Doors 19.00pm - 22.30pm
Marillion return to Glasgow Royal Concert Hall during their nine date UK tour this September. The tour follows the release of their acclaimed new Marillion album, ‘An Hour Before It’s Dark’
The band said, “We are once again looking forward to our shows in September inconjunction with Kilimanjaro and we can't wait to get out there and play the new album to the fans”.
‘An Hour Before It's Dark’ - Whether it's the last hour you were allowed to play outside as a child before you had to go home, a reference to the fight against time in relation to the climate crisis or the last minutes in a person's life, Marillion once again put their finger on the pulse of time. Be it social, political, or personal issues, Marillion have never minced words and have always found a way to combine them with their own unique sound. The band are known for incredible songwriting, melodies and top-notch musicianship, while swimming against the tide, not bending to norms and limitations. The first single ‘Be Hard On Yourself’ couldn't be a better example.
“Despite the seemingly bleak contemplations across this album - the virus, our mortality, medical science, care, AND Leonard Cohen (ha ha) - the overall feeling of the music is surprisingly upbeat. I think the band are as on form as they ever were really, and the addition of Choir Noir has added another new soul and colour to things”
Founded in 1979, Marillion have, over the course of 20 studio albums, become one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands. Marillion embraced the internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience, long before most of their peers.
