FM - Manchester 9th March 2012
March 20, 2012 • Leave a Comment
The day before my weeklong tour with The Union I went up to Manchester to see FM in concert. As usual it was a fabulous show by FM, ably supported by Romeo’s Daughter, played to a full house.
FM are a melodic rock band who had some success in the 1980’s, but split up in the 90’s and then got back together about 5 years ago. This mini tour of theirs was to celebrate 25 years of their debut, and perhaps most successful, album ‘Indiscreet’, which they performed in its entirety during the show.
I had a photo pass, but there was no photo pit and the crowd were packed into the hall like sardines, so I had no hope of getting anywhere near front centre stage. Instead, all these shots were taken either from the back of the hall (camera held way up over my head), or from in front of the speakers at the side of the stage (good job I have good earplugs).
Given the difficulties of the shoot, I think these came out quite nicely.
