New Marillion live releases

From the band:

"Hello all!

A quick word from the Racket Office team before we depart for the biggest & hopefully the best ever Marillion Convention at Centre Parcs in sunny Holland.

As we are about to jump on the bus, there's just time to let you in on some exciting new releases which we will be selling at the weekend ....read on for more!

The first is a 2 Disc 3 concert live DVD - filmed at the 2007 Convention titled
'This Strange Convention'. It features the whole of 'This Strange Engine' performed live, plus the Saturday and Sunday nights as released on the live CD's 'Friends' and 'Family'. You can check out a couple of the songs at www.youtube.com/marilliononline and get a glimpse of some of the delights awaiting you on 'This Strange Convention' ...enjoy!

Second is the first new Racket Records Live CD since 2007:
'Happiness is Cologne' is a 2CD live album from the band's 2008 Happiness is the Road performance at the E-Werk in Cologne. This concert has been beautifully mixed & mastered to a high quality & serves as a fantastic document to what has proved to be a hugely successful tour."

Pretty cool and crafty how they have survived by self-supporting themselves via the internet and pre-CD sales!
'Marbles' and 'Season's End' were both great shows! As I was there!
