Marillion at Colston Hall on Tuesday 17th April 2018Posted on: 13 Apr 2018
Prog-rock band Marillion will play Bristol's Colston Hall on Tuesday 17th April 2018.
Deftly combining a particularly distinctive sound which combines experimental rock infused with evocative instrumentation and politically-charged lyrics, the group has released 18 albums over 38 years.
Regularly hailed and revered for defying musical expectations and pigeon-holing, their musical approach and sound might be hard to pin down - arguably making them one of the more intriguing, unpredictable bands on the scene - but that hasn't stopped them being compared to the not-inconsiderable likes of Talk Talk, Van der Graaf Generator and Pink Floyd.
After nearly 40 years in the industry you might be forgiven for thinking the members of Marillion might start applying the brakes and looking forward to their twilight pension years. Not a chance, with the recent release of their latest album re-establishing their position as pioneers of the prog-rock scene and being hailed as their best in 20 years.
Ticket prices range from £32.25 to £37.62 (incl. booking fee) and can be purchased here.
Colston Hall is located at Colston Street, Bristol, BS1 5AR
