So now I'm in tears in the office, confirming to my colleagues (yet again) that I'm absolutely mad... What a performance!
That gives me chills. Always been one of my favourites, and H smashed it. Very happy to see that one live, and will be annoying my neighbours with it repeatedly when the blu ray arrives.
Any chance of "Afraid of Sunlight" getting a preview? Loved the hint we got in the behind the scenes clip.
The part where h sings 'Everybody in the whole of the world ...' gave me goosebumps. Wow. Can't wait to see the rest of it. Hope you guys are immensely proud x
Who wrote the arrangements for the strings/horn/flute?
I am sitting on the balcony of my holiday hotel at 20 degrees while hearing it loud. And I can tell you guys I have goosebumps all over my body. It was so amazing at the RAH and it is wonderful to see and hear it again thinking of this very special night. I love this song so much. It is one of my favorites and seeing it there was absolutely gorgeous!😘😘😘❤️❤️❤️
OMG!! And people wonder why we are such fans? Really?!
Goosebumps and tears here, this is so f**king great !
h fu*king owns that performance. moved to tears. an amazing night. thank you Marillion...
Well given that I got teary just reading this, I can only imagine how much of a mess I'll be once I actually watch it...
Now THAT was the way to absolutely nail the start of the second half of an already perfect set. Thing is, it only got even better after that!!! Bringing back joyous memomies of The Royal Albert...and building up even more excitement for The Colston, Bristol next month.
That is just hairs raised on the back of my neck, tears in my eyes wonderful. I was there and it had the same effect then
Marillion, after watching this clip I realise that I'm addicted to your music. The thrills and the highs... Thank you for sharing just a bit of your magic - it will keep me going until I can mainline on you when my Bluray supply arrives.
This is magnificent, no words to express it... I was in tears in Zenith from the first notes, and now again crying in front of the screen, the capture is beyond perfection. Well done to all involved <3
that was outstanding.....and they somehow make it all seem so effortless (which of course it isn`t)
This really was one of the many highlights of the evening!!!! 💙
A special day that I will never forget...just wonderful, and this start to set 2 was just icing on the many tiered cake
Agnès Rabanel dommage que ce soit pas White Paper, mais bientôt j'aurais le BlueRay en on pourra le regarder et se rappeller ce merveilleux weekend
You can see/hear why h was worried about what he might have done to his voice during this performance (and was worried about the rest of the gig) because he really does put his all into it
This is magnificent. My son is fairly new to Marillion and I took him to this concert. It was his favourite part of the evening, and he will love this. Even my 5 year old granddaughter loves this song, so you have made 3 generations very happy this evening. Thank you. :)
Tear inducing performance, one of my top 3 Marillion tracks stunningly showcased, can’t wait for the deluxe edition to land ❤️❤️
Thank you for sharing this early.My husband is treating me to the special edition.Wish we had a time machine to go back to that memorable night.
Just watched that, sang along right up to the end, then I started crying. Love you guys so fucking much! <3 Wish I had been there.
Wow - just wow! Goosebumps all over - cannot wait for this to land on my mat! Anything or anyone else is just going to have to whistle that day!
Outstanding! At this point I’d totally lost it and was crying ! Goosebumps, every emotion running through me, smiling or trying to (!!), can’t wait to relive it over and over again!!🤩
Flying to the UK (my first time there) for the show was a dream come true. I was so glad to have been able to be there. Meeting dozens of the UK fans and hugging some of the NA fans at the pre-gig made for an electric evening.
Steve est le plus grand chanteur que je connaisse j'ai vu une soixantaine de concerts en passant par toto scorpions simple minds Aerosmith Ac/Dc bon Jovi je peux vous dire que c'est les concerts de marillion qui vous procure autant d'émotion grâce à cette voix magnifique de Steve ces mélodies cette communion avec le public Marillion sort largement du lot vivement la sortie du concert du royal Albert hall 😙😙😙😙😙💓💓💓💓💓
I named my daughter Kayleigh. Thanks Marillion!! One of the greatest bands ever! Love their concerts! Their music is magical!
Just watched Marillion on TOTP Kayleigh, great
Saw them when they toured in the US for Marbles. Probably the best concert I’ve ever seen.
THE BEST BAND EVER !!! mm♥️😉🇨🇭️
It was a truly magical evening - singer/band - all right at the top of their game. Unforgettable.
My fiancée and I saw them perform songs off FEAR in San Francisco the night before the presidential election. It was both powerful and portent.
