Coheed and Cambria This power-house American prog-rock band Coheed and Cambria performed their 2005 smash-album, “Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume One: From Fear Through the Eyes of Madness” in its entirety at KOKO, London on an absolutely sweltering Monday night as part of their “The NEVERENDER GAIBSIV” tour. To see a band, play an entire album from start to finish is a unique experience and a first for me. The second night of two London dates was attended by a lot of clearly obsessively dedicated fans which nearly packed out the 1500 capacity venue.

Guns n' Roses A show that was never to be played in Axl Rose’s lifetime, happened in London tonight and he was on time, on cue and fully committed. London’s Olympic Stadium shook to the heavy rock sounds from Guns n' Roses 'Appetite for Destruction' and a lot of covers, but at least Slash and Axl are on stage together once more.

Hanson 25 years has gone by but we are still MMMBopping away! We turned back time to the 90s, reliving the teenage years when the trio brothers, Isaac, Taylor and Zac first formed Hanson in 1992 and found fame with the huge hit 'MMMBop' 20 years ago. Crowd packed O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on the sold out show on Saturday were fans mostly in their late 20s to 30s fulfilling their childhood dream of seeing Hanson performing live in London, and it was more meaningful as the Middle of Everywhere Tour marked their 25th anniversary.

Imagine Dragons In anticipation of the upcoming third studio album Evolve (ƎVOLVE), scheduled for release later this month, American alt-rock band Imagine Dragons played a very special show at Roundhouse last night and Adila and I were fortunate enough to attend it. Having two of the top ten most downloaded songs in rock history, 'Radioactive' and 'Demons', the band has had a meteoric rise to fame from playing small venues in front of 100 to some of the biggest music festivals in the world and being able to draw a crowd of early-twenty-somethings that literally went around the block when I arrived at the venue.

Depeche Mode Legendary. Inspirational. Influential. Iconic. These words are more than apt for a band that have delivered so much on multiple levels for well over three decades, and remain right at the top of their game. Bizarrely in the UK, their home turf, they have remained stuck in this "cult like" status, while across the rest of the world they are at the top of all touring artists with stadia tours. Well tonight, after a career of more that 37 years, to a sold out London Stadium with a potential gig capacity of 80,000, Depeche Mode have come home. To show us exactly what they are giving to the rest of the world on a their 'Global Spirit' Tour.

Wheatus If you’re between the ages of 15 and 55, you probably know Wheatus’ anthem 'Teenage Dirtbag' and likely, every word of it. Essentially only famous for the one song and with over 20 band member changes its release, I was curious to see whether the now 40-somethings can still entertain singing about their teenage shenanigans.
