Nine Inch Nails @ Birmingham LG Arena – 18th May 2014

Tonight is the first date of Nine Inch Nails‘ UK tour, which takes in some of the biggest venues the band has headlined in this country so far. And it’s a show some of us never thought we’d even see! Only a few years ago, Trent Reznor announced an indefinite hiatus and many feared the […]

Miley Cyrus @ Birmingham NIA – 16th May 2014

Ben Harper @ Birmingham Symphony Hall – 29th April 2014

Ben Harper is one of those artists that is pretty big in most parts of the world, and I’m talking a triple Grammy Award winning, multiple number one album in multiple countries kind of big!

Alkaline Trio + Bayside + The Murderburgers @ Birmingham Institute – 24th April 2014

Alkaline Trio have been around for 18 years. Having only gotten into the band in the last few years, I’m relatively new to the party but it’s not hard to see why they have had such a massive, committed fan base.

Opening up for Manchester Orchestra tonight are Sydney five piece Gang Of Youths. Having recently been featured in NME’s ones to watch in 2014 and touring with artists such as Vampire Weekend, they certainly have something to live up to.
