A Look Inside Marillion's 2018 F.E.A.R. Tour

Marillion are prog-rock legends. The Brits have been around since 1979 and have managed to keep a following of fans both old and new. The Neo prog-rockers released their last album, F.E.A.R., in 2016 to high critical acclaim. They're currently on tour in support of that album, in Europe to be exact, and the dynamic setlists have been a whopping 19-songs long, with two encores, making it just as majestic as the performance itself.
Cut between two different sets, the wall of sound is undeniable. With swift soundscapes and textured synths, fans are in for a long, wild ride, which is obviously worth it since the gigs are almost always sold out.
We're dissecting the complicated setlists so you can see how the neo-prog pioneers are still crushing minds all these years later.
How long are the setlists?
Around 19 songs, cut between two sets, and one encore.
What does the first set start with and the second place?
The first set starts off with "The Leavers" series and the second set is all "El Dorado."
What do they perform for the encore?
They perform two encore songs: "Cover My Eyes (Pain and Heaven)," and "Neverland."
What album do they play off the most?
Definitely F.E.A.R., but they also include cuts off several other albums like Brave and Afraid of Sunlight.
What's the production like?
Except a very cool light show that includes LASER BEAMS! Oh and maybe a burst of confetti during a sonic climax.
What does a full setlist look like?
When does the tour wrap up?
They only have two dates left! They wrap up this Saturday in Budapest. But in 2019 they will tour the UK with an orchestra! Check out those dates below.
