A word from the photographer
ON THIS NIGHT: Marillion
Anyone who is a fan of Marillion is most likely a fan for life. They have one of the largest cult followings of any band out there. I had heard of them when they had a hit with the song “Kayleigh” in the mid 80’s, at that time they were fronted by original lead singer, Fish. In 1988, Fish departed for a solo career and the band brought in a new vocalist, Steve Hogarth, who is still with the band to this day. This concert was during the “Holidays In Eden” tour in Boulder, Colorado in April of 1992.
During this time, I was the house photographer at the Fox Theater in Boulder, a new concert venue that quickly became known as one of the best concert venues in Colorado with a capacity of approx. 800 people. National acts came thru regularly, international acts as well, Marillion being one of the first international acts to play there. The diehard fans came out in droves, selling out the venue quickly. With no “photo pit” I had to secure my position in front of the stage prior to the doors opening for the show, as this was a general admission show, no seating.
Shooting major acts in a small venue is always a treat as you can shoot in a very intimate setting, close too. The band came on to an enormous welcome and I was in the photographer zone right away. Most of the shows at the Fox Theater did not use a follow spotlight, tonight the production included one, awesome for shooting “non” flash. I shot some 36 images, one roll of film, and relocated from the front to a side angle, still close, eventually finishing from a VIP balcony section dead center which gave me great full stage shots with nice lighting images as seen here, one of my favorite, most colorful shots.
Marillion won the fans over with truly amazing musicianship as always, as well as a nice mix of Fish era songs with Steve Hogarth era songs from the first two albums he had sung on to this point. I am rarely shooting within a more friendly and passionate crowd than a Marillion crowd, great fans who truly LOVE the music. Every fan in the venue this night, were focused on the band and the music, something that seems to be less and less common at concerts in general.
