Rihanna ★★★★

SECC ,Glasgow

23/11/11 

This. Gig. Was. Amazing.

Rihanna really knows how to put on a good show. With Calvin Harris the supporting act and with her countless stunts such as playing the drums in the middle of the audience, the crowd were nothing less than hyped.
Songs from her early career such as “Pon de Replay” and “SOS” were full to the brim with energy. And her most recent chart toppers including “Umbrella” and “S&M” had the crowd singing along to every word.

I honestly never expected her show to be that good.


The Vaccines ★★★

SECC, Glasgow

8/11/11

Supporting The Arctic Monkeys

I wasn’t expecting much from them this time considering their substandard performance due to illness at the ABC previously this year, however I was nothing short of impressed.

Playing hits from their only album including “Post Break Up Sex” and “Norgaard”, The Vaccines were on top form this time round and definitely knew how to get the crowd hyped.

A smaller venue would have probably been better for this gig, and for the fact I could have gotten a better view of Freddie Cowan 😉 , however supporting The Arctic Monkeys was clearly a great move for them.

If this great standard can be maintained, then its safe to say we will be hearing a lot more from this London based band in the years to come.

Great gig.


Arctic Monkeys ★★★★

SECC, Glasgow 
8/11/11 

First time I’ve seen The Arctic Monkeys live and they were nothing less than amazing.

Alex Turner captured the crowd in Glasgow on Tuesday night with his outstanding guitar skills and overall gorgeous looks. The all standing arena really added to the buzzing atmosphere as songs such as Thunderstorm, Mardy Bum and Black Treacle left us leaving with ringing in our ears and smiles on our faces.
The change of genre within their newest album revealed that Alex Turner is now being compared to the likes of James Dean and this certainly proved a hit with the younger generation with a great mix of old and new materials to encourage all ages.

Despite some bitch throwing beer over me during the encore , It was an overall great night.


Katy Perry ★★★★

SECC , Glasgow
3/11/11

Katy Perry wowed the crowds in Glasgow once again with her fun filled, high energy California Dreams Tour. Despite over 15 outfit changes, numerous video intros, a human slot machine and even an Elvis Presley impersonator throughout this theatrical stage performance, Katy Perry ensured she still had fans hanging off her every word.

Allowing fans on stage to dance along side her, with one lucky boy “ginger boy” even being chosen to kiss katy up on stage. Songs such as “Teenage Dream” and “California Girls” really got the crowd going and “Not Like The Movies” brought out Katys raw acoustic talent.

It was an all standing gig so smaller kids may not have got the best view and I personally would have liked to have heard more acoustic style songs being played ,but all in all the gig was amazing!
