I have to admit that I was surprised by this gig…
I arrived early on Thursday night to shoot all four bands on the bill… The Devil Wears Prada, Architects, Parkway Drive and headliners, Bring Me The Horizon.
My impression going in was that Bring Me The Horizon were actually my least favourite band on the bill and that, after shooting the first 3 songs, I’d leave and get home fairly early.
That never happened.
All the bands were great. Parkway Drive were a particular highlight for me. But Bring Me The Horizon took me by surprise.
I’ve photographed them a few times before but on this occasion they raised their game and played a superb set which saw band members giving 100% and finishing the encore climbing the Academy balcony (see last photo). 3000 people went suitably nuts.
Here’s a video of the first song of the set… You’ll see me down the front 🙂
