I set off for Bristol last Friday evening, I wanted to get there early to catch the support acts, especially Nick Parker as I've worked with him before. Back in 2010 we shot a music video in and around Glastonbury and on the festival site itself. The traffic was horrendous with all the roadworks around Templemeads and Broadmead, meaning I only just made it in time - but was well worth it, as it always is with Nick.
It was the first time I'd seen Sean McGowan, and was pretty impressed, I enjoyed each song the band played and they were warmly welcomed by the growing crowd waiting for The Levellers. The stage lighting was really great to shoot in during this set - it makes a much more enjoyable shoot, and the results are vastly improved when the lighting is good. Here are a few images during the Sean McGowan set at the O2 Academy Bristol - for the full gallery, click here --->
The Levellers took to the stage in Bristol, the middle night on a 5 show tour to celebrate 30 years! It's just mad to think that Beautiful Day was released in 1997, it's the song that comes to mind when the levellers are mentioned - but there are other big tunes in their catalogue too!
Here are a few shots from The Levellers set, the lighting started off quite moody, but improved as we worked through our allotted time to shoot them.
