"Marillion were very much looking forward to the show which would have been a great conclusion to Marillion's November European tour.
"It is therefore with great regret and apology to Marillion's fans and to Mott The Hoople (who we respect enormously) that we must cease involvement in this event.
"We have been advised that anyone who has bought a ticket for the show to see Marillion should go to the point of sale to get their refund.
"In better news - we have been added to the line-up of the 2nd Cruise To The Edge (www.cruisetotheedge.com), alongside Yes, Steve Hackett, UK and many more. We hope for calm seas!
"We hope you are all having a great Summer and we look forward to seeing you all in November on the Sounds Live Tour.
"Ian, Mark, Pete, Steve and h"
