Marilion bring their tour to the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo
Marilion bring their tour to a close at the Hammersmith Eventim Apollo
with style and a sense of community spirit.
Marillion rounded of their select ten date tour with an exhilarating show in London and did not disappoint with their thrashing guitars and back catalogue of song writing and raising the roof of the Eventim Apollo!
Marillion originally formed in Aylesbury in 1979 and emerged from the post Punk scene in Britain and existed as style between punk Rock and classic progressive rock. Their studio output consists of nineteen albums and highly regarded in two eras!
After such a long break it was to no surprise the band hit the road with this tour, crowed funded by the fans as no insurance broker would pay for the tour if it had to be cancelled again. The atmosphere at the Apollo tonight was with a sense of community spirit as Steve Hogarth interacted with the fans after a low key stage entry to the restrained guitars of this unusual opener ‘ Sounds’ that can’t be Made’.
A change in vibrancy followed the songs ‘King ‘, and ‘Easter’ which is clearly a fan favourite.
‘The Light of the End of The Tunnel Tour’, clearly showcased the newer material half way through the show.
The set closes with a version of Neverland which is show stopping and washes across the crowd like a tsunami with Hogarth’s distinctive Vocals and Steve Rothery’s dancable guitar strings, with the five thousand strong audience clapping in tandem to this well-deserved show. With the confetti raining down, brings the whole affair to an exhilarating close with Hogarth’s words, ‘We are all one together’!
