‘Eighth Plague Tour’ – Wembley Arena, UK

Last weekend was my first show back in the photo pit since maternity leave. What a great return to live show photography it was too! I was shooting for Terrorizer at Wembley Arena, London, for the ‘Eighth Plague Tour’ – Darkest Hour, Devil Driver, Bring me the Horizon and then Machine Head to headline. Obviously I can’t show you all the pics but here’s a few sneaky ones. The rest will be in the coming issue of Terrorizer Magazine. It was a blast!

Still, me being a stubborn me bought some pro earplugs and went on my way to France – after all I had it all booked and wasn’t going to miss out.

I initially was to write a diary-like entry on here but didn’t want to bore you all with my drivel.

What a nice welcome :) • Friday I shot – Voivod, W.A.S.P., Anthrax, Papa Roach and Down • Hung with Parkway Drive who are awesome dudes. I think they used their meal tickets […]
