Marillion

As we are just over half way through our UK tour, we just wanted to say a few words to thank you for your support. Itโ€™s been a great tour. Selling out these theatres and sharing our music with fans and family old, new and recurring has been a blast with lots of moments to remember and keep us smiling.

We love reading your feedback, good and bad so please tell us what you think about the choice of venues, songs, and anything else you would like us to know. After the tour ends we are planning to go back into the studio to get working on album No. 19. Weโ€™ll see you later in the year if you are coming to any of our remaining shows. We must do it again sometime.
See you soon.
Pete, H, Mark, Steve and Ian.

Thanks for coming back to Ireland for two wonderful and contrasting shows. Was almost like a mini Marillion weekend for us fans that went to both. Have to say in general the whole M gig experience has moved up to a whole other level since FEAR and the RAH show. The venues, light show, projections, sound, performance. It's great to see the band having the success they deserve and being able to put on a production that truly does justice to the grand scope of their artistic vision. As for the two shows I attended. Both superb in different ways. Belfast Ulster Hall is a beautiful venue and really allowed the spectacular visuals to shine, with a respectful and appreciative audience. Dublin was more a darkened speakeasy kinda venue. So the show was appropriately more lighthearted between tracks and the band really responded. Also, it was Dublin, so I believe both band and audience had partaken in perhaps a wee bit too much of the black stuff! ๐Ÿ˜‚ In conclusion, you're at a real peak on this tour and in your career right now. Long may it last and long may you run... ๐Ÿ‘

Bristol on Tuesday was brilliant, one of my favourite Marillion gigs for a number of years. Great balanced set with outstanding performances from you all. Loved sitting down with an uninterrupted view of the stage allowing me to get lost in the music without the talking and wandering heads that interrupt most standing gigs. Crowd respectful then very appreciative between songs. See you again soon!

I love standing if i can get to the front, but being 5ft nothing it's a bit of a nightmare otherwise, so was nice to actually be able to see (apart from the couple in front that made out all the way through!!!!) Perfect senario would be standing organised on a height system. Or a short person standing area, with perhaps some boxes.

Looking forward to seeing you in York and hoping the crowd are more animated than in Gateshead. I think the way forward, venue wise, is with combination standing and sitting venues, such as St George's Hall in Bradford. Those sitting feed off the energy of those standing, and this makes for a better audience atmosphere

Absolutely Loved the Symphony Hall Birmingham (Even though i'm nowhere near local) . Best sound i've heard in a very long time. Also adored Brighton Dome. (But that is just me being selfish because its the closest ๐Ÿ˜‰) Thank you for continuing to astonish and move me with your live performances , even after 35 years

Loved both gigs Iโ€™ve seen so far (Gateshead & Birmingham). The band looked a little confused at the beginning of the Gateshead gig by the crowd reaction ( pin drop quiet durning the songs and loud after each song finished). Starting the set with El Dorado doesnโ€™t help change this reaction. That said the setlist is a refreshing change after recent years - especially the encores. Thanks for Swapping the setlist around so far. Itโ€™s much appreciated by those of us doing multiple shows. The venues on this tour are stunning- especially Birmingham symphony hall. See you in York on Sunday - letโ€™s end the tour on a high ! ๐Ÿ™‚

Totally agree with Tony - all seated makes for a slightly subdued audience. It works okay for the beautiful FEAR, which is more for listening, but as the evening wears on it would be so much better to be on our feet. A combination of the two things at venues would be ideal, then most people would be happy. Having said that - I've had a ball both evenings, and I'm sure it'll be the same in Reading tonight and Liverpool on Saturday. Thanks as always for a great series of gigs x

This is a really interesting feed because I know the band have to play venues of a certain size and it got me thinking about how flexible venues are to have a mix of standing and sitting. Saw Elbow last year at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh - the seats were removed from the traditional stalls area to give a standing area - atmosphere was amazing. Not sure if venues charge more to provide this choice? One thing about starting the show with El Dorado - it worked brilliantly at the RAH so maybe the band were trying to replicate that vibe. Mind you being the contrary old tart that I am, I'll always say it should be mandatory that they start with Splintering Heart...

