Double-Header with Silhouette

The Wings Unfurled Mini-Tour UK dates end up here.

Advance tickets are available from Bristol Ticket Shop.

Saturday 16th May 2015 - The Flying Duck, Glasgow

Also Eden have never played in Scotland before, and neither have Silhouette, so here goes!

Saturday 9th May 2015 - Prog The Castle, Heidelberg

The only UK band on the bill for the first run of this festival

We're delighted to have been invited over to Germany as the sole UK representatives at the first running of this international festival, in the amazing setting of Heidelberg Castle. Don't miss it!

Friday 8th May 2015 - Starsound, Utrecht, Nederland

Double-Header with Silhouette

We're off to Prog The Castle and it'd be silly not to stop off at Starsound in Utrecht, where the band last played three years ago, and where Rich often used to rehearse with Lords of the Backstage. Further info soon...

Judging by the initial response, I'd strongly recommending getting yourself an Advance Ticket.

Sunday 16th November 2014 - The Louisiana, Bristol

With special guests, Crimson Sky.

We've not played The Louie for a while so it's about time we went back. Not played Bristol as a full band for a while either, tbh... For our special guests, Crimson Sky, this will be a last ever gig after a distinguished career, so don't miss it.

Saturday 15th November 2014 - The Railway, Winchester

With special guests The Gift

We enjoyed playing here so much last time, we're doing it again, with special guests The Gift.

So, as you can see, that's the Autumn, mini-tour all organised about six months earlier than we usually manage it!

Friday 14th November 2014 - DanFest IV @ The Musician, Leicester

The first night of the festival is a reprise of our recent show at The Musician with The Room opening up.

We're once again delighted to have been invited by Danny Mayo to appear at The Musician at the fourth DanFest, having played the second event, in 2012. Danny also promoted a show with ourselves and The Room in November 2013, as part of the [REDACTED] album launch tour and we're very much looking forward to another show at this excellent venue.

Thursday 13th November 2014 - The Railway, Bolton

With special guests Manning Akoustik

We loved it so much last year, we're going back. This year we have Manning in Akoustik form opening up for us. Should be fun!

Thursday 23rd October 2014 - NEO DEALS @ Riffs Bar, Greatfield, Swindon

A short-notice support slot for Lifesigns

We like Riffs. You will too - come along!

Saturday 4th October 2014 - NEO DEALS @ John Dee, Oslo

Supporting The Steve Rothery Band

We are delighted to announce that Si and Rich will be back in Oslo in October to open up for The Steve Rothery Band at John Dee, a venue Rich is very familiar with from his outings with Norwegian Marillion Tribute, Misplaced Neighbourhood.

Of course, Steve has himself played with Misplaced Neighbourhood a couple of times - as well as guesting on Comfortably Numb with Also Eden in January. I wonder what could be happening on Friday 3rd?...

Saturday 27th September 2014 - NEO DEALS @ Summers End Festival

Acoustic appearance at the 10th anniversary of Summers End

Si and Rich are delighted to have been invited to play at the tenth edition of Summers End, aka SE X. A busy day, as we're off to headline the Maize Stage at Something Else In The Dean that evening.

Saturday 27th September 2014 - NEO DEALS @ Something Else In The Dean

Headlining the Maize Stage

Earlier in the year, Rich ended up playing his first ever solo set, at Bearded Theory Festival, in the Something Else Tent. Well, Gail must have been impressed because she's invited Rich to bring Si along and play on the Maize Stage at Something Else In The Dean 2014.

Sorry to disappoint anyone who wants to come though but the festival is sold out. You can always come along and see us at Summers End earlier in the day in Chepstow.

Sunday 24th August 2014 - NEO DEALS @ The Three Pigeons, Banbury

Appearing as part of an all-day mini-festival

We'll be on at 7:15pm for an hour. Well, it's a festival, so that may change!

Friday 1st August 2014 - Resonance Festival

Headlining the Jack Daniels Rock Stage

Resonance is a new festival and we are delighted to have been involved from the start and to be headlining the Jack Daniels Stage on the Friday night!

For further details and tickets, click through to the Facebook page from the link above or visit their website.

Friday 25th April 2014 - NEO DEALS @ Bishop's Cleeve Tithe Barn

Supporting Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman

We're very pleased to have been asked to open up for Gordon and Oliver at this rare full electric performance. We'll be acoustic, of course...

Friday 11th April 2014 - NEO DEALS @ The Miners Arms, Whitecroft

A Breaking Acts Night by Mark Venus Music

A half-hour Neo Deals outing along with additional acts as yet unknown. There may well even be some new tracks...

Sunday 6th April 2014 - NEO DEALS @ The Golden Guinea, Redcliffe

A Mark Venus Music Event

A half-hour Neo Deals outing along with additional acts as yet unknown. There may well even be some new tracks...

