Friends From The Orchestra 2019 EU Tour
Dear All,

As we approach the final few shows of our touring schedule of 2018, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for the support and love that you have, once again, shown us this year.

We have the best fans in the world and maybe we don’t tell you often enough.

It’s been a terrific 12 months. We seem to be gathering new fans all the time so if you’re a newbie (or a returbie) welcome to a better way of life :o]

You’ve certainly made ours better and together we’ve made some great memories. Thanks to you, we’re free-er than ever to make the music we choose, say what we want to say, and to plan bigger and better shows.

Next year we have our FIVE Marillion Weekends (3 which have sold out already - thank you)


At the end of the year we will be touring the UK and Europe with our 'Marillion With Friends From The Orchestra' shows. If you were at the RAH, or Paris Le Zenith, or Utrecht Vredenburg last Autumn, you’ll be aware of the chemistry of this fusion. We’re going to take it further.

The UK dates are already on sale and the Europe dates are being announced this week so keep an eye on


for all the details!

In between all the gigs planned we will be writing our next album which *should* be able to be revealed to the world sometime in 2020.

Hard to put a date on it because we won’t compromise the music but we will of course keep you updated.

In the meantime, we wish you all a Happy Xmas and a fabulous New Year and we'll see you on the other side.

h, Ian, Mark, Pete and Steve
