Cher at Arena Birmingham, UK – 26th October 2019

Ahead of the very welcome appearance at this impressive venue of one of pop music’s biggest names, the main question on my mind – apart from what songs from the past 50-plus years might feature – was how many costume changes there would be.

The Who + Eddie Vedder at Wembley Stadium, London, UK – 6th July 2019

The Who
The greatest bands and musicians are slowly fading away and, being 20 years old, I’ll never be able to say I’ve seen many of the legendary rock bands to have ever lived because they’re either too old or dead by now. But after a trip to Wembley stadium one Saturday night in July, all of that changed with two legendary acts of the rock world taking over the stage.

Palaye Royal at Electric Brixton, London, UK – 7th October 2018

Palaye Royale
Palaye Royale’s first sold out headline tour has been filled with ups and downs. The three date tour included Palaye’s first Scottish show, followed by Manchester where the venue was upgraded after it sold out in days and not forgetting the sold out show at KOKO which had to be closed for emergency building work; so the band had to reschedule the show to Electric Brixton on the 7th instead.

At The Drive In + Death From Above at The O2 Institute, Birmingham, UK – 12th March 2018

At The Drive In
If Death From Above punch you in the gut then At The Drive In obliterate all of your senses without a hint of mercy. Intentions are laid out from the outset with the post-hardcore band returning to their critically acclaimed album, Relationship of Command, for the opening track, Arcarsenal.

Ani Difranco + Chastity Brown @ Town Hall, Birmingham – 30 June 2017

Ani Difranco
At a seated Birmingham Town Hall, with hardly half of the seats filled, a man with long long dreadlocks took to the stage to introduce the evening. I’ve seen Ani Difranco over 15 times now, and this wasn’t a face I recognized, but in recent years I’ve seen her less and less, so perhaps this is the new norm.

Pierce The Veil + Letlive. at The O2 Academy, Birmingham, UK – 26th November 2016

Pierce The Veil
The release of their latest album Misadventures brought Pierce The Veil to the O2 Birmingham Academy on this frosty Saturday evening. Ever popular in the UK, it was no surprise that this show was a complete sell out – even Radio 1 Rock Show’s Dan P Carter bypassed the German Markets to grace The Academy with his presence.

Foals + Everything Everything + Peace DJ Set at The Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, UK – 19th February 2016

FANTASTIC FOALS! Yannis Philippakis & his Foals are flying right now. The radio & media cannot get enough of their new album, ‘What Went Down’. After winning the NME ‘Best Album 2016’ & “smashing” Wembley a few nights before, I was on the edge of my seat in anticipation for a storming show. I was not let down! It was to be an exhibition of their versatility as they stride closer to confirmation as one of the UK’s best ever bands.

The Libertines at The Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, UK – 27th January 2016

The Libertines
The Libertines rocked into Birmingham Barclaycard arena as if it was no different from any of the smaller venues they had previously played, performing with the energy that was longed for during the ten years that passed before ‘Anthems for Doomed Youth’ emerged onto the scene late last year.

The Prodigy + Public Enemy at The Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham, UK – 3rd December 2015

The Prodigy

Dear Keith, Maxim & Liam- THANK YOU! Thank you for making me feel so proud to be British at a time of uncertainty. The Prodigy are The Kings of Big Beat & this evening firmly established that view. The outreach that these guys possess reeks of grandeur. The crowd consisted of early teens to shameless OAPs all bouncing off the walls of The Barclaycard Arena to the sound of EDM royalty!

A$AP Rocky + Wiz Khalifa at Genting Arena, Birmingham, UK – 16th October 2015

A$AP Rocky + Wiz Khalifa
Here I was at a Wiz Khalifa + A$AP Rocky concert on a cold October evening at the newly rebranded Genting Arena, The venue is a 14,000 capacity venue but unfortunately only 3,000 was in attendance but you would not be able to tell by the energy in the room.
