Don Julio is waiting for you Best wishes and Kindest regards
Happy Spring to you and your fam
I just watched the youtube of "The Space" from RAH video - brilliant!! Someone commented that their goosebumps have goosebumps - I totally agree. WOW
I had stopped by to say hi, and since it's spring now (allegedly - it's still rather wintry feeling in Buffalo although the snow is slowly melting away) I thought I would submit a request for you, for h natural consideration - I'd love to hear you cover Mark Hollis' "The Colour of Spring" from his solo album. I think you would sound brilliant on that.
Love and handstands,
Stopping in to say hello, so Hello beloved h! I'm so looking forward to receiving the Royal Albert Hall gig in my mail box. For the viewing, Champagne, Tiara and Gown are an appropriate choice, yes? Or maybe just my pj's and Bourbon...
Anyway, love you lots and hope to see you and the band one day, somewhere, in 2019.
Much love, joy and kindness sent your way, superstar.
Still remembering Barbarossahoehle last December (thanks again for the Tequila -> Proscht! and the English lesson -> C-L-E-F Clef) I'm looking very much forward to spring and Marillion's UK tour.
I'll be in Cambridge although I have a now view seat. But I'm sure it will become a beautiful experience to just listen and even more carefully to your soul-touching songs and for sure to wake up in music in a literal sense.
A propos beautiful; At the cave you said you are a big fan of Mexico. My birthday is on El Dia de los Muertos and I like it a lot how Mexican people think about and deal with death, dancing and singing, colorful celebrating. So as a true autumn and Scorpio child I'd just love it to listen to Beautiful and with my eyes closed behind that pillar at Cambridge's Corn Exchange.
See you soon in Cambridge and Brighton! Take care!
Hi Steve Just received Brave deluxe edition yesterday.Absolutely fantastic as always. Bill and I are both BritS we are always happy when we can get to see you all over here.Loved your gig at the Town ballroom in Buffalo,we just hop over the border from Canada.
Hope to see you all again soon.
Pieter was faster than me … I attended the Barbarossahoehle and Uden shows in December and they were really incredible … Please do consider releasing all the h natural December shows … I know that Phil recorded Barbarossahoehle precautionally …
A letter to H
Thank You for your messages, I also like to read them
it took a while to calm my senses after the cruise, try to focus again ... and here is the next surprise! :-D, I can not wait to see You !
it was also very cold and windy at my place, -15 at night and -12 a day, my hundred-year-old house could not warm up and I thought that the heating would explode! ;-) the gulf of gdansk (just in front of my House) froze completely, I do not remember such cold days, I wanted to see you in birmingham, my friend's friend lives there but all tickets are sold out, I have to be patient and wait a few more weeks, trying to guess which cities you choose ? I Am just listening to At last by Etta James, such beautiful..
Greetings! It was a great show you and the band played in Buffalo in mid-February - great setlist and great energy and performances throughout. Invisible Man and This Strange Engine stand out (possibly because they were the encores) and all the material from F.E.A.R. was amazing - the poignantly timed Living in FEAR, and the story before the Leavers of the funeral home chain in our area (Amigone) - Seasons End was well done and fits right in (unfortunately) in the timely material end as the problems of global warming and climate change continue with absolutely no positive response from our current President here in the US. You have always written timely music that matters, going all the way back to Seasons End - it was a nice touch to dedicate Easter to all those still seeking peace in our war-torn world. So, having seen this show, my first Marillion show since 2005 (unfortunately - that lapse won't happen again if I can help it!) it brought a lot of things full circle for me, having been an avid fan of yours and of Marillion all these years. And our conversation post-gig, well, it was a special moment that occurred that I will always cherish, as I believe something spiritual was definitely channeled "Give Up the Hope of a Better Past - Only Love will make you Free" As much as you are a brilliant musician and singer and writer I believe that your work is beyond music - you are a healer and a channel for something that is directly spiritual. You understand and empathize in ways that are rare even among artists. It shows in your work. So I know you will keep on making beautiful music. Thank you. On a personal request note - I do hope that sometime in the future that you and Richard Barbieri will collab again - NTWBTH and Arc Light are uniquely brilliant - with sweet, dark atmospheres and sensuous grooves. Anyway, Sir - my rambling is about done per the character count - have fun trying out compressors and all. One love - peace.
Thank you so much for the US shows! My husband introduced your music to me for the first time at the Atlanta concert and though his kidney stone decided to move in the middle of the show, we stayed until the end. I left that show floating on a cloud. We're catching up with everything you've sung on ever since.. I've never ever been so enamored of a voice before. Just sublime. Thank you so much for your gorgeous lyrics and sharing your voice with us. <3 I've particularly fallen in love with the song Dry Land. Can't get it out of my head, nor would I want to. Much love to you and yours. Stay warm!
Greetings from Illinois, USA! It was my first time seeing Marillion and I was completely blown away. I had won tickets to your gig in St. Charles, Illinois. Sadly I had to attend alone. My Belgian husband first introduced me to your music as he is a longtime fan. I always felt your music was brilliant when I would hear him play it in the house but felt I had to be in a particular mood and mindframe to truly feel and appreciate the depth and passion in your (sorry for such an odd connotation but I would refer to it as “wrist cutting music”). After 8 years I finally reached the point where my heart and soul could handle the intenseness of your music. I could finally relate and feel the passion, pain and sadness especially in the song Splintering Heart. My heart was torn apart as I had to part with my husband of 8 years to go back to the US to care for my elderly parents. I cannot even begin to explain how your music has soothed my broken heart and soul. Thank you, please keep touring and carrying on, need to see you in St. Charles, Illinois again or perhaps Europe someday with my husband... Thank you for your music.
My name is Richard Simon and I have to say you and the band are the best that feeds my soul and I greatly appreciate your talent. your voice is so comfortingly unique and spell binding and that's why I ask if you could contact me via yahoo because I would like to have you view a song I wrote only you can deliver expertly Called "Lovers Moon" I posted it on Facebook and people love it and agreed you should do it...if you love it, like it it's yours for next to nothing and I mean next to nothing lol... I just want you to do this cause it says Marillion style all over it. I wrote the song and I own it entirely. people on Facebook really love it, you should see the responses I got from the post. The music and lyric's hit me hard inside my head and I wrote it down as quickly as possible. I'm taking it as a sign this is meant for you to do this. sadly if you're not interested I'll have to take a chance with another which will kill me cause I really think this is for you. Thank you for your time, my best to you all, Love you all be safe on your travels. R. simon
Absolutely fantastic show in Buffalo. At end of Strg Engine, the band all ran off stage quite quick whilst Pete thanked all. Is that planned? A few others i talked to after also mentioned that they noticed that. Just wanted make sure all was good and maybe we were just nuts and over analyzing as usual:)
It took me a few days to come down from the show. Enjoyed it so much and always worry whether it will be the last one. In life you just never know. Wish I could do it all over again. I really love Buffalo so it was extra special for me. See you in Montreal should the next weekend be there.
Please stay safe and thank you for the life long memories!!
what a crazy few days, my office closed on Thursday afternoon because of the snow so I’ve been on shoreleave back to work tomorrow
the last time I saw snow like that was when I went to see Marillion in Paris on the Sounds That Can’t Be Made tour (it was late January) I haven’t seen Marillion live since so I am eagerly looking forward to the Bristol Colston Hall gig in April - I haven’t heard FEAR live yet although I have the Ultimate Edition boxset which is fantastic.
I’m listening to the new Laurie Anderson album at the moment which is great.
