Highly Suspect If you've not heard of Highly Suspect then in 2018 that's all going to change. The trio originally from Cape Cod, Massachusetts deal in the sort of rock that fits easily along side day time radio friendly pop yet often nips across the border into harder territory… Think Royal Blood and you won't be far off.

Rihanna Nothing to do with the performance - that was stunning - but more to the point, the fact that Rihanna didn't come on to the stage till nearly 10pm - almost an hour and a half after Pixie Lott had finished her performance. Now, it didn't really bother me, I had my iPhone to potter about with and there was a LOT of eye candy about, but - and it's a big BUT - the majority of the crowd were young girls, many of whom would be reliant on lifts off beleaguered parents/public transport to get home. I think even superstar Divas have a responsibility to their fans. It could have been a technical fault or she could have been applying another layer of make-up, who knows, but not a word of explanation or apology was uttered from either Rihanna or her management amongst the multitude of boos from the increasingly frustrated crowd as to why it was sooooo late to kick off. Bad form! Rant over!

Reef Ladies up and down the country clamour to obtain the miracle anti aging cream that Gary Stringer and the boys from Reef have evidently using during their self imposed hiatus from the music scene for the past 7 years... A spokesman for the band refused to comment on the boys lack of aging, although reports are now in that they have been adopting some vehicular method of cheating the space/time continuum. Evidently this vehicle must have been a 3 seater, as the aging process has been a little less kind to the Bass player Jack Bessant.

Bad Company On approaching the LG Arena (NEC as it was formerly known) I couldn't work out whether it was the adverse weather conditions or the general age of the audience that was accounting for the copious amount of wrinkles at the Bad Company gig on Thursday night... ...On closer inspection, and much like the Fleetwood Mac gig that GJ covered last year, it was the average age of the blues bands fan base which accounted for the odd crows foot or two, not surprising when you consider that the band - the brain child of former Free front man Paul Rodgers, started plying their trade in the year I was born (1973 in case you didn't know) and had many of their hits throughout the 70s.

Jamie T A number of things very quickly become apparent at a Jamie T gig. Firstly, he's got a loyal, passionate urban youth following, all of whom seem to know every word to every song. rust me that's a lot of lyrics. Led by their onstage conductor, they sing along with gay abandon, and shout, whoop and holler at all of the key points. LLOOOONNNDDDOOOONNN!!
