I’m finally back photographing live music. Brilliant! Radio 2 Live is currently on tour around the UK and for the England leg, Steps were in Manchester with Sara Cox. Fans of the band entered a ballot to be part of a select audience for the live show at the O2 Ritz. Thousands more can now watch online.
I joined the band during pre-gig rehearsals to get a feel for the light and the choreography. Then it was on with the show, hosted by Sara. Needless to say, the audience were already really excited to be there. On-stage, Steps were super cheery and that just topped up the feel good vibe of the event. Perhaps inevitably, things overran a wee bit so I had to work fast at the end to get my shots in. In the end though, there were no issues. The whole thing was just a really positive experience. Thanks to Sara for just being the same, lovely normal person you hear on the radio and thanks as always, to Loftus for getting me involved.
