___________________  Steve Rothery Scandinavian Fan Club Show  _____________________

___________________ ' European Tour (Stage Two) - 2nd Leg ' _____________________

(The second leg of "Stage Two" of Marillion's European Tour finished with multiple stops in France, Italy, and Spain. Two-night occupancies were featured at most stops.  These shows featured different setlists each night.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once again, the bi-annual Marillion Weekends took place over three separate events on two continents.   The Holland Weekend followed a similar format to that of past Weekends.  It was an all-inclusive affair and featured accommodations, meals, and events throughout.  The Montréaland UK weekends were slightly smaller in scale.  Both the Holland and Montréal Weekends featured the popular "Swap The Band" event (a first for Canada).  All Weekends included full-length Marillion concerts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.  Each Weekend's Friday featured a performance of the Radiation album in its entirety, along with a lengthy "encore" set.  On December 11th, The Saturday show featured the classic Brave album played in its entirety for the first time in over a decade.  The performance was a recreation of the '94 Brave tour complete with slides, props and costuming.  The Sunday set is was a mix of new songs and old favorites.  Emphasis was placed on the latest Sounds That Can't Be Made material, but also featured classics such as "Garden Party".

Breaking tradition with the past, this time it was the UK Weekend filmed by Toward Infinity for a future HD Blu-Ray/DVD release.

The April 12th (Friday) Wolverhampton set was a record setter!  The show was filmed, recorded and mixed "on the fly", manufactured, packaged, and available for sale 10 hours and 31 minutes after the beginning of the show.  This is a new Guinness World Record for the quickest turnaround for a live concert film from performance to chart-eligible release.  This was made possible via the combined efforts of Toward Infinity and Abbey Road Studios LiveHereNow.  The resulting package "Clocks Already Ticking" is a 2-DVD / 3-CD deluxe package that contains the complete concert in both DVD (video) and CD (audio) formats.  Available now from Racket Records.
