Dear h, thank you for a fantastic evening in Rhede. I was blown away by the fact that you played Message to my girl by Split Enz. It’s one my favourite songs. As I told you, I wanted to email you on Sunday and request it, because I thought you could totally pull it off and do a better job than Neil Finn. However, I forgot to email you. So, you can imagine my surprise when I heard the first notes of the song. Especially since I don’t recall you ever playing it before! So thank you, thank you, thank you! x Please, pretty please, play it again in Uden on Saturday.
PS Hope you like the gifts. They’re handmade (by me) and one of a kind. There’s a story behind all of them. I named yours ‘the two sides of mr h’, representing your shiny polished stage presence and the private mr h with multiple layers.
See you on Saturday!
Good evening sweetheart,
Where can I buy the complete edition of the invisible man diaries ?
I don't find it and it sold out anywhere.. It will be a perfect gift for Christmas !

(Ps: Thanks to sign my concert ticket !)
I´m an infectious diseases specialist from Argentina. AIDS is still a big problem around the world were people are getting infected. The last years, the ages of people newly infected lowered down to 20-35 years.
I´m listening to your music forever and so I would suggest that HIV deserves a song. Maybe there´s something about it in "The Univited Guest" but I think people need a clearer message to get aware of this big problem, of which, shamefully, there´s still no much talk.
This is what Charlize Teron said in a recent speech in an AIDS Meeting:
"We have all we need to prevent the spreading of AIDS, so, why dont we stop this epidemic?
It´s said that is too expensive, too stigmatized, too politicized. AIDS is not only sexually transmitted. It´s transmitted by racism, sexism, homophobia, poverty and ignorance. HIV dont discriminate, we do. We value more the whites than the blacks, the men than the women, heterosexual love than homosexual love, the rich than the poor.
To end AIDS, first we have to get cured of all this other things"
Thanks a lot for you music
Many,many H Natural shows...I can't go on any of them. I'm listening your new song on iamthemorning video. .........maybe you know the words to tell you what I feel in this moment,because you know words I don't know,sounds I've never heard before and colours in your eyes I don't know where they came from. Thank you for the wonderful year.Maybe I can see you next year.Have a happy Christmas and a beautiful new year.
Tiau meu amigo,My Eternal Love!
Great gig on Friday in Liverpool, I thought you're voice was on point. Would love to see you and the rest of the band in the new year in the philly, but I get quite scared in big crowds. This is due to me being in a massive crash with a HGV on the m6 and being trapped for a while. Hopping with more counselling I will be able to see the band. Hope you and the family have a amazing Xmas
Myself and my daughter Helena saw you in Liverpool last Friday. The show as always was amazing .... Nothing to declare was awesome and I thought your words around Donald Campbell we’re inspiring and moving.
Looking forward to Madrid on Thursday.... a great birthday present .... any chance you could play White Paper and say hello to my partner Rachel who will be with me and absolutely loves your music
All the best
Superb performance in Liverpool on Friday night. Thank you for squeezing Liverpool in, Christmas doesn't begin until we have had a visit from your good self.
A solution to the question issue, could be to get people to write the questions down on a piece of paper, and you could draw them out of a hat at your leisure, saying "ooo heres a question from John from Kirkby, wheres John ??" John raises his hand shouts "here !!"
"ok it says, if you could go back to any point in time and witness it for yourself, where would you go to?"
An interview type thing with Mike, would be nice, but I do prefer the way the questions sometimes blindside you, and can take the evening in a completely different direction.
Have yourself a very merry Christmas, and I shall see you in April, got front and central for the Philharmonic, so can't wait for that
Just a note to let you know how much I am enjoying your Invisible Man Diaries. Your humor, wit, and insight is just the thing I need right now. Going through some unexpected medical issues and worries, and your music and musings are keeping me grounded and sane. It means more than you could know. Very much looking forward to seeing you and the boys again in February in St. Charles Illinois. It's an incredible luxury for us to have you in the States. All the best for your h Natural shows and a very happy holiday to you.
Hi Steve. So looking forward to seeing you solo in Liverpool tomorrow evening. Just watching your Friends, Romans DVD as a warm-up!! My god Seasons End!! Any chance you can fit that on to your setlist tomorrow??
Love and baubles Roger x
Thank you for this great gig last Saturday: you brought the light in Stockholm's night. I was very pleased to listen to your version of "Hurt" (for the first time in live) which is strong and brilliant. I can imagine that you could do with "Into My Arms"... I'm not a Nick Cave's purist (the truth is that I have discovered him recently) but I like some of his lyrics and these ones in particular (I think you that you understand why). Anyway, no pressure: if you don't feel it, don't do it! I will be just very (very!) happy to see you in Spain.
So see you next week.
Hello Mr H,
What a wonderful year its been and we have managed to see the band 3 times this year. Sadly not your solo gigs. I was wondering if you have thought about a solo gig in Jersey, Channel Islands.. we have the Jersey Opera House which is a lovely venue.. Much love to you and have a wonderful Christmas. See you in Brighton next year. x Adele from Jersey x
I'm coming to the show in Paris 10th December at "La Maroquinerie" and looking forward to.
I Wonder if you would consider adding a particular song in the set : "Nothing to declare" a truly soulful and sensitive song of your 1st solo album that gives goosebumps everytime I heart it. and a song about "Leavers" before its time !! :=) thanks very much Steve and see you in Paris. x
I was looking for relatives and family and found your name and the band Marillion. Love the music and now I get a chance to see you guys in Stockholm. Really looking forward to the 25th of November.
All the best
Some years ago You probably read Eckhart, on one album You wrote "thanks to Eckhart". It is very interesting, I read him too. Not because You read, I forgot about
Yours. This is like just saying "hallo", a little more... P. S. I love music of "Placebo" now, just "Placebo", only "Placebo", "Placebo" forever :-) Greetings.
Morning Mr h!
What I was trying to bumble on about last night was...
We've had an amazing year following Marillion. We've somehow managed to get to 17 gigs this year, in new venues, new countries, and all have been amazing in different ways. I'm a very lucky girl and thank my other half, Mike, from the bottom of my heart for making it happen...
Your words and music mean so much and have been part of my life for over 26 years (where did they go..?!). It is an absolute privilege to be able to travel to see the shows which just seem to get better and better. After all this time I still get blown away by your voice - it's incredible watching you do what you do. People who "aren't in the know" ask why we go to see so many gigs, or if we get bored seeing the same thing over again. The best way we can attempt to describe it is it's like following your favourite team. Only we never come away disappointed...
So many highlights: "The Leavers" live (goosebumps every time!), lighting up Leicester during "Go", the venue at Plovdiv, the set-list for Paris, spending time with the Family, the whole vibe at of Manchester last night, you making my daughter Jess' day when posing for a photo, and then there was the RAH... still buzzing and tingling at that one. What an emotional experience..
So, thanks... It's been amazing to say the least! It's strange feeling sad that the gigs are over for this year (the mind-numbing come-down..), but we do need a rest!
Enjoy the break if you're getting one and we'll see you on day 1 of the advent calendar.
Loads of love,
x x x
