Marillion To Play Bristol Date For 2018 Tour

Marillion To Play Bristol Date For 2018 Tour

Prog rock giants Marillion will play Bristol’s Colston Hall next spring as part of a UK tour.

Since the bands formation over 40 years ago, they have had 19 Top 30 singles, four of which made the Top 10, while their most recent album, F E A R peaked at No. 4 in the UK album charts.

The band are widely acknowledged to be the first band to use the-now-commonplace crowdfunding scheme. Pledge Music and Oxford University have acknowledged that the band invented the business model. In the late 90s, fans sponsored an entire US tour. Their first crowd-funded album was Anoraknophobia, released in 2001.

Singer Steve Hogarth says: "By reinventing the business-model we have maintained a one-to-one relationship with our fans, and that feeling is never more apparent than at the live shows. It’s always a pleasure to share a room with “the family" and exchange the passion on stage with the passion off stage. We’re playing a few places we haven’t visited for a while. Long overdue. 'Really looking forward to this little outing."

Marillion play Bristol's Colston Hall on April 17, 2018. Visit seetickets.com for details.
