10th October 2018 - Marillion With Friends From The Orchestra 2019 Tour
We are pleased to announce that we will return to the road in the UK and Europe next year.
The shows will feature the "In Praise of Folly" String Quartet plus Sam Morris on French Horn and Emma Halnan on Flute.
In October 2017, we played a sold out show at The Royal Albert Hall with this same ensemble, which fans and critics alike hailed as "one of the best concerts in Marillion’s history".
This concert has since been released on DVD, Blu-Ray, CD and Vinyl and topped the charts in 5 countries.
Marillion will be playing songs spanning their 14 album-career with Steve Hogarth, as 2019 celebrates 30 years of him joining the band.
h: “Has it really been 30 years?! Steve R tells me it’s his 40th anniversary so it’s a double celebration! It’s amazing to be in this position after all this time. We’ve added this wonderful six-piece to the band for this entire tour. They’re brilliant players, good friends, and the chemistry we have together has already spoken for itself. I thought we’d never beat that night at RAH... but there’s going to be two nights and two different RAH set lists this time, so let’s see what we, and our legendary fans can do."
We are still finalising the European dates which we will announce later this year but the full UK dates are as follows:
Friday 1st November - Liverpool Philharmonic Sunday 3rd November - Nottingham Royal Concert Hall Monday 4th November - Manchester Bridgewater Hall Wednesday 6th November - Birmingham Symphony Hall Thursday 7th November - Portsmouth Guildhall Saturday 9th November - Bath The Forum Sunday 10th November - Oxford New Theatre Tuesday 12th November - Glasgow Royal Concert Hall Wednesday 13th November - Gateshead The Sage Friday 15th November - Southend Cliffs Pavilion Saturday 16th November - Cardiff St David's Hall Monday 18th November - London Royal Albert Hall Tuesday 19th November - London Royal Albert Hall
Pre-sale via Planet Rock from Thursday 18th October General On Sale from Friday 19th October
We please request that you do NOT buy any tickets from secondary ticketing sites and especially not for the Royal Albert Hall concerts.
When we went on sale for the RAH last year, we stated that there would be additional tickets released a couple of months before the shows and this will be the case again.
Don't give your money to secondary ticket selling sites for any concerts. These tickets are not always guaranteed to be genuine.
If you are on Facebook, there is a lovely group called "The Marillion Ticket Repository" where fans can buy and sell their tickets at face value, so please always use that as your first port of call for any sold out gigs.
We look forward to see you all on tour next year - the shows are going to be very special.
Oooohh the greatest week of my life, Rolling Stones Stockholm on the Thursday , marillion at royal Albert hall Friday , then two weeks in Orlando on the Saturday . Now a chance to go back and see two nights with two different sets !!!!
Life does come up trumps sometimes.
Oh and the stones were not a patch on los marillos
Fantastic news! Everything crossed we can get tickets for the RAH this time! 🤞🙂🎵...unless you fancy playing down here in West Cornwall !😂😂
Glad to see an alternative way to buy tickets, the last RAH ticket application was just demoralising as we couldn’t get seats even when we tried literally seconds after they were released
Possible to see you in France, next year ??? Please....😍🤗
How do we do the pre sale via planet rock? X
Come to Lyon, please 🙏
J espère un petit passage par la France 💖🐸💖
Brilliant guys can we get tickets through the Marillion "The Web Fanzine" to stand any chance of tickets?
Italy needs you!!!!!
You literally made my day you AMAZING BAND. Since I have been told about those shows, all I can think of is "thank god thank god thank god" and Jesus I love you all! Hope to see you in Lille (Nouveau Siècle ?) but I am not going to wait the answer! Liverpool, RAH, here I come!!
Like a kid in a candy store when a seen the Glasgow show , so pleased this will be my first time seeing these incredible musicians can’t wait
Steve Loizou Phil Woods let me know if you want tickets ASAP
Bridget Baxter road trip of Bath, Oxford then London x2 has got to be done hasn’t it 🚗🚗🚗
Did you not fancy doing York again? The reception you got was so much better than Gateshead.
Oke Top Pop I have see you more than 40 times and yes the next 40 is comming thank you all members of Marillion your a piece of my live see you somwhere 👋👋👋
I’m not going to go to RAH with regret they are weekdays but symphony hall is just down the road. I’m also hoping for some dates in Europe( if they will still let us in) sorry bout this Brexit shit My European friends 👫
Sadly the fans suffered from RAH mess last time. Lack of communication and poor management of tickets caused the problem. Looks like the issue has been addressed 👍
Bridgewater Hall in Manchester is brilliant and the acoustics marvellous but will it all be seated? I prefer to stand like at the academy.
Great news about the tour though.
Gonna have a thursday, Friday, Saturday 3 day break to catch them in Liverpool, then back home to Notts for the Sunday gig.
Well Blow me!!! Marillion are coming to my home town of Southend on Sea. I am over the moon. First time since the Fugazi tour i believe.
2 nights at the RAH? Fantastic! Hope to be there this time!!
Don't buy RFH tickets that say there's a limited view - the Rausing Circle seats at the extreme sides are AWFUL!
