Gig Review – Kylie Minogue, Manchester Academy, 1 April 2012

  I’d wanted to shoot the Monday show at Hammersmith rather than travel half the length of the country but I couldn’t get a pass. I also figured that in such a small venue, even though we were shooting from the back, it would be far closer than at Hammersmith so I’d get great shots. Wrong!

A 400 mile round trip and 3 songs later, I was really quite disappointed with the shoot. The light was average at best and we were barely higher than the crowd, so I have plenty of lovely shots of peoples’ arms blocking our view of tiny Kylie.

Let’s hope there are some better photo ops later in the year. I felt like an April Fool myself by the time I’d got home!