Saturday 29th March 2014 - NEO DEALS @ Riffs Bar, nr. Swindon

With Credo, Andy Sears, Comedy Of Errors, Simon Godfrey, Robert Ramsey, Casual Affair...

It's Mark Colton, Credo vocalist's birthday bash.

Tickets are ONLY £10 each and Mark says, "When you think how much you would expect to pay to see this billing at a traditional festival, I am sure you will agree how "fair" and "minimal" the price is'. I'm hopeful you will also come and buy lots of CDs and Shirts from the bands on the night!!!"

Tickets are selling VERY FAST and are available from Riffs, Holmes Music, the Swindon Tourist Information Centre.

Saturday 8th March 2014 - The Asylum 2, Birmingham

Double-header with Morpheus Rising

The last double-headers we did with Morpheus Rising were for the launches of our respective previous albums, Think Of The Children! and Let The Sleeper Awake. Well, we're at it again - Saturday, March 8th at The Asylum 2 in Birmingham, as part of our [REDACTED] launch mini-tour #2 and their Eximius Humanus launch tour.

Friday 7th March 2014 - The Brunswick, Gloucester

With support from The Room

And everyone who came to see The Room and ourselves at The Musician in Leicester will also understand why we're doing this one with them too. As it's pretty much home territory for us, we're hoping to get a big crowd out for this one, so come along and join the fun.

Thursday 6th March 2014 - The Railway, Winchester

With support from The Room

Evidently we like places called The Railway. We'll call the next album Trainspotting, I think. Anyway, everyone who came to see The Room and ourselves at The Musician in Leicester seemed to be rather enamoured of the combination, so we're doing it again.

Saturday 1st March 2014 - NEO DEALS @ The White Hart, Cinderford

As part of Both Sides Of The Bridge, celebrating singers/songwriters from both sides of the Severn

Si and Rich have signed up with a promoter to get out and about a bit more as a duo, where we'll be playing tracks from the back catalogue and trying out new material.

Sunday 8th December 2013 - NEO DEALS @ The Exchange, Bristol

A five-artist, mainly acoustic evening

We will be playing a half-hour set, no doubt similar to the one we did with Crimson Sky in Reading and featuring several songs from [REDACTED]. Get in touch with us to buy advance tickets cheaply.

Sunday 10th November 2013 - The Musician, Leicester

With support from The Room

Rounding off the [REDACTED] album launch weekend, we're returning to the scene of a couple of very pleasant gigs in the last year, The Musician in Leicester. Support from Reading band, The Room.

Saturday 9th November 2013 - NEO DEALS @ South Street Arts Centre, Reading

Acoustic duo gig supporting Crimson Sky

G, H and Lee get an evening off during the launch gigs, as Si and Rich open up for our friends Crimson Sky.

Thursday 7th November 2013 - The Railway, Bolton

With support from Mr So & So

The Railway is a great venue where some of us enjoyed Mr So & So a short while back, so we've arranged our first [REDACTED] album launch gig there, with them!

Wednesday 6th November 2013 - The Garage, Swansea

Support TBA

Kicking off the [REDACTED] album launch tour, we'll be playing a new venue for us, probably with a local support - further details to follow.

Saturday 19th October 2013 - The Corporation, Sheffield

Supporting Jump

We very much enjoyed Jump's acoustic set at The Robin so are looking forward to opening up for them at The Corporation, a new venue for us.

Sunday 15th September 2013 - The Robin 2, Bilston

Supporting Moon Safari for the CRS

We've been invited by the Classic Rock Society to open up for the rather excellent Moon Safari.

Saturday 6th July 2013 - The Met, Bury

Double-header with Manning, who will be playing second

We're looking forward to this trip oop North for a double-header with our F2 label-mates, Manning.

Thursday 27th June 2013 - NEO DEALS @ The Fleece, Bristol

Acoustic duo gig supporting Crimson Sky and Red Jasper

The last time Rich supported Red Jasper was with his band, Sane, at the Bristol Bierkeller, in 1992! Like Also Eden, they've had a few line-up changes over the years and we were very interested to be invited to open up this show and check them out. To make things sensible from a timing and logistics perspective, this will be an outing for Si & Rich, now under the new moniker, Neo Deals (yes, that's right, it is). Our friends Crimson Sky will be second on.

Sunday 9th June 2013 - The Robin 2, Bilston

A Triple-Header with Manning and Jump

Manning and Jump are both bands that have been features of the UK progressive rock scene for many a year and we're delighted to be taking part in this triple-header. Jump will be opening proceedings, Manning up next, with Also Eden rounding off the evening in our usual style. Those of you who attended the previous triple-bill with Crimson Sky and Mr So & So will know that this will be an event well worth attending.

