2015

 

 

 

Once again, the bi-annual Marillion Weekend took place over three separate events on two continents.   The venues were the same as the 2013 Weekend.  All Weekends included full-length Marillion concerts on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights.  Each Weekend's Friday concert featured a performance of the Anoraknophobia album in its entirety, along with a lengthy "encore" set.  The Saturday featured album was the classic Marbles album in its entirety.  The Sunday sets were a theme consisting of all Marillion's singles from "Market Square Heroes" through "Power".  The popular "Swap the Band" feature took place in both Holland and Montréal.  A new multimedia stage presentation complete with video and enhanced lighting effects was used at all events.
