Beyond the Tracks Day Three, 17th September, 2017

We stand in a muddy field as sheets of rain fall onto our jackets and boots. Huddled together we probably look like a pack of penguins, muddy and weathered penguins. For any at a festival it is a familiar scene. Masses of people huddled together standing firm against the weather as they listen to the […]

Sigur Ros @ Manchester Apollo, 16 September 2017

Such is the interest and respect Birmingham Live has for a band like Sigur Ros, we are willing to break free of our immediate borders and travel north.  The band has not graced our city since 2005; the closest they came on the last tour in 2013, was Wolverhampton.  I don’t know what we did […]

Neil Sedaka + Jack Lukeman @ Symphony Hall, 14th September, 2017

The UK has always been somewhat of a sanctuary for a pool of American performers seemingly ousted from the limelight by the dramatic shift in appetites during the early 1960s. The likes of Roy Orbison, Del Shannon and tonight’s headliner, managed to find an appreciative audience on this side of the pond long after their […]

V Festival @ Weston Park, Sunday 20th August, 2017

After a great Saturday at V Festival Sunday had a lot to live up to. In the wise words of Justin Bieber “Never Say never.” It is perhaps an idiom that Busted should’ve listened to. The band dispensed, only to reunite in 2016 releasing an album alongside their reconstruction. For fans and band alike, the […]

V Festival @ Weston Park, Friday 18th August, 2017

Amidst the rain and smeared glitter V Festival kicked off on a chilly and wet Friday night.

Once settled in fans flooded, pun intended, into the arena to check out the nights sets. Popular DJ and […]

V Festival @ Weston Park 19th and 20th August, 2017

  In 1996 Pulp front man Jarvis Cocker had a wild idea, he desired to play two different outdoor stages in two days. Two gigs, two days, two stages. In August of that year it happened. With two stages and one tent a small festival sprung from the ground, becoming what we now know as […]