Echoing what others have said regarding sitting versus standing, would have liked a combo of the two so that you could choose to stand (have to be honest, I hated sitting and felt restrained and not able to sing along so much) Set list was awesome but I wanted to sing and dance! Thanks Marillion for bringing light to the darkness. X

The Dublin show was fantastic. Loved every minute of it. Hope we don't have too long to wait for you to return. :)

An aural and visual triumph! The Birmingham Symphony Hall was the perfect venue for the band; perfect sound and an incredible atmosphere. I canโ€™t thank everyone who has been involved in the production of this tour enough. I may be late to the Marillion live experience, but Iโ€™m sure going to make up for lost time. Thank you! On my way now to Reading for your show at the Hexagon this evening.

Brighton venue was lovely and I enjoyed the mix of songs. I just feel a combined seated/standing venue (where seats can be reserved) is a better option. We ended up standing at the back for the end at Brighton as songs are too good to sit still to. But, for a lot of people, they prefer or need to sit. But great show, as always.

It was Birmingham for us not necessarily by choice more down to day of the week and ticket sales.The symphony hall is a brilliant venue although we were in the grand tier and as I am petrified of heights its was most certainly a challenge , but anything for you. The sound and set list was fantastically apt I was there with my husband and our dear friend Steve TallynTallyn, were gave it all we had singing and waving throughout the performance. Love hearing you are starting to work another album can I pay now xxxccc

Coming to see you tomorrow in Liverpool first time for many a year I'm sorry to say 2006 I think it was but family, work commitments stopped me from coming to concerts but still got the albums and to say I can't wait is a massive understatement ๐Ÿ˜Š

I just bloody loved the Birmingham show. Iโ€™m not a fish Marillion fan although I can appreciate the songs when I hear them and H sang them fantastically. I didnโ€™t mind sitting and we were up in the gods. It was a marvellous gig and I just want to thank you for a wonderful night. ๐Ÿ’œ

Brighton on Monday was great but as someone else said the atmosphere can feel a little subdued when it's seating only. Standing we are naturally more animated, and this certainly has a feedback loop that the fans and the artists pick up on, this in turn adds to the atmosphere and enhancers the experience for all concerned. I had an amazing time though all the same. โ˜บ

See you tonight for my 5th gig on this tour, and in my hometown too. I'm glad the sun is shining so brightly here in Reading for you. It's been wonderful to share so many moments with you all. I know I'll be a weeping wreck tonight - so many memories will be brought back of the first time I ever saw the band in the good old Target pub (now no longer there unfortunately) back in the 80's. Thank you for everything - been the best run-up to my Birthday in a couple of weeks. Only criticism - I don't think El Dorado works as an opener. After all the excitement and anticipation waiting for the band to get on stage, I think most people would prefer a more lively opener, especially more casual, less "hardcore" fans. Oh but I love seated gigs, especially those where you can actually sit close enough to the stage to feel part of it instead of being relegated to far back and upstairs! See you later xx

Birmingham Symphony Hall was my first time seeing the band since I saw the Season's End tour at Aston Villa Leisure Centre back wheneveritwas. Greatly enjoyed the show and the venue. The sound was as good as I've ever heard at a concert. That said, I do prefer the greater energy you get from a standing crowd and it was great to have everyone up on their feet for the closing songs.

Not seem them since leamington 2016 with simon having cancer its been a bit hit and miss if he feels well enough.we went to Birmingham and it was amazing brilliant venue i know thereโ€™s a debate sit or stand for simon sitting was ideal 3 rows from the front he was well into it clapping and smiling we are going to liverpool so hoping for more of the same .personally and simon thinks the same mixing the venues up is a good idea yes i know its not for everyone we all cant like the same venues setlist etc just think your only on this planet the once so sit back enjoy the moment take those memories away with you .huge thanks to Lucy Jordache Marillion the band all those people behind the scenes

Seating venues have been a conversation point. There are pros and cons. I enjoyed sitting for once and really concentrating on the music instead of all the people standing around me. The result is a somewhat more restrained audience. I'm interested what the band thinks and the differences they see from their perspective.

I like Vicar Street. Apart from two pepole talking through the first couple of songs I had a great experience. Don't forget your Irish fans and come back soon :)

I was overjoyed to see you all on the 16th April at Brighton Dome this year. Last time I saw Marillion play that venue was on the 2nd March 1984! Please donโ€™t leave it so long next time. Itโ€™s a beautiful venue with a rich history and deserves decent bands, groups and musicians to do it proud. I was an original member of the Web fan club and am still a proud โ€˜Freakโ€™. All the best for the rest of the tour. The set list was excellent.

