Steve Hogarth in Oxford – Night One

Fri 20 December 19:30 - 22:30

Steve solo for Christmas!

Lead singer and lyricist for Marillion since 1989, Steve explains his solo show:

“It’s liberating to occasionally escape the discipline of Marillion’s heavily-programmed music. It’s great to be able to expose the voice and the nuance of it, to be able to do anything in the moment, follow the energy of the audience, and know they can hear the words. When I sing with the band it’s like riding a monster – very exciting – but by necessity quite ‘nailed-down’ structurally-speaking and so working alone is a chance for intimacy, tenderness and spontaneity.. a more volatile and audience-influenced performance.”

“I play whatever I feel like playing during the show. I try to get a dialogue going with the audience so feel free to ask me a question or two. Don’t just ask me to play this song or that song, ASK me something! Having said that, I often play requests too. I play songs which, for whatever reason, have been significant in my life.”
