The NYC one is on February 24th and will have Steve Rothery (guitar) and Pete Trewavas (bass) playing a CD of the album, and maybe a few live songs, at a nightclub (I think it's a secret.)
I won an invite in the random draw. I get to bring someone along. The wife does not consider this worth a babysitter. Mind you, this will be a bunch of 30 and 40-somethings, predominately male, listening to an album in a bar, so I can't say I don't see her viewpoint, but it's the new Marillion album, dammit! I get to hear it two months before it's out!
Anyway, if you think this might be a fun way to spend a Saturday night, reply back and I'll get you on the guestlist and give you the details. I already offered it to origamislayer but he's got theatre tickets that night.
