Three Amazing Live Shows In September

September wasn’t a bad month when it came to live music with two large O2 Arena sized shows and a small slightly more unusual show.

The month began on Tuesday 12th at the O2 Arena where I saw John Legend, now this isn’t the usual artist I would go and see but there’s something about Mr Legend which makes me smile. His voice live is just as impressive as it is on record and the whole arrangement of show and tracks chosen was perfect. I’m not an emotional person when it comes to music but when he played ‘All Of You’ the hairs stood up on my neck and it really was magical.

Exactly a week later I headed back to the O2 Arena for the Foo Fighters one-off show to celebrate the arena turning 20 year’s old. The show was incredible and despite not hearing much of the new album the songs sounded great and I am very happy with the heavier sound of music from them. We did end up having to leave a bit early meaning I missed my favourite┬átrack ‘Best Of You’, but the band played for 3 hours straight and when it hit 11.15pm we decided it was time to call it a night. They’re a band I love and I know are great live and they didn’t disappoint.

On Thursday 21st I headed into Islington to a venue I hadn’t been to before (The Assembly Halls) to catch my favourite trio of ladies, The Lounge Kittens who were opening a slightly unusual show. As per their set was great, full of high energy and plenty of sing-a-longs, just what you want for a Thursday night. The main event was Jaret Reddick from Bowling For Soup doing a tour which was half acoustic tracks and songs, and half chats and stories about him, his life, the band and about the tracks played. It was so chilled and a really insight night which showed that his voice is actually amazing.

    It looks like you had a lot of music in your life in September. I love concerts as well but I haven’t been to one in ages (if you don’t count Adele at the Wembley Stadium this summer).

    Wow, what a wonderful month of music and live shows for you. I would really love to see John Legend. I’m so pleased to hear that his voice is just as impressive live and it makes me want to attend a show even more.

    Ah the Foo Fighters will be amazing! I haven’t been to a gig in ages. I’m waiting for Lights to drop European tour dates and I’d love to see Kendrick but I doubt I’ll be able to get tickets.

    Totally jealous. I would love to see Foo Fighters ! I would go to any of them though. The last show I went to was the Counting Crows, and I loved every second of it!

    It most certainly looks like you have had lots of fun attending these events.I have not heard of these bands but maybe I am the wrong generation.
