Marillion will plug tracks from their new album An Hour Before It’s Dark when they play at Sheffield City Hall on September 27, 2022.

The band said: “We are looking forward to our shows in September and we can’t wait to get out there and play the new album to the fans.”

Founded in 1979, Marillion bridged punk rock and classic progressive rock styles. They are best known for the 1985 singles Kayleigh and Lavender, recorded with singer Fish, which reached number two and number five respectively. Kayleigh also entered the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States.

Steve Hogarth was brought in to replace Fish following his departure to pursue a solo career. Under Steve’s tenure, Marillion’s biggest hit single was You’re Gone which charted at number seven.

Over the course of 20 studio albums, Marillion have become one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands.

Marillion embraced the internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience, long before most of their peers.

The band are renowned for incredible songwriting, melodies and top-notch musicianship, while swimming against the tide, not bending to norms and limitations.

Tickets for the gig in Sheffield cost £49.50 and £55.50. To book, go to www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
