Scots rocker Fish is to play a benefit concert for a historic East Lothian Masonic temple, which was left with £100,000 worth of damage when lead worth just £50 was stolen from the roof earlier this month.
The former Marillion singer hopes to raise £2000 from the sell-out gig at Dalkeith Kilwinning No.10 Masonic Lodge, on August 4.
The thieves ripped the lead slates from the roof of the building which dates back to 1766. The repairs will cost around £100,000 due to the age and construction of the building.
Fish, whose real name is Derek Dick, grew up in Dalkeith and joined the Masonic lodge as a teenager. The singer, who now lives in nearby Haddington, had pencilled in a date at his old haunt as part of the upcoming Fishheads Club Tour but said he was horrified to learn it had been ravaged by thieves.
He said: "I've been a Mason since I was 18 and my family's been in the Number 10 Lodge for around 110 years.
"To start the tour there is great because of my soulful relationship with Dalkeith, that being my hometown.
"Dalkeith is also my hometown and the lodge is an important part of the community.
"I can remember going to Christmas parties in the hall and my sister's 21st birthday was held there so it would be great to see the place again and give something back.
"There's high irony about this because I had agreed to play the lodge months ago when I knew they were seeking funds to fix the roof, but the day they told me it was a sell-out I heard about the lead theft."
2011 sees the 30th anniversary of Fish's career as a singer, having joined Marillion on 1981. He left the band in 1988 and has since enjoyed a successful solo career that has seen the release of 13 albums.
His Scottish tour follows dates in Europe with long-term musical collaborators Frank Usher on guitar and Foss Paterson on keyboards, presenting acoustic versions of his sings to intimate venues.
As well as classic Marillion, the singer aims to unveil tracks from his forthcoming studio album A Feast of Consequences.
The singer plays dates in Glasgow, Stirling, Arran, Oban, Dunoon, Tobermory, Perth and Edinburgh, as well as shows in Inverness, Stornoway and Thuirso.