Went to Gateshead last week. Going to Liverpool and York gigs in the next few days. Loved the Sage as a venue. The set list was wonderful. Great performance. My only negative was that, at nearly 60 years old (in September) I much prefer to stand at gigs. There has been a bit of a debate recently about sitting/standing at gigs. Like I say, I much prefer to stand. See you soon guys.

Thanks so much for having Riccardo Romano and Jennifer Rothery doing the Support! ๐Ÿ˜ That makes me visiting your Gig in Brighton, flying over from Germany! ๐Ÿค— Well done, Steven Rothery, to introduce them! Really nice! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜ Thanks to Jennifer Bradley, for showing up at the Pre-Gig-Meeting! Suddenly she was at the table and said hello! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜ Loved Brighton Dome as Venue! Great history, great building, great acoustic in such a nice City! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ And a Band enjoying to play there... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜Š

Personally not a massive fan of Mad into AoS but thatโ€™s a minor quibble. Echo whatโ€™s said above I think the mixed Seating/standing is the way forward where possible. You canโ€™t pogo to Garden Party in the middle of the aisle (I know because I tried ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Marillion your music runs through my veins...it is pure life itself. Both my daughters were born to Easter...on repeat...prolonger..or proglonged so many other tracks slipping to my head whilst i was pushing. That was 27 years back and 24. You are the sound track to my life and. I never tire of your beautiful voice Steve.. pashion , anger, calming. Now the sad bit..i do have a slow growing brain tumor and i may have decade left to be blissed out of my body a few more times. I met my husband 8 years ago...and why ..because he and i love Marillion. He is plays guitar and i piano and if often singing around the house those lyrics of a lifetime. I was completely washed over a balm of only the best highs a band can do. Out of body experience. You will be with me through my life whatever until my seasons have ended. Much love to all the band and thank you for being the best band ever in my eyes ๐Ÿ๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒป

Bristol tonight...... been waiting 7 years too see the best band in the world................

Great gig tonight thanks Mr H and the boys for many goosebump moments especially THAT solo Mr Rothery on Sugar Mice just fucking awesome..

Oh, and PS. "Support" band (Watercolours?) weren't too shabby either! Definite (but not derivative) flavours of Marillion there. "Uncle Mark" must have been so proud.

Guys, you were awesome last night... Great set. Hearing The Party took me back nearly 30 years to the Aston Villa leisure centre for The Holidays in Eden tour. I won tickets to see you and have been hooked ever since. Thanks for the journey!

Have a nice evening fellas, as long as you save the very best for York ;)

We did and we were blown away! What a wonderful experience the gig was. Can't speak highly enough of you. Have waited a very very long time to see you and will certainly try to get to your next one in Brighton. Please come back.

Me & my wife Debs were at Cambridge what a fantastic show wish we were there at Brighton tonight as well have a great evening ๐Ÿ˜Š

Just one word for the Bristol gig last night.

Hi, I was very disappointed to hear so little of the pre 88 (Fish era) songs at Fridays concert at Cambridge. I realise that after 18 albums selecting for the playlist is not easy but the early songs were the ones that made Marillion famous.

I've seen Marillion play Easter several times. Last night at Cambridge was Steve Rothery's best ever Easter guitar solo ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ‘

What a fantastic evening not seen the guy's for 8 years we were just a few rows from the front the sound was brilliant and loved the set list can't wait to see you again soon ๐Ÿ˜€

Superb performance thank you Marillionโค

Loved it!! Lucky to be near the front. Can't wait to see you again Marillion. Atmosphere was amazing!! Lucky enough to have been at RAH too!!

I think thatโ€™s me with my hands I the air ๐Ÿ™‚

Marillion should play in Glasgow again sometime, they haven't played in Scotland for years.

Amazing night, perfect in every way and great to hear songs from the first EP to the latest LP. Even being stranded in Brum after my train was cancelled couldnโ€™t spoil a fantastic night. Thank you Marillion ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜Ž

I have just read all the comments moaning about the lack of fish content when you have nearly thirty of material you can't please everyone in a two hour slot. I thought it was a good balance great gig ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Great show at Cambridge. First time at the venue. Impressed.

no fish

Brilliant gig, odd choice of songs but I guess you canโ€™t please everyone all the time. As usual the band delivered ๐Ÿ‘

Just a great gig :) Come back soon Richard Tofts

Off into Birmingham for a night out but sadly no ticket!! Hope you all have a fab time!! Symphony Hall is just awesome!!

