"I was trying to get infos on google about a Marillion setlist of 1987 when I ran into your website. I was surprised to find out the gig at Fanfula Pub in Milan we set up with Fish and Pete in May 14th 1987. Actually Pete was on piano on tracks 06, 07, 08, 09, 10 and on bass on the other songs while I was playing piano. The first photos have been taken at the restaurant La Tana del Lupo (Wolf's Den) in Milano and the last photo in Fanfula Pub." Thanks to Roberto Cangioli

"I'm one of the witnesses of the Milano night, I'm the chief editor of Paperlate Magazine and one of the founder members of the Marillion italian fan club, together with Roberto Cangioli. Roberto played piano that night and Fish still remembers it (Fish was in Italy one week ago and we spoke about the Fanfula gig ). Fish named Roberto "the piano player. I'm the boy in the photo No.7 (behind Fish) and No. 8 with the microphone in my hand (the girl with the pink dress is my wife!)." Thanks to Ezio Candrini

SUPPORT BAND: Donner Party

"The opening act for Marillion's date at First Avenue was a local group called Donner Party. They were typical of the time, sort of indie rock with violin and a female vocalist and they didn't go over that well. I did think at this point Marillion were going through the motions somewhat, the band just seemed to run through the set and as good as it was, it was far polished compared to the early days which was to expected I suppose."

16.10.1987 - 23 East - Ardmore, PA, USA (cancelled show, date unconfirmed)
"I had a ticket for this tour. I returned it - should of kept it. I only got back half of what I paid for it: surcharges, taxes etc. It might have been worth something to some one. I'm thinking the date was 16.10.1987. Might have been the last show of the US tour, they left early. I thought at the time there was issues of them getting into the US from Canada, Fish had pot or something. I think they played NY the next show. Doesn't work with the dates listed.

Marillion was suppose to open for Rush in 1986. I bought my tickets. It was changed to b.o.c., I didn't go. I did get to see them the first US date with Steve H. I saw them at a club, the guy at the table next to me saw them at Wembley the week before."