Saturday 6th April 2013 - HRH Prog, Magna, Rotherham

Playing from 6:30 to 7:30 PM

We're excited to have been asked to appear at this new festival, which takes place in what sounds like a very interesting environment (a former steel works - see the website for further details). As with YProg the previous month, the line-up is excellent and we're looking forward to seeing many of the other acts.

Friday 29th March 2013 - The Globe, Cardiff

With support from Sankara and Matt Stevens

We very much enjoyed the gig we did at The Globe with Sankara and Howard Sinclair in July, so we're doing it again, with the rather wonderful Matt Stevens supporting. Ticket details to follow shortly.

Saturday 23rd March 2013 - The Musician, Leicester

Supporting The Watch for Danny Mayo's 50th Birthday Bash

Danny Mayo, organiser of Danfest, where we recently had such a great time, is having a 50th Birthday Bash in March and has invited us to open up the show. The headline act is The Watch, who are an apparently very good early Genesis Tribute, so I'm sure Si will spend the whole evening studying guitar tunings and chords!

They normally sell out, so if you fancy coming, get over here and Buy A Ticket!

Friday 11th January 2013 - Gamla Christiania, Oslo

Marillion's Steve Rothery has previously guested on Sugar Mice with the Norwegian Marillion tribute, Misplaced Neighbourhood, for whom Rich sings. Rich, Steve and Mr So & So also played some old Marillion tracks at The Peel, back in February 2012. This time, Steve and Misplaced are getting together to play a number of old tracks, some of which Steve hasn't played since the 80s and we've been invited to open the show. Tickets are selling fast, so get over here if you want one!

Saturday 24th November 2012 - DanFest, The Musician, Leicester

Second running of Danny Mayo's Progressive Festival

We're very pleased to have been asked by Danny to play and are now playing second in the evening session, followed by headliners Galahad. If you want a ticket and you don't have one yet, I believe it's close to selling out.

Friday 23rd November 2012 - The Peel, Kingston-Upon-Thames

Double-header with Mr So & So

As a warm-up for Danfest the following night, we're playing The Peel with our friends Mr So & So. It's the 49th anniversaries of both the Kennedy Assassination (well, a day out) and the first broadcast of Dr Who, so expect some surprises.

Saturday 17th November 2012 - Si & Rich @ The Buffalo Bar, Cardiff

Acoustic duo gig, supporting Sankara

It's Sankara's Guided By Degress album launch, and they've invited Si and Rich to open up for them - we'll be playing a selection of Also Eden tracks, including some not normally heard in the full electric set, plus maybe a cover or two.

Friday 16th November 2012 - The Exchange, Old Market, Bristol

Supporting The Strawbs

Very excited about this short-notice support gig at a relatively new Bristol venue (which has had previous guises, the most recent being Castro's). We can sell you tickets directly for £8 - instead of £12.50 (Adv) / £15 (Door). (Contact us via the usual channels.)

Please note that it's an early start, as the venue has a curfew - be there by 7PM.

Sunday 23rd September 2012 - The Robin2, Bilston

Contemporary progressive rock with Also Eden, Mr So & So, and Crimson Sky

We're delighted to be playing a headline set at the Robin2, one of our favourite venues, along with the brilliant Mr So & So and the wonderful Crimson Sky. It promises to be a wonderful evening of contemporary progressive rock, so come on down! Tickets are £8 advance, £10 on the door, doors open 7pm, show kick-off 7:30pm!

Sunday 1st July 2012 - The Globe, Cardiff

Contemporary progressive rock with Also Eden and Sankara

This is our first time at the Globe, Cardiff, and we're especially pleased to be working with Sankara. It should be a great night! Tickets are £8 advance, available from EventBrite (booking fee £1.13), or £10 on the door, doors open 730pm, show kick-off 8pm!

Sunday 6th May 2012 - De Kade, Zaandam, Nederland

Support from Silhouette and Maschine (formerly Concrete Lake)

The second gig of the mini-tour is at De Kade in Zaandam (an easy walk from the train station), just north of Amsterdam. Tickets are again only EUR 10 in advance (plus EUR 1.50 booking fee), from TicketScript or EUR 12.50 on the door.

Saturday 5th May 2012 - Starsound, Utrecht, Nederland

Support from Incidense and Maschine (formerly Concrete Lake)

We're off to The Netherlands with Maschine (formerly known as Concrete Lake), winners of both the CRPP and CRS Best Newcomer awards for 2011. The first gig is at Starsound in Utrecht, where the band last played three years ago, and where Rich often rehearses with Lords of the Backstage. Tickets are only EUR 10 in advance (plus EUR 1.50 booking fee), from TicketScript or EUR 12.50 on the door.

