Johnny Marr @ The Academy

There is sold out and then there is SOLD OUT, the latter applies to this Johnny Marr gig in The Academy on Wednesday, what an incredible show by the guitarist who has played in some of the biggest (and some of my personal favourite) bands to date! The Smiths, Modest Mouse & The Cribs to name but a few, there aren’t too many bands that Johnny hasn’t collaborated with at one time or another.

Here are my photos of the night for state.ie, you can read Desmond Traynor’s review of the gig for state over here.

Simple Minds @ The Olympia

Simple Minds played two sold out shows in The Olympia this week.  It was an absolute treat for the ears and eyes with the beautiful stage lighting, the rockers played for an astounding 3 hours!
