I'm appreciating both versions of Marillion now. Why did Fish leave the group?
I can't believe that nobody's contributed to this thread since January. Did nobody in North America go and see the recent tour?
Hell ya!!! 2nd night at Irving Plaza NY
Going into the show I was hoping they would play more older tunes.
What we got was a mix from just about every album.
Great show and the crowd and band were very happy all night. They had to share the keyboards for the encore as H's broke.
Splintering Heart (great opener) Slainte Mhath, Afraid of Sunlight. The Great Escape and never expected Cannibal Surfer Babe Neverland and This Strange Engine highlights

Script for a Jester's Tear (1983)
i only have the above-Script is very good and i am not yet too familiar with fugazi to offer an opinion.
I do love the early Marillion and could never get into them after Fish left, just not really bothered but Fish is excellent and still touring.
Cleaned up the thread too and fixed videos
The Christmas gigs last year were probably the best that they've ever done.
A good mix of material (surprisingly nothing from "Brave", "Radiation", "marillion.com", "Anoraknophobia", "Marbles" or "Somewhere Else") which included a reappearance after a long, long time of "Warm Wet Circles" in the main set. The first encore was covers of "The Christmas Song" and "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" followed by "Slainte Mhath", the second encore "The Release" and "Garden Party". Fish-era material has not, with odd exceptions, been featured in the sets since the "Brave" tour in 1994.
The Forum gig, in London, was recorded and made available on CD immediately afterwards and via the Abbey Road Live Here Now site (Live Here Now).
As h said, with a wink, at the start of the second encore, "Dance, you bastards"!
