29th May 2020 - A Lockdown Audience With Marillion
We hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well.
Things are easing up a little here in the UK (as long as we are all good and responsible boys and girls) and the sun has been shining which always makes things better.
We have been able to spend some time making a little bit of noise at the Racket Club with Mike Hunter coordinating control room exclusion zones.
It has been great to spend time in each other's company again, and good to have a sense of purpose after a few weeks feeling adrift.
But we are effectively still locked down and looking after our health, even if the sanity is still a little questionable.
So for band meetings our cat-herding manager Lucy is calling us regularly on Zoom and she thought it would be fun to let you see part of the virtual get together we had on Tuesday.
We’ll spare you the boring bits and skip straight to the light-hearted part when Lucy asked us a series of questions on your behalf.
Think of it as a Marillion Weekend 'Audience with Marillion' without the audience.
And with none of us in the same room.
And no bar.
You get the idea.
We’re putting this exclusive 26 minute clip onto The Space, our official Video On Demand channel, as we’d love for you all to have a chance to look around the growing collection of concert film, documentary and other content that’s available there to buy, rent or enjoy as part of a great value subscription.
It will be free to view for the next seven days and will then be archived on the channel for our growing band of supporters forever!
You won’t need to sign up to watch this content whilst it’s available to view for free, but if you do decide to subscribe then you will enjoy a free 7 day trial period and we will thank you from the bottom of our locked-down hearts for supporting this exciting project.
So, if you want to hear a little bit about how the new album is progressing and, amongst other revelations, discover which band member each of the others would prefer to be quarantined with, then go here - bit.ly/marillionlockdownzoom
And next Friday we’ll be releasing some more fun for all The Space subscribers as a massive thank you for your support.
Watch this (err…) SPACE and our other social media channels…
Stay safe inmates,
h, Ian, Mark, Pete and Steve
