1994 1995 1996 1997 1998

This is an attempt at a complete gigography for the band. It's based on gigographies from the old Chance and Let's All Go Together sites, with a few other sources thrown in, so should be a little more complete. I've tried to include details for each gig including set list, support, if a recording exists, pictures, reviews and any relevant links (most of the additional content is off-site at the moment, but I hope to add more hosted here). Clicking on a gig in the list on the right will take you to the relevant page, and any info available has been listed and linked next to it. If there is any content on here that belongs to someone else and they want it removed, just give me a shout. Performances/sessions for Radio or TV are also listed.

It's still a work in progress, and will probably always remain so, but it's beginning to look pretty good thanks to the huge and generous support offered by so many kind people. Cheers!

The broadstrokes:

1994 - Building their reputation as a great live band, toured extensively in support of their debut single, Violent Men. Supported Electrafixion on their November UK tour, and finished the year supporting the Manic Street Preachers on 2 of their 3 dates at London Astoria, famously the last gigs Richy Edwards did before his disappearance.

1995 - Started the year touring as part of the NME Brat Bus tour. Supported Morrissey (which played a big part in bringing them to wider audience), then Radiohead, before doing their first proper headline tour in support of the Toys For Boys single. Following the festival season, they played a brief tour of Germany, before returning to the UK to tour in support of the Let's All Go Together single. They returned to Germany in November to do a bigger tour supporting Terry Hoax.

1996 - Marion's year began in North America, before playing a few dates in mainland Europe then the UK in the spring. Their first Japanese tour followed in April, with the This World And Body tour occupying May.

1997 - Recording of the 2nd album meant the band played few live shows this year. 3 dates in December gave them the chance to debut material from The Program.

1998 - Handful of shows in London, giving the new songs a chance to shine. A 2nd tour of Japan followed in June, before returning to the UK to play the festivals. In search of a new record deal, they finished the year in the US again.

Then, a gap......
