Good news all around today - the new album 'Somewhere Else' has reached number 24 in the UK charts, 18 in Holland, and across all of Europe it's reaching higher than 'Marbles' did in 2004. We keep saying it, but we do mean it - thank you to all of you who have bought it, whoever you are!
But for our North American friends, the album is not officially out until 24th April. Even if you already have the import, 'Somewhere Else' would make a great gift for a friend! You can pre-order the album now at www.fye.com/marillion for $9.99 and you'll receive a free high-res download of "Most Toys" live from the Marillion Weekend 2007. While you're on the FYE website, you can also enter to win a guitar signed by all of the band and a goodie bag of Marillion swag!
Next, two bits of very important touring news:
Due to delays in completing works in the new 'Live Club', the Marillion gig initially scheduled at the Live Club on Friday 27 April has been moved to the Alcatraz in Milan (www.alcatrazmilano.com) Doors open 20.00 (8 pm), Show time 21.00 (9 pm) - Tickets already purchased are still valid.
This is also a reminder that the venue in Krakow for the Wednesday 23 May show has been moved from Hala Wisla to Klub Studio. Again, tickets already purchased are still valid.
If you have any questions about your ticket in either case, please contact the venue, store or website where you purchased your tickets. Links to all tour dates and updates venues are available at www.marillion.com/tour
