It’s been a while since my last gig (which was actually a festival), and I’ve moved house 250 miles since. It’s nice to be back in the swing of things, and fantastic to kick off again with Stereophonics. The last time I saw these guys was in December ’08, at the Manchester Evening News Arena. This time, they swapped the arena for Camden’s iconic Electric Ballroom, playing exclusively for members of the stereophonics.com website.
This was an odd shoot though. We were only able to shoot the first song from the balcony/viewing area, which was not reserved and already packed with punters vying for the best view. After asking nicely and promising to only stay for the first song, I managed to squeeze in between a pillar and some of the fans. Halfway through, we were escorted outside and into the side entrance to access the photo pit (which was fortunately not filled with fans).
