Past Gigs

Gigs in days gone by are listed below.  The Merlin Bird Solo Shows were performed in the UK, while pretty much everything else was in or around Melbourne, Australia.  To our ongoing dismay, we still don’t seem to have headlined at New York’s Madison Square Gardens yet, but perhaps we just got the list wrong …
