Richard Ashcroft and Black Grape in Birmingham

Last night was a great opportunity to shoot Richard Ashcroft at the Barclaycard Arena, with Black Grape supporting.  Of course I was going to love that chance although I find the arena stage a bit of a challenge as its high and I’ve never grown :)

Black Grape were good, the last time I saw them they were on blistering form, by comparison they were working harder and Kermit had more of an eye on Shaun as they had new material to deliver.

Richard Ashcroft was a real wow moment, a jacket so sparkly I wanted to own it, combined with a bigger presence than I expected and that’s before he started to play.  To me he sounded superb.

The whole review (by a proper reviewer) along with lots more of my images are already on Birmingham Live.
