15 October 2011 – Tonight I photographed The Revival Tour which was, without doubt, my favourite show that I have been to in all the years I have worked in the music scene.
I had been looking forward to this show since it was announced earlier this year because it included some of my favourite artists, that I have followed for years, so I had a feeling that it was going to be special.
The Revival Tour is basically an acoustic collaboration between a few musicians and the line up included Brian Fallon (The Gaslight Anthem and The Horrible Crowes), Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Dan Andriano (Alkaline Trio) and Dave Hause (The Loved Ones). Not only did it feature these guys but it also included Ian Perkins (The Horrible Crowes), Joe Ginsberg, Jon Gaunt and a few other friends.
The show felt extremely intimate and I am pretty sure I speak for everyone there by saying that I felt a part of something truly special. The show was well thought of and every one of the artists on stage seemed excited to be a part of the 3 hour show.
I shot a lot of photos … way more than normal so I definitely cannot post all of them but I thought that I would post a good amount non-the-less (more than normal) to try and give a feel of the show.
If any of the guys perform near you then do make sure to get down to their shows. All amazing musicians.
