Mark has very kindly agreed to do a little DeeExpus Q&A next weekend (16th/17th February) for us, so anyone who would like to know anything with regards to his involvement with the band, his dietary preferences or his penchant for tinkling ivories … please post your questions here and he’ll answer them from his Ranch in the Deep South.
We are absolutely thrilled to be announced as support act for Marillion weekend 2013.
DeeExpus open proceedings on Friday 8th March at Marillion’s now infamous, not to mention SOLD OUT, Weekend in Port Zelande, Holland, at the start of an absolutely brilliant 3 days of all things Marillion.
Andy writes: “In 2011, having never seen them live before, I decided to attend my first Marillion Weekend in Holland. As a lifelong fan of their music, to have 3 concerts back to back spanning 3 consecutive nights, married with a couple of days debauchery seemed like a fine baptism to me. I wasn’t wrong; what a brilliant, BRILLIANT weekend and I left vowing to come to the next.
Ironically, I’d actually already spoken to Mark (Kelly) prior to this weekend about guesting on The King and after bumping into him at the venue and him not having the faintest idea who the hell I was, I think I’d fairly much written off the idea of him ever playing on the album …
… and here we are.
I absolutely cant wait for this weekend, it really is a superb experience and am totally over the moon to be playing a part in it.”
