The Marillion Weekend 2017 – Chile will take place over 3 nights at the historical Teatro Caupolican, Santiago.
The concerts will feature a different show every night and will be based around the concerts that are taking place at the Marillion Weekend 2017 - Netherlands .
The Chile convention will feature Swap The Band, a competition to have your photo taken on stage with the band and a Question and Answer session with the band.
(Please note we will not be providing any accommodation for attendees).
We also plan to get some great support bands along so it WILL be 3 solid nights of great musical entertainment!
On the first night we will be performing the marillion.com album in it's entirety and we have some fantastic song choices for the Saturday and Sunday nights.
If you are attending ANY of the four Marillion Weekends we would very much like you to send us a passport size photograph of yourself to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 12th and you *might* just be part of the show.
Please email a digital photo only in .jpg format. By sending us your photo, you agree to grant us a royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to publish and otherwise use the material in any way that we want, and in any media worldwide. We cannot guarantee that all pictures will be used.
Friday night will feature a performance in full of the marillion.com album.
Are surprise nights!
As in previous conventions the set-list will be revealed on the night and is sure to delight...
Here it is - the chance you've all been waiting for! We are pleased to announce Swap The Band If you don't know what we're talking about then here is a short explanation.
Basically if you can play any of the instruments that Marillion play, or you can sing - now is your chance to get up on stage and show us. We 'swap out' a member of the band - let's say Steve Rothery - and you take his place and play a Marillion song along with the rest of the band.
We take it in turns swapping out each member. We have done this at conventions in the past and it was also brilliant fun for the band and the fans!
If you want to be considered you have until 1 January 2017 to email an MP3 (or send a You Tube link) of you playing your chosen instrument or singing a song. It doesn't have to be a Marillion cover, it's just for us to gauge how good you are.
We will then all sit down and choose some people after this date and we'll be in touch with the lucky winners.
You must already have your tickets for the conventions if you want to take part.
If chosen we'll be in touch and tell you what you'll have to do and discuss the song choices we have for you - but you have to keep it all a secret otherwise it spoils the surprise!
Please send your MP3 or You Tube link to email@example.com along with your name, gender and age.
Many thanks and good luck!