Just 30 years short of seeing you at Newcastle City Hall with H for the first time. Wish I still had the massive SE poster I bought.
During Incommunicado, H disappeared out of view, then he appeared right in front of me and my mates on the balcony after he climbed the stacks.
We are now hunkered down in the studio working through some new ideas with our faithful and brilliant producer engineer Michael Hunter. It’s going well and we’re all getting along swimmingly.
Japan was terrific and the reaction has been, frankly, heartwarming.
Thank you to Momoyo Idemoto for writing to us yesterday and saying “Now you became a precious band to me. Whenever I listen to your music in the morning, the casual daily scenery looks so beautiful. Your music cheers me up every day”.
Well that email cheered us up too.
If you’re a discerning fan you might have spotted a pattern to these eWebs where one of us talks about Marillion’s current and recent undertakings, only to follow with a plug for one of their solo tours. Well, I’m not going to do that.
Not until this paragraph anyway :o]
I’m chuffed to announce that my gig at the Nantwich Words and Music Festival next Tuesday has sold out, along with the h Natural Christmas show at St Eustache Church, Paris.
There are still a few tickets left for the following festive occasions.
Fancy a Christmas show in Gdansk? Or Copenhagen? It’ll be chilly. Failing that, there’s Oxford (not sure how many tickets are left).
Bring a bauble and snow boots...
Stary Manez Concert Hall, Gdansk, Poland - Saturday 15th December
Oh, and while I’m plugging shamelessly (well, with moderate shame…) my Diaries “The Invisible Man” Volumes 1 and 2 have been reprinted on my own Poison Apple imprint and are once again available, but this time direct from the “artiste” at a lower price at our Racket shop, marillion.com.
"Getting along swimmingly" well, one would blimming hope so lads 😂 I would have to say that your music has always had a special place in my heart too and it makes the daily nightbus ride from work here in the Big Smoke not only bearable, it makes me more kind and patient with people. I'm writing this and am having an epiphany at the same time: Marillion helps me be more human.
Keep getting along swimmingly fellas, if we all did that the Earth would be a better place 😊💖
You brighten so many people's lives with your wonderful music. I'm late to the Marillion party having only discovered you this year, but songs like Don't Hurt Yourself, Beautiful, Made Again and These Chains have really inspired me to get out of the bad place I was in. I'm now back at college studying towards my art degree and generally rebuilding my life as a happier, more confident person. I just wanted to let you know the part that Marillion's music has played in me getting to this place and to thank you.
Michael JT Martin Jukubski?
Looking forward to new album already, hope you remember belfast again on next tour. Good luck with the writing and recording
You guys sound better now than ever. it's incredible how powerful, haunting, meaningful and moving your music has always been. You guys have brought so much to my life ... thank you
We owe you one, Steve Hogarth. You gave us more and more years of Marillion. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to hear such masterpieces throughout the years, from the time I was a young kid.
Just want to say thanks for the memories. Have been so inspired over the years in times of adversity, but those times haven’t seemed so bad with the music. Stay well 😀
Are the two volumes available on kindle? And are they translated in French?
Why not take the best extracts of all studio albums produced,give it an updated revamp in the form of new added lyrics and music and call it the sounds that we made. A celebration of all what is great and unique with the Marillion sound.
Good luck with your creativity and emotions lads. I'm sure you'll come up with some more gems to enrich our lives. No rush.... take your time.... but so excited I can't wait. Best wishes Marillion... I'm still feasting on FEAR . Lordy it is just so good. X
Was so looking forward to Nantwich. Bought tickets ages ago then my dastardly employer decided to send me to a meeting in Saudi Arabia on the very day of the gig. Tickets not wasted however as have passed on to a colleague and fellow fan who'll no doubt have a great time. Here's to the next attempt at seeing you solo Mr H. Enjoy the Cheshire hospitality!
Looking forward to hearing what your collective musical genius comes up with for the next album. Also nice to hear everyone is getting along - seems to be such a rarity these days. ;)
Can't wait for Nantwich! See you very soon but for now I'm enjoying a well deserved break in Northumberland 😍 so I don't want the time to go too quickly 😉.
Well that's a pretty thorough update Steve 😊. Great news on the diaries, a definite purchase. As for future gigs, well the uk weekender just can't arrive quickly enough. Sooo excited about it 😊😊
America needs you. Please come back soon.
Thanks for reprinting your book, h.
Is anyone else having problems when you click continue reading?
De momento mi trabajo no me permite más, pero lo de Lisboa lo tenemos ya cerrado, hasta entonces mucha suerte Steve.
Our recent shows in Japan went very well. A few days off in Osaka and a very memorable trip to the temples of Kyoto followed by three exceptional concerts made for a fantastic experience (apart from the jet lag, which was brutal).
Downloads of our Japanese shows are available here -
what a fantastic weekend at Uden, lot of memories of the past, it was awesome to hear the old stuff with such an amazing band and of cours with such an amazing singer, well done. Hope you can do this again one day, maybe in Germany next time.
Hoping that The Steve Rothery band are openers in Montreal 2019....
I love that you're so at home in the Netherlands you forgot to mention Uden isn't in the UK :D ;)
Looking forward as always to another great Marillion album.
