Took a trip with my wife, and a few long time friends to Montreal for the Marillion Weekend Canada. Every so often, the band Marillion will host ‘weekends’ where they play multiple nights. This was a 3 night show with different set lists each night Fans travel from all over the globe to attend and enjoy some great music by one of the best underrated bands. Marillion were founded in 1979 in England, and had a few hits in the United States (‘Kayleigh’ being there biggest hit). They are still going strong and putting out new albums. The Weekends are kind of a celebration for the fans, and it did not disappoint. This was the 1st weekend I have attended and looking forward to attending another one in the future.
Besides 3 nights of music, and a Q&A Session with the band, we got to explore the city of Montreal. I really enjoyed walking around and seeing the culture of the city. We saw the old port where you can get a ferry, McGill University, and the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal. We enjoyed great company (met up with a long time friend who happen to live in the area for great company, food and drinks before the shows)
I would like to thank Marillion (Steve Hogarth, Steve Rothery, Mark Kelly, Pete Trewavas, and Ian Mosley) as well as their manager Lucy Jordache for organizing the weekend. A great time was ha by all.
Have some big weekends coming up. Have a graduation party on Saturday, and then will be attending the Philly Non-Sports Show on Sunday. Then its time to for the Survivor 44 Finale on Wednesday, (Have never missed a finale, going back to when Bryant Gumbel was the host.). After that, we go into the 3 Day Memorial Day Weekend and the official start of Summer
Will find the time write more and cover everything
PS – Nice back to back wins for the Mets against the Rays. Maybe this is the jumpstart they need to start playing better ball going forward.
