Stone Broken @ The Tivoli 20th May 2017

Back to The Tivoli last night, this time to see an upcoming band that I hadn’t seen before, Stone Broken, they are on the Download Festival bill and with them playing a show so close to home I wanted to see them in a more intimate venue.

I got there early, so much so I got to see the two support acts, arriving early certainly paid off, getting a spot right on the barrier. This band didn’t disappoint, the atmosphere in the Tivoli was electric playing songs from ‘All In Time’ their current album but also treating us to a number of new tracks off their forthcoming album, the crowd singing along to almost every single song it was a fantastic evening.

If you haven’t seen Stone Broken yet and they are playing somewhere close to home, get down and see them, you won’t be disappointed. I didn’t take my camera but got some pictures on my phone which are below.

Iron Maiden – Book Of Souls 2017

Yesterday evening marked the very first time I would ever see Iron Maiden, I had been told that the show was absolutely fantastic, friends had been before, some of them many times, I had heard story’s of how I was going to be blown away but I wasn’t sure what to expect.
I had seen Shinedown previously at an appearance at Download Festival but not Iron Maiden, I walked away from the show absolutely buzzing, it was everything everyone had said it would be, the atmosphere, the set itself everything was just amazing, I am not sure that I will ever get to see them again but if you do have a chance to it is well worth it.

I took some pictures too….

Crossfire @ Saith Seren

The first gig of many in 2017 was certainly one not to be missed, the incredible Crossfire were billed to play Saith Seren in Wrexham. Having seen them on the closing gig of 2016 in the freezing cold and knowing the show they put on as a band, I made my way over to the venue to experience and capture the gig in person, as expected they didn’t disappoint, playing a mixture of modern day pop songs in their own unique style and some classic rock songs from greats such as AC/DC it was definitely a gig not to be missed.

Here are some of the images I captured from that gig.
