Mr. Big Announce “The BIG Finish” 2024 UK Tour Dates

Veteran rock act Mr. Big have announced the spring 2024 UK/EU run of their farewell tour, “The BIG Finish” world tour.

Mr. Big is putting on their signature top hats and old shoes one last time for a worldwide tour, aptly titled “The BIG Finish”. Since the band’s original drummer and co-founder, Pat Torpey, lost his battle with Parkinson’s disease in 2018, the band now feels it’s time to mark the end of this chapter of their legacy.

The tour will see Eric Martin (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitar and vocals), Billy Sheehan (bass and vocals), and Nick D’Virgilio (drums and vocals) perform their 1991 album ‘Lean into It’ in its glorious entirety alongside other anthems from their 35-year back catalogue. A commercial smash upon its release, ‘Lean into It’ spawned the huge hit singles ‘To Be With You’ and ‘Just Take My Heart.’

Commenting on The BIG Finish Tour, Billy Sheehan says: “We wanted to do a proper farewell, and this seems like the right way to do it.”

Paul Gilbert adds: “We’re in the process of making sure we come up with a suitably big entertainment extravaganza to go along with our music. And since our music has resonated so wonderfully in places all over the world, we’re going to play in as many of those places as we can.”

Eric Martin concludes: “If we were in the movie business, we’d just put it all up in lights and say, ‘Welcome to The Big Finish’! Seriously, I’m glad we’re getting a chance to do it all onstage together as Mr. Big again and raise a flag to everything we’ve done as a band over the years.”
