Just a few for now from the Slam Dunk Festival at the NEC in Birmingham.
This was a fantastic homecoming gig for Billy Lockett, virtually selling out the Royal & Derngate’s Royal stage. Some fantastic lighting during the show which saw Lockett perform, unaccompanied, on the piano. Joining him was Cousin Avi. First time back shooting at the R&D since Amy Macdonald’s headline gig last […]
Bedford rockers Don Broco headlined the Roadmender this week as part of the second leg of their Technology Tour. Joining them were Yungblud and The LaFontaines. The take home from this gig – keep an eye on your kit, as a 24-70 rolling off a ledge onto a concrete floor ain’t […]
The Manic Street Preachers brought their Resistance Is Futile tour to the Arena Birmingham this week. Joining them were The Coral. Another great set by Wales’ finest, even if the lighting was a bit ropy at times.

Best band in the UK. No question about it.
Gary Numan brought the latest leg of his Savage world tour to the Roadmender last night. Numan was joined by Nightmare Air and Northampton’s Tim Middiman, who as well as opening the show with his band The Strange, is Numan’s long time bassist. Challenging lighting, but I didn’t really expect […]
A few from Therapy? who played a one off gig at the Craufurd Arms before heading out on tour with The Stranglers. Bit annoyed to see Andy Cairns lurking in the shadows so much, but still a great night. After a very crappy few months, this was something I’d been looking […]
Some photos of Liam Gallagher headlining Arena Birmingham as part of the Oasis frontman’s headline tour supporting his debut LP As You Were. Joining Liam were Rat Boy and Trampoline. A fantastic show with a proper feeling of excitement ahead of the gig. Second time shooting Trampoline after frontman Jack […]
Having seen and photographed Royal Blood play to a couple of hundred of people at Esquires a few years ago, you can’t help but admire what they’ve achieved. Their headline gig at the Barclaycard Arena was pretty special, sounded great and included a great live show. Along for the ride […]
