Latest News, Week In Review


Imagine Dragons @ Max Schmeling Halle, Berlin

We begin this week in Berlin with steffi_5sos‘ shot of Imagine Dragons at the Max Schmeling Halle. The Radioactive four-piece played the 11,ooo capacity venue as part of their Smoke + Mirrors tour with Sunset Sons as support. Imagine Dragons won the Grammy for best rock performance at the 56th ceremony so their live shows are something to be reckoned with. They are currently on tour in the UK with back-to-back shows at the O2 in London before zig-zagging through Nottingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle before hitting Scotland and Ireland.


Killing Joke @ The Ritz, Manchester

Next up is dorisdorito‘s post of Killing Joke who stopped by The Ritz in Manchester. The band emerged through the post-punk scene and are best known for their heavy, industrial sound and Jaz Coleman’s unmistakable vocals. Killing Joke could easily tour old favourites such as Love Like Blood, sell a lot of tickets and a lot of T-shirts and call their time on the road a success. However, they are not that band. Their latest release, Pylon, is available now and has received outstanding reviews. Killing Joke have proved they are still relevant and have undoubtedly picked up one or two younger fans on this tour.


Bell X1 @ The Guildhall, Derry

Bell X1 are arguably Ireland’s biggest band behind U2 and have supported the latter in the past. After their critically and commercially successful studio album Chop Chop in 2013, Bell X1 toured Europe, Australia and America until late last year. They have just concluded their acoustic tour of Ireland with one date to come in London on 21st November. Bell X1 played an acoustic set at the Guildhall in Derry and megankelly captured the venue’s beauty in her post.


Twin Atlantic @ Old Granada Studios, Manchester

georgialitherland9721 was lucky enough to catch Twin Atlantic at Old Granada Studios as part of Budweiser’s Live Project which included nine free shows across the UK to promote live music. Tickets were distributed on a first come, first served basis and gave fans the chance to see performances from Twin Atlantic, The Wombats and Krept and Konan. Old Granada Studios, the place where The Beatles gave their first ever TV performance is a fitting venue for music-lovers.


The Bruce Band @ Manifesto, Hoorn

World2 uploaded an awesome black and white photo of The Bruce Band’s performance at Manifesto in Hoorn, Holland. If you can’t see The Boss himself then Europe’s No.1 Springsteen tribute are the next best thing! The seven-piece band consists of musicians who all share a love for Bruce’s music. They boast a repertoire of over 6 hours of his music, promising a variety in  their act and are touring their home nation of the Netherlands for the remainder of 2015.  However, The Bruce Band aren’t content with just performing live and have recorded their own takes of Springsteen’s work.
