UK visit London on final tour

Eddie Jobson has confirmed the last six shows UK will ever play, including one in London on March 1.

He’ll bring the curtain down at a star-studded event in Tokyo, Japan, on April 1, following a short European tour.

The violinist and keyboardist believes it’s time to “focus on a more creative future” after masterminding the band on and off from 1977 until 1980 then again from 2011. The band for his last tour will feature John Wetton, Alex Macchacek and Virgil Donati.

Details of the Tokyo show are yet to be revealed, although Jobson has promised “very special guests” will take part. Members of his Zealouts’ Lounge will be offered VIP tickets a month ahead of general sale.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
