Frank Turner It’s been a couple of months now since I last spent an evening enjoying the company of Mr Frank Turner and it’s fair to say he’s obviously gone up in the world since his autumn 2009 tour. Back in 2009 I went to see him in Wolverhampton with a couple of songs in my head and a budding interest in the self proclaimed ‘Skinny, half-arsed English country singer’ and his unique brand of folk/punk. Since that show, I’ve become a bona-fide Frank Turner fan, and Sunday’s gig in the more prominent venue of Birmingham’s O2 Academy 1, was absolutely phenomenal!

Lily Allen Just over a week after Lily appeared on Radio One’s Live Lounge with Sara Cox where Lily announced that she intends to take a year or so off from music and writing. So tonight’s gig/tour has even more excitement around it as we're all wondering how long it will be before we see Lily strutting her stuff on stage again? Despite being a poorly girl (suffering with laryngitis) during her Live lounge performance her voice sounded great tonight, powerful yet sweetly angelic, not a croak was heard.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs I really didn’t know what to expect from a Yeah Yeah Yeah gig... I have a couple of their albums but I’ve never seen them live before. Without wanting to enrage YYYs fans everywhere I had a preconceived idea that it might be a bit boring. Well happily I was wrong.
