Anthony ArroyoI have only listened to the first cd with the new singer and only know the song Hooks in you.. I am a loyal fan of the original band with Fish and my favorite albums that you can listen to all the way thru are - Script for a jesters tear - Fugazi - Misplaced Childhood- Clutching at Straws. But I have to say the new group has been in the running for quite some time and I salute them.10 hours ago

Marillion were not expecting The Royal Albert Hall show to sell out in days, let alone minutes, so the demand for tickets has taken us totally by surprise.

Having said that, we are not sure we could have done anything to prevent your frustration. We have and will continue to do everything we can to support and serve our fans.

We are well aware that our music is only possible with your faith and we don't take even one of you for granted.

Lucy (our Manager) works tirelessly to address your concerns and where there is any unfairness, we'll bend over backwards to put it right. BUT there wasn't a system available to us which can prevent touts buying tickets and selling them on. For the record, any sky-high prices being charged by touts will not be coming OUR way as these tickets were purchased at normal face value.

It would appear we have become more successful this year. Obviously we are delighted about that but with it, comes a brand new set of problems. We are doing all we can. We can only apologise, but this situation is totally beyond our control.

However - Over 1000 of the tickets at RAH are debenture or member seats. When the member seats are sent out, members can choose to attend, leave their seat empty, or make it available to RAH box office for general sale. We have been clear that we would like as many returns as possible and although we don’t have any control over who returns what/when, we do hope to be able to give you a heads up on when the member tickets are going out.

