Frightened Rabbit O2 Academy Glasgow – Their Final Show

Additional Note: I started writing this Blog post back in March after I had seen Frightened Rabbit but due to a busy University schedule, I was unable to finish it. In light of the death of lead singer Scott Hutchison on 10th May 2018, this gig has now a high sentimental value and score has…

Ed Sheeran Hampden Park

Ed Sheeran is one of the hottest artists of the moment. His Divide Tour was in high demand and ticket sales resulted in many sold out arenas in a matter of seconds. I was lucky enough to land myself a ticket to his additional date at Hampden Park, Glasgow.  Having bought my ticket in July…

Morgan James Òran Mór

A frequent collaborator with Scott Bradlee and the Post Modern Jukebox, Morgan James became an artist I had to see after her YouTube success both with the group and solo. Having listened to her debut album Hunter and her latest album, Reckless Abandon, it was clear I was in for a night bursting with talent….

Nerina Pallot Òran Mór

The Òran Mór is definitely no stranger to Nerina Pallot. Returning as part of her tour for her new album Stay Lucky, her familiar face was greeted by many returning fans to hear her perform. The warm up act Million Miles was a cool blend of Alicia Keys meets Norah Jones. Her warm and soulful…

Placebo The Caird Hall

Celebrating over 20 years of a band is an accomplishment. 90’s rockers Placebo have decided to play in Brian Molko’s spiritual UK home of Dundee (where his Mother & many of his family members are from and reside). Being a fan of theirs for most of their career and missing out their SSE Hydro date…

Having been a fan since her debut single back in 2011, this gig was a must see on my gig bucket list. According to one member…

The Ultimate Recipe for the Perfect Music Gig

Reader, I have been asked on many occasions what the best gig I have ever been to has been. I will be slowly approaching near 30 gigs by the end of this year and honestly, I couldn’t tell you. Its disgruntling when I see the disappointment on people’s faces when I can’t give them a direct answer. So…

Gig FAQs

Reader, I’m a massive fan of live music and have built up an eclectic mix of artists that I have seen over the last few years in particular. I have seen sell-out stadium tours that tickets were gone in seconds to an artist who had to move his venue to the upstairs of a neighbouring pub…

Passenger O2 Academy Glasgow

Mike Rosenberg (aka Passenger) rescheduled his cancelled date from December to grace us with his presence at the O2 Academy seven months after he was due to perform and rocked up to the 2,500 capacity venue to a sell-out gig. The modern troubadour has just wrapped up his ‘Young as the morning, Old as the Sea’ tour and what a…
