Marillion To Join Mott The Hoople On UK Tour

Mott The Hoople are pleased to announce that progressive rock legends Marillion will be the special guests for The O2 London show on their November 2013 UK tour.

Formed in 1969, Mott The Hoople went on to become one of the best loved and most influential rock groups of all time. Their string of hits started with the David Bowie-penned ‘All The Young Dudes’, after which the band’s legend was written with original classics such as ‘All the Way From Memphis’, ‘Roll Away The Stone’, ‘Saturday Gigs’ and ‘The Golden Age Of Rock N Roll’.

The band, whose fame was established initially by their incandescent live shows, reformed to celebrate their legacy in 2009, which saw them play a series of critically and commercially successful live dates to mark their 40th anniversary. The gigs, including a 5-night, sold-out stint at London’s Hammersmith Apollo, were the first time the original lineup had played together in over 35 years, and brought a tear to many a fan’s eye. The universally lavish praise for them included a 5/5 Daily Telegraph review that declared ‘Mott The Hoople storm back to London for a dazzling night at the Hammersmith Apollo.’

The band will be returning to the UK in November 2013 for five dates only:

Mon 11th Nov Birmingham Symphony Hall
Wed 13th Nov Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
Sat 16th Nov Newcastle City Hall
Sun 17th Nov Manchester O2 Apollo
Mon 18th Nov London The O2

The shows will feature original members Verden Allen (keyboards/vocals), Ian Hunter (vocals/guitar / piano), Mick Ralphs (guitar/vocals) and Overend Watts (bass/vocals). Due to ill health, original drummer Dale Griffin will be substituted by Martin Chambers (The Pretenders).

All tickets are priced £40, except London, which is £45 ‘ subject to booking fee and available through www.aeglive.co.uk
