Live: Elbow – Phones 4U Arena, Manchester

Argggh finally got to shoot at the venue. Double whammy as it was a band that I dig the music of.

Along with Apollo in Manchester, Phones 4U Arena (Manchester Arena) is a venue I’ve been to on several occasions to go see some of my fave artists over the years. Just two nights prior I had seen Justin Timberlake live there. To have one of my shots up backstage at the venue is an amazing feeling, to shoot there was incredible. Here’s hoping it’s the first of many.

Fellow mancunians, Elbow, had a show at Phones 4U Arena this Wednesday night just gone. The guys 6th studio album The Take Off & Landing Of Everything recently charted at #1 in the UK charts.

Having met frontman Guy Garvey briefly before, it was kinda strange to shoot him at a live show!

Awesome evening though and one I won’t forget in a hurry 😉

Here’s a set of shots from the night shot for Local Wolves Magazine.