Thursday 12th April 2012 - The Fleece, Bristol

Double-header with Leatherat, Also Eden playing second

This is the second of two double-headers with the most excellent Leatherat, who are a very well-established "progressive folk" band from Banbury. Both bands will be playing full sets - Also Eden on second this time - but don't be late, or you'll kick yourselves for missing Leatherat. As with the 12 Bar double-header, tickets are only £8 in advance or £10 on the door (from The Fleece directly or usual Bristol ticket outlets).

Friday 23rd March 2012 - The Rhondda Hotel, Cymmer, Porth

Headlining the valleys of your soul - with support from The Hounds Of Justice

It's, obviously, an absolute disgrace that the band haven't played in Wales, seeing as we're half Welsh, so we're going to rectify that! We're hoping to get in a decent audience, so it's only three pounds on the door. This date was going to be a week later, but it'd be rather silly having two prog gigs in Porth on the same night! Support from local outfit The Hounds Of Justice.

Saturday 3rd March 2012 - The Spring Garden Tavern, Bristol

supported by Dark Energy

A first outing for Also Eden at a Bristol venue that Rich last played with Midnight Rambler in about 1997. Support band is Dark Energy, who last played with us at The Louisiana, back in August. This gig is Free Entry!

Friday 2nd March 2012 - The 12 Bar, Swindon

double-header with Leatherat, who will be playing second

A swift return to one of the Think Of The Children! album launch venues, this time as a double-header with the most excellent Leatherat, who are a very well-established "progressive folk" band from Banbury. Both bands will be playing full sets, so don't be late. Probably a good idea to get a ticket in advance too, not just because they're only £8 (£10 on the door), but also because just over the border in Oxfordshire Leatherat gigs often sell out.

Saturday 10th December 2011 - The Avenue, Leigh

Three-day charity festival, with loads of bands

It'd be rude to come "oop north" and not take the opportunity to play more than one gig, so we've secured a slot a The Avenue's 7th Xmas Festival - in aid of The Cystic Fibrosis Trust. We're playing at 5.30pm, so come along, say hello, and stay for the evening (there are bands on before us too).

Friday 9th December 2011 - Fibbers, York

Supporting Morpheus Rising

A first trip up North for us, "returning the favour" to Morpheus Rising. Door tax: £6.

Friday 25th November 2011 - Riffs Bar, Greatfield nr Swindon

Supporting Godsticks

Short-notice gig - supporting the excellent Godsticks.

Sunday 30th October 2011 - Robin 2, Bilston

Supporting IO Earth

We'll be rounding off album launch weekend with this support slot at the Robin 2.

Saturday 29th October 2011 - The 12 Bar, Swindon

Support from Morpheus Rising

This will be the second of two gigs to launch our new album, Think of the Children! The 12 Bar is an excellent venue and we're very much looking forward to playing it for the first time.

Friday 28th October 2011 - The Peel, Kingston-Upon-Thames

Support from Morpheus Rising

This will be the first of two gigs to launch our new album, Think of the Children. We'll be playing a good proportion - indeed maybe all - of the album.

Thursday 27th October 2011 - The Fleece, Bristol

Headline gig, with three local supports

Please do come along to this one, which we've booked at short-notice as a bit of a warm-up - it's only 4 quid in advance, 5 quid on the door.

Thursday 25th August 2011 - Louisiana, Bristol

Support from Dark Energy

We've been invited to headline at this bijou little venue that's quite well known as a regular stop on the up-and-coming band scene. Support band is Dark Energy, featuring a very old friend of Rich's on guitar and vocals.

Friday 5th August 2011 - Cambridge Rock Festival

Stage 2, 1.10PM

We're delighted to have been asked to play at this four-day festival, with other acts on the Friday including Godsticks, Morpheus Rising, Heather Findlay, John Otway and Manning.

Thursday 21st July 2011 - The Fleece, Bristol

supporting The Reasoning

A home town gig for Rich, albeit that he now lives back in the land of his fathers. Should be good!

Thursday 19th May 2011 - Electric Garden Festival, Blackpool

With Credo and Matt Stevens

We're delighted to be playing at the inaugral outing of the Electric Garden Festival in Blackpool. We'll be there on the Thursday night playing 845pm and supporting Credo. Hope to see you there!

Saturday 30th April 2011 - The Peel, Kingston-Upon-Thames

Supporting Tinyfish

Another night out on the town with our Tinyfish friends, this time at the wonderful Peel - a favourite venue of ours!

Friday 29th April 2011 - Riffs Bar, Greatfield nr Swindon

Supporting Tinyfish

We're delighted to be supporting the excellent Tinyfish as they promote their wonderful album "The Big Red Spark". This will be our first outing of 2011 - and the first gig since Rich's accident in July 2010.
