Greta Van Fleet It’s not every day you get to go see a band boldly dubbed “The Future of Rock ‘n Roll”. That’s quite a heavy load to bear for a foursome from Frankenmuth, Michigan, that are all under 21! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see Greta Van Fleet on Wednesday evening as they packed out the O2 Islington to over-capacity. The band has an immense hype build around them at the moment and getting a ticket to one of the two London shows were a hot commodity. The band consists of three brothers, lead singer, Josh Kiszka; his twin brother, Jake Kiszka on guitar; younger brother, Sam on bass and then Danny Wagner behind the drums.

Evanescence Six years after their last UK tour, Evanescence have returned with their newly released album Synthesis which features a combination of brand new material and some of their older classics (with a twist). Tonight the Manchester Apollo is buzzing with an unexpected and different vibe to your average 'rock' concert. The audience has matured somewhat, gone are the days of baggy jeans and chains, thrashing about a sweaty mosh pit, as tonight, people have traded that in for formal attire, ready for this seated only show.

Tom Walker We meet Tom Walker exactly halfway through his biggest tour to date and wait in anticipation to see what the singer-songwriter has brought to the table this time. It’s been just over a year since we were last left melodically satisfied from his exceptionally promising performance at The Sunflower Lounge, not even a 15 minute walk away from where we stand at the O2 Institute in Birmingham. It’s fair to say that since then Tom has nabbed some great achievements. From releasing his first EP, to playing at Glastonbury festival and Radio City Hall in New York his worldly presence and intriguing music has captivated a huge audience and it’s no surprise the tour is sold out.
