Neverender was a four-night concert series performed by Coheed and Cambria. It took place in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and London, and consisted of one of the band's four studio albums being played in full each night, telling the story of the concept in sequence according to each album. "Neverender" is a song from their first album, The Second Stage Turbine Blade.

(different order in London due to cancellation on December 2)

Announcement[edit]

In early July 2008, the band's official website and MySpace featured a teaser poster with the dragonfly artwork for an event called Neverender. A few days later, the event was unveiled to the public. Four days before all of the tickets went on sale there was a presale of special "VIP" tickets. These were 10% of the total number of tickets for the concerts. They sold out within minutes of going on sale.

In early August, the band's official website along with their MySpace featured two flags on the same Neverender poster. Two days later it was announced that Neverender would also have shows in Chicago and London. The film Night of the Living Dead was played in the background on night four.

Neverender: The Children of the Fence Box Set[edit]

On March 24, 2009 a box set was released containing footage from all nights of Neverender from the New York City dates. It contains a CD and DVD of each night of the concert as well as a documentary entitled The Fiction Will See The Real, both directed by Doug Spangenberg.

London cancellation[edit]

The band were forced to cancel their show at the London Astoria on Tuesday December 2, due to a power cut caused by road maintenance outside the building and the accidental severance of a major power conduit. As a result the performance of In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth: 3 was rescheduled for Friday December 5.

Initially, the VIP Meet and Greet and Acoustic performance were moved to the Friday, but as a fair number of fans were unable to make the new date, lead singer Claudio Sanchez announced on-stage that the Thursday would remain the same and Friday date would feature a cover song set including music by Claudio Sanchez's one-man side project The Prize Fighter Inferno.
