Black Sabbath in Melbourne

In April this year the mighty Black Sabbath metal juggernaut came to play at Rod Laver Arena and I was lucky enough to be there to capture the action, true masters of their craft.

From the Vault: Slayer

After hearing the terrible news of Jeff Hanneman’s passing today I found a couple of galleries of shows where Jeff was doing what he did best, making one awesome unholy racket with Slayer. Click on each of the photos below to see the full gallery from the show.

My condolences go out to Jeff’s family and loved ones. Rock in Peace.

Endless Boogie in Melbourne

I’d heard a lot of good things about Endless Boogie but I missed their last trip to Australia and there was no way I was going to miss them this time. I caught three shows in eight days (photographing two) and what I saw was nothing short of amazing – one of the best rock bands I’ve ever had the pleasure of seeing, almost a week on from the last show I’m still buzzing.

Good Friday became a great Friday with a show at The Tote! Click photo on the left below to see the full set from the show.

Then the following Friday it was back to The Tote again for another blast of rock n roll goodness. Click the picture below right to see the full photo gallery.

Iggy and The Stooges in Melbourne

I’ve seen Iggy Pop many times over the years and I’ve seen The Stooges at a couple of festivals but this show at Festival Hall, Melbourne, 27 March 2013 was by far the best – Iggy might be 65 but he came out with energy that leaves most performers a third of his age for dead. So good!

From the Vault: Dragonforce

Australia are you ready for the return of the hair, guitar, keytar and metal of Dragonforce?  They are playing Soundwave 2013 and not to be missed! These photos were from a show at The Forum, Melbourne, 25 October 2008.
