Marillion will embark on a very special 13-date orchestral UK tour in November 2019.
The ‘Marillion with Friends from the Orchestra’ tour will see the band perform select songs alongside the In Praise of Folly String Quartet plus Sam Morris on French Horn and Emma Halnan on Flute.
Kicking off at Liverpool Philharmonic on Friday 1st November and wrapping up with two nights at London Royal Albert Hall on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th November, Marillion will perform songs spanning their 14 album-career with Steve Hogarth to mark 30 years since he joined the band.
Steve Hogarth comments: “Has it really been 30 years?! Steve (Rothery) tells me it’s his 40th anniversary so it’s a double celebration!
“It’s amazing to be in this position after all this time. We’ve added this wonderful six-piece to the band for this entire tour. They’re brilliant players, good friends, and the chemistry we have together has already spoken for itself.
“I thought we’d never beat that night at the Royal Albert Hall (in December 2017) but there’s going to be two nights and two different RAH set lists this time, so let’s see what we, and our legendary fans can do.”