My fiancée — a relatively new fan who's seen some of the best bands and shows — was awestruck.
I'm sure the Paris show was way better... We had the most beautiful evening that's a fact...!🤩
H is a wonderful singer and the band is really great on stage
Congratulations for Re-Entry on #21 with "Brave" in the Official German Albumcharts (Offizielle Deutsche Charts).
Shame the fans got ripped of for tickets 🙁
Just saw them a few weeks ago. So much talent in these guys!
the best band in the world, their songs are epic, I'm a fan of them for my uncle 🇻🇪✌🏻🤩
Spotify announced today the launch of a new tool called Line-In that will allow its community members to offer input about the music data it has on file, like genre, mood, explicitness and more. If you are a Spotify user would you please help us reach a wider audience by giving our albums and tracks some labels that you think apply to our music. We would rather you as a fan of our music do this than leave it to chance which could result in some inappropriate labels such and “Scottish Heavy Metal” and “EDM”
The tool is currently only available to desktop users, and is accessible by clicking on the three dots next to Artist, Album or Song, then choosing “Suggest an Edit.” ... See moreSee less
Don't use Spotify or anything like it I just buy a CD and play it.
many of you may already know this, but just in case, this feature works on the desktop app version and not the desktop browser-based version.
Marillion are not easy to categorise. To me they span lots of genres. I’ll stick to vinyl and let the younger fans figure this out 🙂
If pink floyd and big country had a baby
The power of metadata... I touch on this in some of my lectures in my analytics class.
“Suggest an Edit” sounds about right as a genre.
EDM? Edinburgh Death Metal?
Usually when I use the ”artist radio” feature on Spotify I can find other artists I like. Tried that with Marillion and it suggested mostly 80's style prog, which is a shame. No offense to those artists or those who like them. They're like Talk Talk meets Radiohead meets Coldplay meets Pink Floyd, if that’s a category.
Listening to CAS on Spotify Web Player at the moment but can't find the "suggest an edit" option. Any ideas? Ta.
Songs about Death and Water it is then!!!
"Marillion music" is a genre of its own, isn't it?
Techdeath Djent it is then.
You arent EDM by any stretch. The Fish years are classic Babylonian Honey-Funk, while the Hogarth Era veers quite close to Neo-Mayan Fusion. Shame how people have gotten that wrong all this time... rock journalists just don't get it
Heart-shattering liquid prog, I believe
For the first four albums, Marillion were one of the best Scottish Heavy Metal bands going around.
Are we the ones to curate music these days? The best in all of us will use the right ways to convey the appreciation of music, as I'm pretty darned sure Marillion will want to put out doom sludge prog someday... :-D
But Marillion are my favourite Scottish heavy metal band 😂
I categorise them as rock. Nice and simple and covers everything they do.
What do you mean Marillion aren't EDM?
The reason i like the music is of me. Now, to help you to make more money, well ... too much.. did you guys made the pact?
Mark, what do you propose as labels? Since I can no longer put you in the prog bin, neither rock, neither ....... How am I suppose to label you ? ahahaha
Elaborating on Mark’s message, it seems this can only be done via the downloaded Spotify desktop application and not via the Spotify player used in a web browser.
Would be happy to do so, but listen to Spotify on my tablet.
One of Spotify's suggested tags was "epic." I approved that one. :D
Is there a category called MBM or Most Brilliant Music
It’s been an incredible eighteen months for Marillion. A top five album, and a career topping sell-out show at London’s Royal Albert Hall have crowned their renaissance. Preparing to hit the road for a final run of dates in support of latest album ‘F.E.A.
I was at that Belfast concert in The Empire in 2004 that he was talking about in this interview. It was tiny, no band lightshow because there was no room ... and basically the most amazing pub gig ever. There couldn’t have been a dry eye on the house when they played Easter. It was incredible. Looking forward to seeing you back in Belfast again next month, lads. And it will be Amanda Hosking's first show too!
H, You're a really wonderful person, thank you for letting me know you and you gave me a little bit of your time, despite the fatigue, thanks again for your music, my friends think I'm crazy, but every time I listen to them I love them more, their songs are a refuge for me, they reflect a Lot of things that I think and feel, but I'm not able to to say. Thank, Chile love Marillion!!!!
Great article. Never knew that full story of Out of this World.
The story about Donald Campbell is fantastic! Out of this world. ❤️
"I so wanted it to be extraordinary; I wanted everything about it to be the ultimate"
And it was! Cannot wait to see this experience on blue ray!
