  BREAKING NEWS: MARILLION TO PLAY SEVEN UK DATES IN APRIL
11th September 2017

Marillion will play seven UK dates in April 2018 on the back of their October show at The Royal Albert Hall, which sold out within four minutes of going on sale, and The London Palladium in November, which also sold out in record time.

Since their formation, Marillion have had nineteen Top Thirty singles, four of which made the Top Ten.

Their most recent album, F E A R (Fuck Everyone And Run), peaked at number four in the UK album charts and reached number one in the rock chart last year.

Steve Hogarth tells us:

"I have been part of this band now for twenty-seven years and it barely feels like ten. I think we're as inspired as we ever were, and we're still enjoying creating together.

"Luckily our music has remained free to evolve and change without the constraints of a corporate music business which otherwise might have killed us.

"By reinventing the business-model we have maintained a one-to-one relationship with our fans, and that feeling is never more apparent than at the live shows. It's always a pleasure to share a room with 'the family' and exchange the passion on stage with the passion off stage.

"We're playing a few places we haven't visited for a while. Long overdue. Really looking forward to this little outing."

2018 tour dates are:
Wednesday 11th April: Gateshead The Sage
Friday 13th April: Cambridge Corn Exchange
Saturday 14th April: Birmingham Symphony Hall
Monday 16th April: Brighton Dome
Tuesday 17th April: Bristol Colston Hall
Thursday 19th April: Reading Hexagon
Friday 20th April: Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Tickets are available right here.

On October 13th, Marillion release an EP on earMusic featuring a live version of their epic 'Living In F E A R'. It comes in a limited CD Digipak as well as in a limited and numbered 12" Vinyl Edition, which includes three additional unreleased live songs.







NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.
