and one of my all time favourites.

I have seen them twice and can recommend them : top notch

Especially Clive Nolan (keyboards) has impressed me from the beginning by his brilliance and capability to write beautiful songs.

Great band. Clive Nolan who also writes the lyrics and most of the music is a genius IMO. John Mitchell plays flawless guitar.

Woa!!! Now I see why, and never heard of them... Thanks.

I have written down the name for future visits to the music store.

I have a friend in myspace, perhaps you heard of him,
If not, I recommend too...

Very pink-floyd-esque sounds, but amazing as well.

See you soon! Idea

I find Clive Nolan one of the best UK keyboardists. I like the Pendragon stuff even more. Great MOOG solo's.

you're right I found Clive Nolan's complete statement which sounds more optimistic Smile

After working hard with Arena for about ten years, both Mick and I felt it was time to take a break. We both had things we wanted to do, and while it was easier for other band members to go off and play with other projects, we were kind of 'strapped to the mast'. So, after 'Pepper's Ghost', it was time to put things on ice for a while.

Naturally, when breaks like this happen, everyone fills the gaps with other things, so it becomes harder to gather everyone together again. However, we are all now ready to move forward with Arena.

So:
Has Arena split up? No, not at all!
Are there plans for Arena to do anything new? Yes
When will there be a new album? That is impossible to answer right now. It depends on how fast we write the album.

Mick and I had a short meeting before he went off on tour with the 'Script', and we agreed that we would meet again (after the Shadowland tour and some Caamora dates..Wink, and start writing this elusive seventh album! We do have a few bits of material already, and I have a concept and a title, so things have already started. It's just a matter of regaining the time we need.

I can tell you that the next album will be pretty dark (no surprises there!), and deals with some awkward themes.

You want something exclusive?...ok..... The next Arena album will be called....

I knew Clive Nolan was Pendragon keyboardist, but I didn't know there was another prog rock group he was involved in. I have listened to their first two albums ("Songs from the Lion's cage" and "Pride") and they are GREAT !!!!

Thank you very much, Vignoble Wink

Great to hear Alvaro entered the Arena Wink

Hope you will have the opportunity to see them in concert once (especially their 1996 gig at Paradiso was unforgettable)
