2008 marks the 25th anniversary of the classic Marillion debut Script For A Jester's Tear. Founding member Mick Pointer will celebrate the occasion with a live performance of the entire album. After the successful "try out" in Swindon (UK) last January, the rest of Europe gets the opportunity to experience this unique event in April 2008!
Besides Mick, the band consists of Nick Barrett (Pendragon) on guitars, Mike Varty (Credo) on keyboards, Ian Salmon on bass and Brian Cummins (Genesis tribute band The Carpet Crawlers) on vocals. In addition to the entire Script album, the set list will contain the songs "Charting The Single," "Three Boats Down From The Candy," "Market Square Heroes," "Grendel" and "Margaret."
