A Fantastic Week with Graham Bonnet

12/12/14. It’s already been a week since the final show of the tour with Graham Bonnet in at the O2 Academy Birmingham, where has the time gone? What a week it was. We played London, Sheffield, Liverpool, Glasgow, Birmingham, and had a five fantastic shows.

Graham and the whole band made us feel so welcome on their tour, and we really enjoyed their company! And the crowds were amazing. You guys welcomed us with open arms as tour support, and we’ve had fantastic comments and messages since via email, Facebook and Twitter!

Thanks to Graham Bonnet and his management who gave us the opportunity, all the venue staff, sound and lighting guys who made it all look and sound great, but most of all to you guys who turned out to see the shows and showed your support! That makes it all worthwhile!

We’ve exciting stuff in the works for 2015, so keep in touch and we’ll see you down the front again soon!

“If you have not already seen any of Jaden’s guitars before then I urge you to pop over to his facebook page and check out his master craftsmanship. These guitar’s truly are works of art!

I can not wait to see what he creates, excited doesn’t even begin to cover it!

“I am really looking forward to working with Jaden, and discovering what the future holds.

“Meanwhile, in other exciting news….if you would like to come and show your support and see me play with my awesome band Morpheus Rising, come and see us on the U.K part of the Graham Bonnet tour from the 1st of December to the 5th at an O2 venue near you!

“Also, (shameless self promotion here ;-p) you can also check out some of my playing on my youtube channel where I have uploaded a few videos from previous years (just a bit of fun really), with the aim being to use my channel as a teaching platform for guitar lessons etc… which for those of you who didn’t already know, is what I do full time alongside session and dep work.

Acoustic show in Histon, Cambridge

24/11/2014. Following on from a cracking night rocking York with Electric Mary, we had a fantastic but somewhat quieter night at The Boot in Histon, Cambridge last Saturday, playing a special acoustic show for Hazel Woods. Hazel pledged as part of the Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for Eximius Humanus. It was a great challenge to re-imagine some of the MR stuff for acoustic guitars.

Thanks to everyone who came down and were part of a very special evening, and to the staff at the Boot. But an extra special thanks to Hazel and Mark and family for their amazing hospitality and support!

Next, we’re gearing up for the tour with Graham Bonnet, hope to see you on the road next week!

Morpheus Rising to tour with Graham Bonnet

30/10/2014. We are very excited to announce that Morpheus Rising will be tour support for Graham Bonnet on his December UK tour! Having supported Graham Bonnet at York Fibbers in earlier this year, we’re really looking forward to this! It’s going to be a great tour and one not to be missed – get it in your diaries!

This tour will see a slightly different line up, with Craig Hill depping for the injured Nigel Durham, who is currently off games and nursing a shoulder injury, and the irrepressible Yatim Halimi (Panic Room, Steve Rothery Band) filling in for Andy Smith on bass whose Mostly Autumn commitments mean he is unavailable for the tour.

The dates are London O2 Academy Islington December 1st, Sheffield O2 Academy 2 December 2nd, Liverpool O2 Academy 2 December 3rd, Glasgow O2 ABC 2 December 4th and Birmingham O2 Academy 2 December 5th. We’ve been dying to announce this for a while but now everything is signed and sealed so we can finally spill the beans.

Great to have the chance to get out on the road again, and even better to have a chance to support Graham Bonnet again! So dig out your MR shirts, come down to the shows and show us your support! See you down the front.