Thanks again for your support and loyalty – we are all a bit overwhelmed

Mark PalingCan I just add how PROUD I am of Marillion and team. Feels very special that my life long favourite band not only take on a booking at RaH but sell the thing out in minutes! Brilliant. Well done to the whole family x2 days ago   ·  94
Andy MillieGilmour at RAH recently managed it. My mate got good seats. Name on ticket. Passport required and all ticket holders go in together. RAH is a big step up and it really shouldn't have sold out so quickly. Hopefully as one poster says, prices will drop nearer the date. As Marillion are so proud of fanbase, they surely could have managed some sort of presale like the recent Steve R gigs. Hope the band don't play to a half-empty hall. That wouldn't be good.2 days ago   ·  20
Travis LittleMissed out on tickets today but still delighted with the response. Well deserved recognition. Thanks to you all for all the music and memories and for being so human.2 days ago   ·  20
Gary LewisNot the bands fault, but something has to be done to stop these subhumans fleecing both the fans and the bands by bulk buying tickets and then trying to sell them on at stupid prices. At much as people really want to see the band they should not buy inflated price tickets and this would leave the touts with unsold tickets and a loss to them.2 days ago   ·  29
Nigel BlakeFinally the best band on the planet is getting the recognition they deserve! Massive congratulations! Yes I'm gutted I couldn't get tickets, but I'll see you at other venues! Great gig at Kentish Town guys.. but don't go falling off the PA system Steve.. we need you writing and singing! 👍👏2 days ago   ·  13
Ivan SpibeyTickets should have been made available to web members and also a pre sale for real fans. There are hundreds of tickets being touted. I am disgusted. Touts are the only winners here.2 days ago   ·  12
Gem McCarthyGo for it boys, richly deserved. I'm so happy for you all and everyone behind the scenes too. Yeah I may not be there on the big night but I can buy the blu-ray and live it that way. Just promise not to go climbing any balconies or speakers H, RAH is a bit different to Wolverhampton Civic Hall. Proud to be a Marillionite since 1985 and long may it continue!!2 days ago   ·  9
Phil CoombeProud as punch marillion. You work so hard for it. I missed out on tkts today but you are my life and i will be there. Seatwave it will be!2 days ago   ·  8
Glenn PoveyNot that I’m a huge fan, but I did see the recent Aylesbury show and was sufficiently impressed to want to see them at RAH next year. What this whole fiasco demonstrates is an astonishing level of complete and utter naivety on the part of Marillion’s management. Having been fiercely independent for so long they are quite clearly very blinkered to the methods the modern live entertainment industry employs and thrives in the business of ripping fans off. Did they seriously think jumping into bed with Kilimanjaro was a good idea? Forget that touts use online ‘bots’ to swallow huge numbers of tickets up, there is also a very high probability that Kilimanjaro sold directly to secondary ticket agents either because they have shares in that company, or because it guarantees an instant return on their investment, plus a healthy kickback on inflated ‘booking fees’. On the flip side David Gilmour managed quite easily to avoid this at his RAH shows in September by ensuring purchases could only be made from the venue box office, and in order to reduce tout activity that the purchaser must be present on entry and show valid ID. It didn’t completely eliminate the problem but at least this was forcefully backed by the artist management and also the promoter, one Harvey Goldsmith, a fierce campaigner against the profiteering of the secondary ticket market. Despite the fact that many fans will be tempted to purchase through these unscrupulous agents the best policy is not to. Do not support their industry. At least the empty seats may make the management sit up and question this appalling situation which they have every ability to prevent.2 days ago   ·  10
Peter JewellSecond date: how about making tickets available only to fan club members? I would join to get tickets. (Been a fan since before Fugazi released, just not in the club.)2 days ago   ·  6
Jeff ClarkBecame a fan from the moment I heard Hooks in You on TotP's. I've always thought Marillion was underated and considered uncool by the music snobs and trend followers that just saw them as a Kayleigh and Lavender song only band. As H said, put Fuck in the title and suddenly top ten album. I'm proud to tears to see them finally get to play a prestigious venue and sell out nearly as fast as a Gilmour show. Touts excluded it's well deserved and after years of amazing song writing and musicianship, about bastard time. You deserve this. The real fans deserve this and your hardworking representatives deserve this. Congrats guys.... Now, where were we on Ocean Cloud being on the set list? ;)2 days ago   ·  9
Paul SwiftBrilliant achievement to sell it out! How about you re-invent selling direct to fans. I couldn't get a ticket, but would happily pledge face value price of a ticket with others to guarantee a ticket to see if crowd sourcing can sell out more nights at the RAH!? Go on...2 days ago   ·  5
Ian BartlettYou were all awesome at the Forum last night. Thank you and well done on the RAH selling out, regardless of where some of the tickets may have ended up!2 days ago   ·  6
Philip HobbsLet's all remember people like Gilmour Maiden etc expect to sell out massive venues. Lucy Jordache Marillion is but one person.2 days ago   ·  3
Si HarrimanYou will never fix those that whinge for whingings sake however what a tribute to you and your work. Those that have followed you from the beginning already know that Marillion is for life and not just Christmas. Congratulations!2 days ago   ·  13
Paul SmithOnly managed by luck to get a seat on ticket master at no extra cost. Finally get 2 see my favourite band I've listened to since 1990. Can't wait guys and very happy u r enjoying lots of success. Long may it continue2 days ago   ·  1
Tony ByersJust like to add. You guys deserve this success (and more) you've enjoyed this year. We hope it's the start of things to come. You've always been good to the fans and sure you will be in the future. See you all tomorrow night in Utrecht 😀2 days ago   ·  14
Janet PearsonHaven't got tickets for the RAH, but saw you in Leeds last week and will be at the weekend in Leicester at the end of April :-)2 days ago   ·  3
Tony FurmingerI feel proud that the band I've followed since 1981 are in the position to sell out the RAH so quickly. We'll just look forward to the dvd now :-)2 days ago   ·  18
Nigel LyonsThere should have been a pre sale for true fans and possibly a restriction on the number that could be bought per person. Very disappointed. I will miss possibly one of Marillion's top gigs, yet have seen them 50+ times. But you deserve this after all your hard work. Just hope the touts are not the winners here.2 days ago   ·  8
Roy ChapmanLast two times I have been to the RAH the main buyer has had to produce is. Tickets bought from touts are worthless - unless you share their name!2 days ago   ·  1
Mark EverittLots of people whinging on here! Just be pleased for the band! The Marillion family have no divine right to tickets as its RAH's call. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose and life isn't fair! Hopefully Marillion will have a load of new fans attending that haven't yet realised how magical this band is! (Maybe even some of the debenture holders)! As much as some people on here want Marillion to be exclusive to themselves, surely spreading the word to a new audience can only be a great thing for the finances, recognition and future of the band?2 days ago   ·  7
Paul LakinTicketless is the way to go, maiden next year are using this method, the credit card used to buy the ticket needs to be shown and is affectivley your ticket along with proof of id.2 days ago   ·  13
Phil MurtonI was obviously incredibly lucky at midday, although I was pretty determined, with 5 ticket websites up and running and refreshing them every few moments...let's not belittle the real and incredible demand, recognition for Marillion, a band that only we the faithful have recognised for their brilliance for decades, it was only going to be a matter of time before more people saw the light...sad for those who missed out today, but aren't Marillion just brilliant wherever you see them perform? This is not the band's fault, nor should they feel the need to apologise. Thanks to the band for the magic you create in your music, every time...you just never disappoint...I'm overwhelmed every time i listen to you or watch you perform...2 days ago   ·  6
Alan KilbyNice comments guys. Well done. Very few bands care for their fans as much as you do and clearly the behaviour of touts is out of your control. The fantastic demand for tickets though is terrific reward for the hard work and fabulous music from the band and everyone involved with Marillion - congratulations. Guess you need to arrange another date at the Albert Hall then! 😃👍🎵2 days ago   ·  6

Ed FreemanThe touts were selling as well as buying last night so I'm assuming they'll have made a bit of a loss here and there. Hope so anyway. As for Viagogo and so forth, the only solution is to just boycott those f**cking sites. Use something like Twickets instead.2 days ago   ·  1

Joey NewsomeThe tout problem was evident last night; it's been years since I've seen that level of activity. Was approached at least eight or nine times. Clearly something must be done, and now the RAH gig is affected. Gross, and extremely unfair on fans.2 days ago   ·  4

Jon LittleMy sister had a nightmare getting my Kraftwerk ticket as I was at work. She was on 3 sites at once at 12:00. The venue (Gateshead Sage) was a Jon starter. She eventually got it on Ticketmaster, but photo ID is required. This means she has to accompany me to the venue on the night with ID and give me the ticket in front of a staff member. Whereas I applaud tackling the touting problem, photo ID is not a practical solution if someone has bought a ticket on your behalf.2 days ago
Alison WatsonReally upset I didn't manage to get tickets. If I loose out to another fan who was quicker of the mark then that's ok but to loose out to mass buying and these companies then selling at inflated prices is a bit too much to take as I would never pay above face value for a ticket for any concert even my beloved Marillion. Hope those who got tickets have the time of their life it will be amazing x2 days ago
