Some bands you just know aren’t going to hang around in small venues for long. I’ll say it now. Inhaler will be headlining much bigger stages very soon – even next year. They are a band very seriously on the move.
As I missed the opportunity to see them at the Reading Festival, I grabbed the chance to shoot tonight’s show. My research told me it would be epic and difficult to shoot. And it was epic and difficult to shoot! Close your eyes and you can hear Bono’s voice when his son Elijah Hewson sings. Watch him move and he looks like Bono did in the 70s and 80s. It’s quite something. The music is good too.
It was far from an easy shoot, but as I stood there waiting for them to come on, I got the feeling that this may just be one of those gigs you look back on in a good few years, smile and say “yes I remember that one, I was there”. We’ll see.
Anyway, here are a few shots.
