Gig Review – Billy Ocean, Cadogan Hall, Bristol, 26 April 2017

I happened to be away working at a conference in Bristol when Billy Ocean’s tour stopped off in the city, and the rather soulless Cadogan Hall was a 5 minute walk from my hotel so it seemed rude not to pop in.

As far as I could tell I was the only accredited photographer and security really weren’t bothered about me shooting three songs then packing up. It actually got the point where I was thinking I should go when I finally got a friendly tap on the shoulder and was ushered out. Fortunately the light improved a little as the show went on so this was one of the last frames I got. Billy was great though, he had the whole hall in the palm of his hand.
