Marillion with Friends Live in 2019

Marillion have announced that they will return to the road in the UK and Europe in 2019 with an extended line up of musicians joining the band.

The shows will feature the In Praise of Folly String Quartet plus Sam Morris on horn and Emma Halnan on flute, featured on select numbers throughout the show as on previous occasions.

The band, featuring Steve Hogarth (Lead vocals, lyrics, keyboards, guitars, percussion), Steve Rothery (Electric & acoustic guitars), Pete Trewavas (Bass, guitar & backing vocals), Mark Kelly (Keyboards, samples & effects, backing vocals, programming) and Ian Mosley (Drums, percussion) will be playing songs spanning their 14 album career with Steve Hogarth, as 2019 celebrates 30 years of him joining the band.

“Has it really been 30 years?!” Hogarth queried. “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.
