North American Tour 2016 Update

Hello crazy kids and curious grown-ups,

Mr H here. Greetings from Chicago! We have so far played three shows in the US - in San Francisco, L.A. and Denver. We hit the ground roaring in SF and had a terrific show. Los Angeles and Denver were similarly fabulous - the new songs are sounding and feeling great, and the audiences have been enthusiastic, respectful and supportive.

We’d like to thank everyone who has attended, or is attending the US and Canadian Marillion shows. We’re having a great time here. It’s even stopped raining in Chicago this morning!

While I’m at it, I’d like to announce a few extra-curricular h projects currently forthcoming:

First of all, I’ll be making an appearance for another collaboration with Swedish chamber-rock band Isildurs Bane at their annual IB Expo on November 26 in Halmstad on the West Coast of Sweden. (Yes, that’s Nov 26 THIS year!)

I did this one two years ago with Richard Barbieri and David Torn, and previous live collaborators have included Tony Levin, David
Rhodes (long term-members of Peter Gabriel’s core band) and Phil Manzanera (Roxy Music, David Gilmour) so there’s an illustrious pedigree. IB (and me) will be performing their forthcoming album “Off the Radar” much of which I have co-written and sung lead-vocals on.

It’s an exciting and interesting record and so a debut live performance complete with their chamber orchestra, will be quite an event.

More details of “Off the Radar” released early 2017, to follow.

Lastly, (while I’m hawking) I’d like to mention my traditional Christmas h-Natural concerts - this year in Oxford, Liverpool and DUBLIN (Hooray!) on Dec 16, 17 and 18. They’re small and intimate affairs and usually sell-out quite quickly, so don’t mess about :o]
