Editors @ o2 Academy, 19 October 2018

It’s a misnomer that Editors are a Birmingham band as none of the members, past or present, hail from Brum. The original line up met whilst at Staffs University and they lived in Moseley and cut their teeth in their formative years playing the Jug of Ale and the Flapper and Firkin. Therefore we claim them […]

Editors @ Town Hall 4 March, 2018

After negotiating the maze that has become Birmingham City Centre, I finally arrived at the Town Hall. I’ve never been to a gig here so was very interested in embracing this experience. It felt a very civilised affair from the start, almost like going to the theatre with a seat in the circle and a […]

Manic Street Preachers + Editors @ Genting Arena, 14th May 2016

For Manic Street Preachers tonight was the 20th anniversary of the commercially successful Everything Must Go album. The Genting Arena was not quite full at the start for Editors and their dark, moody and hypnotic performance. Singer Tom Smith makes a quite eerie character and plays the role with ease.  The crowd thoroughly loved it […]

Editors are back. Our Ian Dunn captured their recent gig at the o2 Academy for Birmingham Live. When a fan discovered a new track ‘No Harm’ hidden on the current Play It Again Sam compilation and shared it with the world, the first fruit of the band’s recording sessions in the remote Western highlands of […]

Editors + British Sea Power @ O2 Academy, Birmingham – Saturday 16th November 2013

En route to tonight’s near to sell out show, it suddenly dawned on me that this is as close to a homecoming show as Editors get. Rather selfishly, my feeble brain starts to calculate, with some dread, the length of the inevitable congregation of parasites -me included- scrambling for guest list tickets. Sure enough, it […]

Editors + Victories at Sea + Swim Deep @ HMV Institute, Birmingham – 27th June 2012

I always seem to get a sense of anticipation when Editors do a “hometown” gig. They seem to up their game in front of the Birmingham crowd and tonight was no exception. This was the second of two (sold out) nights that were the only UK dates that they were playing this year. It was […]

Editors + Fujiya & Miyagi + The Strange Death of Liberal England @ Birmingham Academy, 30th March 2010

The date is September 10th 2009. The Dome nightclub of old has been transformed into Birmingham’s newest live music venue Birmingham Academy 1, 2, and 3. On that first opening night a local band known as the Editors were given the honorable task of cutting the ribbon so to speak. Fast-forward six months. Editors return to […]

Editors + Wintersleep + Airship @ Wolverhampton Civic Hall – 25th October 2009

I was extremely apprehensive coming to this gig. I have been a big fan of Editors since before they were even called by that name and every time I had seen them they had blown me away apart from once. I was one of the few that managed to get to see them the previous […]
