Diversion Ends are making plans for future concerts, hopefully to be announced in the near future - watch this space!


Diversion Ends & Detours performed at Something To Believe In Festival

Diversion Ends performed two incredible 45 minute sets at the Something To Believe In Festival over the August Bank Holiday weekend, on Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th. Also appearing were Detours, 80s chart star Howard Jones, Dan Reed, Room Thirteen, Funky Mustard, Harp and a Monkey and George Borowski, along with approximately 30 other acts. The festival, was held at several venues in the Manchester area, including the BBC, raising over £7,000 funding the Winnie Mabaso Foundation, which supports the orphans of South Africa, many suffering with HIV/AIDS. Thank you to all who supported and sponsored the band. Below is a photo of Diversion Ends' lead singer Sam Johnson with Eric 'Sparky' Parker of the awesome rock band Funky Mustard, who came all the way from Texas to perform. The photo is courtesy of Sparky, so thank you to him for allowing us to include it. Sparky is certainly one hell of a guitarist!


Videos now posted of 25th Anniversary Reunion Theatre Concert - a sellout success!

What a glorious night! Diversion Ends performed a 25th Anniversary Reunion Concert at Playhouse2 Theatre, Shaw on Saturday 5th February 2011. Lead singer Sam Johnson was reunited with Bryn Gater, electric guitar, Carl Robinson, bass guitar, and Andy Marston, drums. The band were joined by their new keyboard player Alex Flanagan for their first, full electric public concert in twenty years! Also, DETOURS performed an acoustic selection of their own material to start the evening, so Sam actually got to be his own support act! What a memorable, magical and emotional evening this turned out to be. The set was awesome, the audience were buzzing. There was a great atmosphere in the theatre. Feedback has been so positive with everyone hungry for further concerts. Several photos are now available on our Photos page and our Facebook site, and live videos of 'My Everything' and 'Cutting Down Trees' are now in our new Video section. More to follow. Enjoy!
