Liam Gallagher It’s a mild evening in Manchester as Liam Gallagher played his biggest headline solo show to date with well over 50,000 packed into the cricket ground. Liam's Debut album ‘As You Were’ was only released 10 months ago and his popularity and resurgence has soared in that time. This also has a lot to do with nostalgia and the fact he was the frontman for the mighty Oasis and tonight’s setlist reflects his love for his former band.

John Grant I rock up to The Symphony Hall looking forward to seeing Susanne Sundfoer support the every charming John Grant. Unfortunately she has taken the night off to rest her voice and instead we are treated to Cate Le Bon. This welsh singer songwriter has an incredible band behind her, constantly changing instruments and creating an incredible sound. She has a beautiful and haunting voice that seems to capture those of us in the crowd who arrived early.

Hobo Johnson & The LoveMakers So, summer ‘18 and that insanely tropical heatwave we’d all gotten used to has suddenly disappeared, and instead we’re left outside waiting for doors on a wet and what now feels like a cold 20 something degree evening, desperate to get in and see if Hobo Johnson & the LoveMakers, on their first tour of the UK, can bring some of that warmth back, at least for the night, with their distinctly unique brand.

Tragedy What a night! Heavy guitars, black eyeshadow, glitter and energy, a match made in… disco heaven? Tragedy, for the uninitiated are the ‘All Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees and Beyond!’ and if you’re looking for a night full of high-octane, adults only, fun, look no further than this group of animals straight out of New York City.

The Wildhearts Apparently, tonight’s gig is billed as a warm up for The Wildhearts before they head off to Japan and Australia, let's hope they enjoy similar size crowds out there as they are doing here in The Plug in Sheffield. Just as a side note, it has been rumoured that this pretty decent venue is soon to close and become a golf superstore – what a damn shame if it's true, OK not a classic Sheffield venue along the lines of The Leadmill, but all the same a great live music outlet. Another One Bites The Dust (if you needed a musical reference).
