When Sticky Fingers were last in town I went along to the Hifi and shot them for AAA Backstage. I was familiar with a few of their songs but did not imagine that i'd be walking into the most packed out room i've ever seen, filled to the brim with so many different types of people!
I was sitting down the very front of the barrier with my fellow photographer friend Markus at one stage, and whilst we were talking I turned around to see that before the band had even come on that the crowd was going absolutely psycho and security had to jump in to calm everyone down. Now i've been to a few gigs with rough crowds but this one was definitely the most unpredictable and crazy that I had seen, I was convinced that they were going to push the barrier over they were that psycho!
Besides being terrified it was probably one of the best and most enthusiastic atmospheres i've ever seen at a gig. The incredible lighting matched with the pitch perfect performance from the band made me realise just why the fans were acting the way they were. 10/10 gig for sure.
