Marillion have announced The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Tour for 2021, with ten dates culminating in two Hammersmith Apollo gigs, one seating, one standing.
Steve Hogarth told us: “We’re currently writing album number 19 and, as you might imagine, looking forward with every sinew to getting back on the road and playing it to you.
“Not as much as my wife’s looking forward to getting me out of the house though…!”
The recent Marillion Couch Convention raised £31,530 for their crew who have been hard hit financially by the pandemic.
Of the success of the weekend, Mark Kelly said: “What a weekend it was! We were totally stunned and knocked out by everyone’s involvement in everything that went on, from Steve Rothery’s late night cocktails to Pete’s Bass Masterclass. Ian’s Drum Q&A and my early morning fun run and all the music, chat and fancy dress in between.
“It was fun for us to be in the audience, too, reading and reacting to all your comments as the shows were streamed. The crew tip-jar was overflowing with your generosity, you raised a substantial sum for our wonderful crew. The money will go a long way to helping them survive a difficult year. Thank you!”
