Bridging the gap between punk and prog rock

Since forming in Aylesbury in 1979, Marillion have been on an epic journey. From the departure of their original frontman to money challenges, things weren’t always smooth sailing, but the British neo-progressive rockers have enjoyed incredible creative chemistry as well as an unprecedented connection with their fans over the years.

With singer Fish at the helm, Marillion released their first album, Script For A Jester’s Tear, in 1983. More albums followed, with their third – 1985’s Misplaced Children – being the highest charting and most commercially successful. It also contained the band’s biggest single Kayleigh.

From 1989, Steve Hogarth took over as lead vocalist and the group ultimately racked up 20 UK top 40 singles. However, in the late ’90s Marillion struggled to find a place in the music industry. After their deal with EMI ended, they changed the musical landscape with a radical experiment – paying for tours and albums via a fan-funded system.

Away from record label pressure, Marillion started to produce some of their finest music yet including the albums Anoraknophobia in 2001 and F*** Everyone And Run (FEAR) in 2016.

In 2018, the band performed their first ever concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall, which had sold out in less than four minutes. After releasing their 18th album With Friends From The Orchestra in 2019, Marillion returned to the Royal Albert Hall for two more sold-out performances.

In addition to Hogarth, the group’s current line-up consists of keyboardist Mark Kelly, guitarist Steve Rothery, bassist Pete Trewavas and drummer Ian Mosley.

In October 2020, Marillion announced their 10-date The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Tour for November 2021 culminating with two nights at London’s Eventim Apollo.
