Marillion are running a unique competition for one lucky fan to win tickets to the whole of the band's upcoming Light At The End Of The Tunnel UK Tour. At the same time, the band will be first revealing the initials of the new album, due out early next year, and asking fans to guess the title before revealing it on Friday September 3.

“No, it isn’t a train coming the other way, it is in fact, The Light at the End of the Tunnel," exclaims Marillion singer Steve Hogarth. "We spent our time IN the tunnel writing our twentieth studio album.

"We will tour in the UK in November and debut one or two new tracks, along with what we feel is the best of our (let’s face it) huge catalogue. Our fans are legendary creatures of faith and enthusiasm - some say obsession - so we can’t wait for that feeling of reunification as we return from the wilderness, to the stage. The light is gonna feel good.”

The competition will run between from Tuesday August 31 until Friday September 3 on the band's website.
