Band ask fans to ‘insure’ they keep the show on the road Marillion have come up with a unique way to solve the problem of not being able to buy Pandemic insurance ahead of their UK tour. The band has already invested more than £150,000 on preparations for the 10-date “The Light at The End..
The 'difficult second album'. It's one of the most repeated cliches in rock music over the last few decades, but the number of bands who have their own examples are legion. Marillion were no exception when Fugazi arrived a year after the debut Script For A Jester's Tear in 1984. Personnel changes, producer issues and..
Marillion bring their 'The Light At The End Of The Tunnel' tour to the stages of Britain with a 10-date tour in November culminating in 2 nights at the London Eventim Apollo, Hammersmith. Steve Hogarth says: “No, it isn’t a train coming the other way, it is in fact, The Light at the End of..
'Fugazi is a good record, but could probably do with a remixing.'Nick Tauber, producer The weary jester lies alone, disrobed and sprawled across a hotel bed on a night that has too soon become morning.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT STRINGS, ANYWAY? - An observation, incorporating Marillion – With Friend’s at St Davids I’m ambivalent about live albums.

There has never been anything close to a better way to own this album, and I very much doubt there ever will. I have to open this review by stating clearly that this album was a hugely important one for me personally on its original release in March 1983, and remains a thing of fond..
The 1983 debut album from the Mad Marillos is the latest in the ongoing deluxe reissue series of the first eight albums for EMI, and it is a cracker of a set. Have a gander at the goodies included this time around: On the first disc, a sparkling new 2020 remix of the album -..
Ask ten Marillion fans what the band's best album is, and it's possible that you'll get ten different answers. By now, I think I've heard every one of their eighteen albums proclaimed to be the height of their mammoth career (even the sometimes maligned marillion.com, once staunchly championed to me in a concert lineup by..
