New to the forum, so it seems the polite thing to do to introduce myself. Big fan of Marillion back in the Fish era, saw them on the Real to Reel and Misplaced Childhood tours. Gutted when the big man left, but quite liked Seasons End and Holidays in Eden, saw them on both tours. Saw Fish on Internal Exile and a subsequent tour (Suits/Songs from the Mirror?). Life got busy and I moved on a bit musically. Also a bit disappointed that such an excellent songwriter released a covers album.
Long story short, took my son away camping this year and for some reason listened to Misplaced Childhood for the first time in ages. Forgot quite how good the music was. Back with a bang now.
Thought I’d missed the chance to see him live but bought a ticket for Islington today. Looking forward to it already.
