Sunset Sons @ O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, 27/10/2016

Last Thursday night an incredible Sunset Sons sent West London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire into delirium with their fantastic show, the penultimate of their UK tour.

Mumford & Sons @The O2, 10/12/2015

Looks like I missed two of my best gigs of 2015 off the list, well here it is now. Note to self: set reminder to upload blog pieces. Many were doubtful how Mumford & Sons would sustain their status as acoustic geniuses with the new, more indie, album Wilder Mind. I myself had to give it a few listening sessions before being convinced, but once … Continue reading Mumford & Sons @The O2, 10/12/2015

Alabama Shakes bring sound & colour to O2 Academy Brixton

Alabama Shakes finished off the European leg of their tour with two sold out shows at O2 Academy Brixton on 18 and 19 November. And what a tour finish it was.
