VETERAN band Marillion bring their brand of timeless rock to the area in June.

The group's Something Else tour stops off at The Junction on June 13.

Some thought the band would be unlikely to survive the departure of original lead singer Fish, who left the group after four albums in 1988.

But Marillion proved the critics wrong, as with replacement Steve Hogarth, they produced a further nine albums, while continuing to evolve their musical style.

And making full use of the internet, they have a unique relationship with their fans, who sponsor tours and fund albums.

Doors open at Marillion's Junction gig at 7pm, and tickets cost £20.
