With the long, dark days of Covid-19, hopefully, behind us by then, Marillion will shed some light across the stages of Britain with a 10-date tour in November 2021.
Singer Steve Hogarth remarked: “We’re currently writing album number 19 and, as you might imagine, looking forward with every sinew to getting back on the road and playing it to you. Not as much as my wife’s looking forward to getting me out of the house though.”
Heading out under the banner head of it being Marillion’s The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Tour, it will culminate in two nights at the London Eventim Apollo, in Hammersmith, London, where one night will be seated and one night standing.
Tickets for the tour go on sale from this coming Friday 23rd October and can be obtained by clicking here.
2020 has been a terrible year for everyone and Marillion has stated they are grateful for the continued support of their family of faithful fans, particularly the wonderful donations from the Couch Convention weekend in September that raised £31,530 for their crew who have been hard hit financially by the pandemic.
“We are extremely fortunate, we had set aside this year to make our 19th studio album and so we saved up a bit and we budgeted for a year on the ground, before this plague broke,” added Hogarth.
Of the success of the Couuch Convention weekend, keyboard player Mark Kelly said: “What a weekend it was! We were totally stunned and knocked out by everyone’s involvement in everything that went on, from Steve Rothery’s late night cocktails to Pete’s Bass Masterclass. Ian’s Drum Q&A and my early morning fun run and all the music, chat and fancy dress in between.
“It was fun for us to be in the audience, too, reading and reacting to all your comments as the shows were streamed. The crew tip-jar was overflowing with your generosity, you raised a substantial sum for our wonderful crew. The money will go a long way to helping them survive a difficult year. Thank you!”