You're a legend Steve. Can't wait to see you all in York :)
Please come to Helsinki!!
That last question though, and that answer. Yes, yes, yes...
This is a great interview- Thank you for your music!!!!
Deserve more acclaim than they get such a talented group of guys that make such beautiful music that captivates the soul.
I love them in any representation they have and still do make gorgeous music. One of the most underrated bands on the planet.
Te viste Mick Stead? 😍

Once again... wow! Just can't wait to enjoy and dream with that stunning version of Afraid of Sunlight in the teaser! (among many) Thanks for your art!
Look for some truth these days and it's nowhere to be found. Then one day I came upon this weird band from England. I can't wait for the dvd and am very sorry that I missed this last tour. See them live is all I can say.
I love this band to bits. Amazing music year after year. Other bands I like have lost their magic with the passage of time but Marillion keep on coming up with music that shakes the core of my soul. And seeing them live in the open air Roman theatre in Verona was such a special night: a dream come true. Thanks, guys!
It was one of the best concerts I have ever been to. I ordered the special edition today and am also really looking to watching it at the cinema in Leeds on the 26th....😊
Dear Arne Haakon,
Thank you for your order at Racket Records :-)
Grateful you came to 🇺🇸 having so many fans around the 🌎
Did not know they were still around. You used to love the band with posters on every wall! X
Was so great to finally see them in Dallas last month, now can’t wait to see this!
This was such an amazing night, with such amazing people..... and the best band in the world!! I can't wait....when's April???
Just pre ordered the Blu Ray... is it April yet? lol
I've got something in my eye again ... simply unforgettable!
So looking forward to re-living this, hope you'll play there again one day! 💖💖💖💖💖
Já comprei ontem o Bluray
Estou ansioso depois do concerto que vi em Paris...
It was the most amazing evening ! Can't wait to re-live it with the dvd. 😎
Ordered yesterday, can‘t wait sooo long
Podrían tocar en el Municipal de Santiago un segundo concierto cuando vengan. Será más caro pero valdrá la pena. Saludos desde Chile
We have also been told that our worldwide fan-clubs have plans for screening-events, so please contact your local fan club for details (excluding UK).
We believe that this gig is up there with our best. It was a night most precious in our memories and our vision and sound team have brilliantly captured the vibration (which was pretty stellar on the night).
We hope you enjoy reliving this already-legendary concert.
As some of you are aware, we made a mistake on the postage costs for the Royal Albert Hall Special Edition which resulted in very high postage charges. This has now been resolved and the postage prices quoted are correct.
Those of you who have already ordered, please bear with us and you will be issued a refund for the difference in price. It's going to take us quite a few days so please be patient.
No need to email us as it is all in hand.
Many apologies - it's just 'one of those days'.
The Racket Records Team.
How can i order it from Argentina? Is only possible buying in the web shop?
Cool to see marillion accompanied by strings! I saw Rush's "Clockwork Angels" tour with a strimg ensemble. It was increbible! I'm sure this will be just as spectacular!
Lucy Jordache Marillion will there by any signed special editions? Not that I want to give the guys writing cramp..
Wow bilion times (!) Thanks so much for your art! Thanks so much!
Ordered. Don't you just hate the "I'm not a robot" thing 😡
Done. Bluray version!
Ordered!!! Now looking forward to seeing the postman soon :)
Ordered the deluxe edition as I'm in Aus and wasn't able to go. Can't wait for this. Any idea on dates?
Truly magical night fantastic music in a great setting a DVD every Marillion fan should have. So glad I got to go to this concert
Yeah!!! Just ordered..!! I was priviled to be there in own person up at the rafters. Excited how it was looked from up close.. :)
You guys really deserved this !
Allez on va recracher au bassinet !!!!
Mais quand on aime...
Et puis ça rappelera des souvenirs Herve Lamia. Quelques jours plus tôt au zénith on y était nous !!
Quick question Lucy, is the 40 page, 12" x 12" hardback "art book" the show's program condensed into book form? I ordered the program and I've yet to view it, as I am waiting for the live show to go along with it. Thanks for your time.
Can I use Racket Credits towards this? There is no option to when I have added it to my basket.
I’ll order as soon as i get home!!!!
Lucy all formats will be released April 2nd 2018 ???
Will this and the Brave box set be available to buy on the tour. decided to go to Belfast fae Aberdeen?
