Years and Years gave a very polished and entertaining performance to a sold out concert at The Swindon Oasis last night. Good music and good to photograph. I messed up by miss counting the first three songs and security had to ask me to leave the pit but to be honest sometimes you are so busy focused on what you are doing you don’t always notice how many songs have been played. My apologies to anybody that I affected.
Good evenings entertainment and I can understand why they are winning lots and lots of awards.
Danish Electro Pop singer and performer Karen Marie Orsted performed a stunning set as the support act for Years and Years at the Swindon Oasis venue. She was very very good and interacted with the audience really well and she was (or appeared to be) quite happy me being up close to take images.
I would definitely go and see her again.
The Swindon Oasis was packed out within minutes of the doors opening for the concert of The 1975. Some people had been waiting since 8 in the morning to watch their favourite band.
Now I have to admit it is not my favourite type of music but they put on a very good performance which was quite impressive. The only thing that spoilt it was the group punch up that took place up stairs in the break. But hey ho, that’s rock and roll baby …..
Friday evening I spent a very pleasant evening photographing UB40 at the Oasis in Swindon. There was a packed house and of course the audience sang along to all of the songs they played. They were well worth going to see and photograph and I really enjoyed it and listening to comments by others I think everybody else did as well.
Last night James Bay played a concert at The Oasis in Swindon. It was excellent. He sounded exactly the same live as he does on cd/radio etc. really good quality. The lighting was also really good (although as usual first three were not as good as the rest of the lighting show). The Oasis was absolutely full with all tickets sold and James Bay worked the crowd like a seasoned pro.
All in all an excellent gig.
