No, it certainly isn't quite Christmas yet, but it certainly feels that way - thanks to everyone who has already visited our auctions on Ebay to Benefit the Hurricane Katrina relief fund and your outstanding generosity.
We've just added a load more items, but this will be the last lot, so if you're interested in picking up a piece of Marillion history, head over to: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZlucy25170QQhtZ-1
Now that the loft is cleared out, we've been able to make room to start setting up for rehearsals for the 'Not Quite Christmas Tour' this November and December. We've decided to go back once again to the Aylesbury Civic for a warm-up show before starting the tour proper. Tickets for all shows, and the full list of dates (including a visit to Luxembourg for the first time in 8 years!) are all available at www.marillion.com/tour
And this Friday we'll be celebrating Christmas early as we take the cover photo for out annual Web Christmas CD - this year's offering is a special live acoustic radio session of 'Los Trios Marillos' recorded at the XM Radio studio in Washington, DC this past June; PLUS our own seasonal re-recording of Marbles I to IV. All current Web fan club members will get this CD for free later this year - for more details of how to join The Web in your country, and more information about the Web Christmas CDs visit www.marillion.com/web