Cambridge was a brilliant evening. Great atmosphere, anthemic songs, hugely entertaining ๐Ÿ˜Š. Thank you

Thank you for a fantastic evening in Cambridge :)

Fantastic gig. Had a great night.

Just 2 nights to Birmingham and I can't wait to get this year's "fix". This'll be my son (14) Alex's first Marillion gig... any chance of a call-out, corny I know but hey I had to ask ?! :D More than I/we/us "Deserve" I know...

Canโ€™t wait for tomorrow night in Brum. Finally got round to seeing Marillion with H. Saw them at Milton Keynes in 86, Garden Party tour, seems like a lifetime ago!

Roll on tomorrow, birthday celebrations start early.

The most underrated bassist on the planet

Pete is a great bass player.

Fantastic gig again last night. Cant wait for York! Loved the setlist. Great to see and hear some tracks not played for ages!

Really wanted to go to Liverpool show but sold out, jealous! Made up the band are selling out shows though!

And he looks excellent too <3

Great night again lads - fantastic show, as ever.

Last saw you guys at Middlesbrough Town Hall... Holidays in Eden tour I think! BRILLIANT to see you again. Had me in tears with some of the FEAR stuff tonight especially... very real shit eh? Great show. Sorry we were a bit stiff as an audience.... reckon it IS all that wood afterall ๐Ÿ˜‰

Amazing gig at The Sage tonight. Absolutely brilliant yet again. Totally reinforces why I have been a fan for 36 years! Just a bit gutted that we all shouted out for Garden Party at the expense of Easter. I got so excited when I saw Steve R gearing up his acoustic guitar for Easter. Hey ho...still a brilliant brilliant gig x

I'll put my tin hat on, but the gig was a let down for me. Can't fault the musicianship, and I knew there would be a lot from the latest album, but no Easter, no Release, when it seems they were played at other gigs left me feeling short changed. Those 2 tracks were the best cassette single I've ever bought in 1990 and have always wanted to hear them live. Sorry Marillion, but you didnt get the balance right on your song choices. It's not a case of clamouring to the masses, it's just having a bit more insight into why people pay 35 quid to come and see you.

See you there . We're a way back in the stalls

Cannot wait haven't slept for 2 nights

Anyone whos going are in for a treat, saw them sunday in belfast and they were terrific

Great gig last night! Enjoyed every moment, 'out of this world',stood out for me with the Donald Campbell footage on screen,mesmerizing :)

we marillo's must be special as at Cambridge we had all 3 the release then easter then garden party. btw please don't start fish v h argument it was boring years ago .

You can blame the audience for that Alan Hartwell. Easter was obviously to be played as the encore and they were persuaded by members of the crowd at the front left to play Garden Party which was why Steve dumped the acoustic he was holding and grabbed the electric. Personally I thought the show and set list were fantastic - as did everyone else I spoke to. I just bought tickets for York on the strength of last night's show.

Blown away.... fantastic performance, h was on fire tonight!! Shed a few tears here and there.... donโ€™t leave it so long next time to come back!!!

Hopefully last nightโ€™s gig was better attended than the one in the picture...

Saw your concert at The Arcada in St. Charles in February. Phenomenal gig! Been a fan since the mid 80's. Good luck on the remainder of the tour and hope to see you all back in the United States sometime soon. Take care & God Bless!

Amazing gig. The best concert I've ever been to!

ABSOLUTELY BUZZING!! Travelled from Barnsley to my hometown to see my favourite band in the world!! What a fantastic venue. Geordieland welcomes the Marillion family!!!!

Best gig I've been to! & first time at the Sage. Thanks

Every band I see going forward, needs to perform at The Sage! What a fantastic venue & show earlier tonight!

Heidi Sattler Pritchard, you and Tom in on this check too.๐Ÿ˜‰

Fecking fantastic. You guys played your hearts out. Well done boys.. pitty the crowd was so "sedate".

Hoping to hear some classics along with the new material? First time Iโ€™m seeing them!

I'm soooo excited! See you soon. Ps. Please please please open with The Release ๐Ÿ˜

What a fantastic gig, so worth the 4 hour drive to get home

Thatโ€™s quite a house with the floor and 2 tiers!

See you there.... I'm right at the back.... Somewhere

You all lucky there๐Ÿ˜†why not me๐Ÿค.....enjoy!๐Ÿ‘

Fantastic gig,class setlist of old and new and a great venue
