Travis @ The Olympia

“It’s easy to forget that Travis were once one of the biggest bands in Europe, winning Brit and Ivor Novello Awards in the late ’90s and even headlining Glastonbury in 2000. But bands like Coldplay and Keane stole their mid-paced radio thunder during a period of inactivity following a near fatal swimming accident by drummer Neil Primrose. Travis failed to make up the ground they lost to these and other bands as the next generation rebelled against the four-finger G sound of Britpop. A series of patchy albums followed before Travis eventually took time to, as Fran Healey explains, “rock out with the little people.” – Stephen Byrne –

Laura Mvula @ The Olympia

What an absolute pleasure to shoot the sold out Laura Mvula gig @ The Olympia last weekend, one truly amazing show.

“She chats, giggles and even manages to sing with a wide smile during the more uptempo tracks sitting behind her red keyboard. Earlier tracks like ‘The Morning Dew’ and new track ‘Let Me Fall’ are both received well by the crowd. The latter consisting of live violin, double bass and keys with a sound inspired by African rhythms – Karen Lawler –

Ellie Goulding @ The Olympia

Ellie Goulding @ The Olympia Theatre with support Charli XCX and Matthew Koma.

“Following a sweet, breathy rendition of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’, a couple at the front of the stage call out for Ellie Goulding’s attention; they have a message for her that she can’t quite hear. “What… you got engaged, congratulations!” The happy news is greeted with excitement by the audience and is celebrated by the keyboard player who jokingly starts playing the wedding march. Ellie seems honoured to witness the surprise announcement.” –
