damn good), Skid Row are hitting the UK in March 2018.
Support comes in the shape of Toseland and Norfolk rock’n’rollers Bad Touch, with Night Ranger also added to the bill in London.

Ramblin’ Man – Prog in the Park Stage
Fish (Headliner) – One of the most iconic front men in progressive music of the past 40 years, Fish’s theatrical live performances were major factors in Marillion’s spectacular rise. Fish comes to the Ramblin’ Man Fair with a set full of classics, including a host of material from the critically acclaimed Clutching at Straws record (his last studio album with Marillion).
Mostly Autumn – Since their formation in 1995 Mostly Autumn have carved out one of the most impressive careers in progressive rock in the past 20 years. With albums such as the beautifully constructed The Last Bright Light to the powerful Storms Over Still Water and most recently Sight of the Day, Mostly Autumn are definitely an act any self respecting fan of the genre will not wish to miss at next year’s festival.
Von Hertzen Brothers – The chart topping Finnish trio bring their impressive and critically acclaimed live show to Ramblin’ Man Fair next year. Formed in 2001 the Grammy Award winning Brothers have established themselves as one of the most exciting progressive rock acts of recent years, showcased perfectly with the stirring latest album War is Over, which was released in early 2017.
These acts join the previously announced Steve Earle & The Dukes (playing a UK Exclusive set ‘Copperhead Road plus Hits!’ on the Outlaw Country Stage as headliner), Halestorm (Main Stage, Special Guests), Blackberry Smoke (Main Stage) and Sons Of Apollo (Main Stage).
