(h returns for another 'Natural' one-man show.  These shows are very casual, featuring stripped-down versions of Marillion songs, some covers, and some stories, all with Steve behind the grand piano.)

 

___________________'Marillion Weekends 2011'_____________________

This year, the Marillion Weekends  were three separate events taking place on two continents.   The Netherlands Weekend followed a similar format to that of past Weekends.  This included full-length Marillion concerts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.  All Weekends will featured a performance of the Holidays In Eden album in its entirety on Friday night.  The 'theme' for the Saturday night shows was an "A to Z" set featuring a song beginning with each letter of the alphabet.  This marathon set included some rarely-played tracks as well as a Marillion/Led Zeppelin medley called "Zeparated Out'.  The Sunday shows were a collection of favorite tracks.

The Netherlands Weekend was once again filmed by Toward Infinity for a future release.  The Canada Weekend was not filmed.  Also, for the first time in Montreal, there was a "Swap the Band" event and a Q/A session with the band on Sunday afternoon.

By popular demand, a third Marillion Weekend was announced in late August 2010 by the band.  This was held at the fabulous art-deco "The Assembly" in Leamington Spa, England.  The U.K. Weekend was much the same as the Canada Weekend.  Only the three concerts were included.
