Bit gutted about this show to be honest. Doors opened way early (something like 4 or 5.30). I left work around 5, sat in Manchester’s rush hour traffic and arrived about 6.30, then my name wasn’t on the list for a photo pass. After tracking down the relevant Roadrunner PR, I got in, though only in time for Trivium and Slayer. Only had clearance for Trivium though, so shot them and then got to watch the Slayer set without having to concern myself with the plethora (yeah I said it, plethora) of strobes.

The day after, all my camera gear got nicked.

This needs some cropping..!
