Liverpool Philharmonic Hall
You may not have heard of Marillion but either directly or indirectly, you have almost certainly felt the influence of one of the UK music scene’s best-kept secrets.
Marillion’s music is, by its nature, tough to sum-up but perhaps can be approximately described as musically-experimental-yet-emotional rock, married to thought provoking, soulful lyrics - a powerful and moving cocktail which, for those who "get it", elicits extraordinary devotion. Their global fan base is impressive and hyper-engaged, with fans often travelling thousands of miles to attend live shows.
As far back as the late 1990s, Marillion have used creative and forward-thinking techniques to bypass the conventional music industry and banish the spectre of record company pressure and influence. With the support of their passionate fans and $60,000 in donations, Marillion fans sponsored an entire US tour, created their own website, the first rock ‘n’ roll website in the UK, and launched their own record label.
After over thirty years, the band shows no signs of slowing down and new generations of young fans are discovering the music for themselves. And there’s plenty of it. With a catalogue of 18 albums behind them, having written music that draws on every genre, Marillion can be considered progressive not just musically, but in just about every sense.
The band has evolved into a vibrant and international musical force. To those who already love Marillion, the band is something special. To the uninitiated, it’s a potential love affair waiting to happen.
