"Wow" was a word used extensively last weekend. A response to so many things.
Wow, because Aerie Faerie Nonsense was played in full, and in a way never experienced before.
Wow, because the show sold out, and we were able to celebrate with every dynamic of music lover, including some who had never seen The Enid before.
Wow, because Dominic Tofield's first performance was exceptional on his part, and the audience treated him with the respect you would give someone who had been there forever. Thank you all for that.
Wow, because the surprises in the first set received such an emotional response, reflecting the strength of the current line up and our modern material.
Wow, because people came so far to be there.
Wow, because not only has this timeless music has survived 40 years, but also continues to seed and grow.
We could go on forever; there was so much to celebrate! Thank you to all who were there to share the moment with us.
Our Summer Plans
Our next show is at THE MET in BURY, Greater Manchester, on Friday 20th June. We've decided to repeat the 40th Anniversary Show for our friends up north. We are recording these shows, and plan to use the best moments to produce a 40th Anniversary Live CD as the exclusive Enidi gift this year. There are still some tickets left, but limited to availability. CLICK HERE to book seats before this show sells out too!
There are also a few festivals to look forward to this Summer:
- Sonic Rock Solstice, SOUTH WALES - Saturday 21st June
- Resonance Rock Festival, LONDON - Saturday 2nd August (Headliner)
- Crescendo Festival, FRANCE - 22nd-24th August
Apart from playing these festivals, those of us who have managed to completely escape from any other responsibilities outside the band (Max, Joe, Jason, Dom and Robert) will be spending the entire summer in our German retreat, working hard on developing the material for our next release. We will also be making some more videos for you to enjoy and share. This would not be possible without the assistance the band receive from The Enidi and the proceeds from sales of records and other merchandise from Enid HQ. Members of The Enidi will also be manning the shop while the band are away so you can still get your orders in and help to keep the band in Bratwurst!
T-Shirts, Vinyl and all sorts of new merchandise!
Dominic - both a qualified graphic designer as well as a talented multi-instrumentalist - has been working hard for us to create a whole new set of attractive T-Shirt designs, with a new psychedelic version added just this week. The shirts are Fruit of The Loom and are being made to order, so you can get any design, colour or size you want! By popular request, we also have most of them available in women's V-Neck cuts now too - great for the summer. Enhance your wardrobe and help out the band at the same time!
