All Time Low - Plus You Me At Six Headline Tour - O2 Arena, London - February 14th 2015 Live Review


This super band mash-up tour was one of the highlights of 2015 so far. After being announced in August following their performances at Reading Festival last year, the two bands, along with support act Walk The Moon, almost tore the O2 Arena apart on Valentine's Day.

All Time Low - Plus You Me At Six Headline Tour - O2 Arena, London - February 14th 2015 Live Review

Opening the tour was Baltimore band Walk The Moon. Walking out on stage to 'Circle Of Life' from Disney's 'The Lion King', the crowd began clapping instantly. The multi-talented lead singer spent the set not only singing, but also playing synth and percussion alongside the band's drummer. During the song 'Jenny', Walk The Moon had the whole crowd jumping and repeating the line, 'I'm not gonna take it from you, I'll let you give it to me'. The band seemed to have quite a big following, with a lot of the crowd singing the words and even those who didn't know who they were still enjoyed the performance and were up dancing and jumping. Their newer song 'Shut Up And Dance' was the most popular by far and, as expected, the whole crowd shut up and danced. After covering the Killers' 'All These Things That I Have Done', Walk The Moon closed with 'Anna Sun' - one of their most popular hits.

A motion picture introduced All Time Low and soon after they stormed on stage and started the set with 'Love Like War'. The whole stadium was on their feet, and when the band started 'Lost in Stereo', the crowd went crazy. Just four songs into the set, a woman had taken her top off, lead guitarist Jack Barakat had at least three bras dangling off of his mic stand and exclaimed that he had had 'sexual interactions with at least 30% of the crowd'. However, it seemed as though they were not aware of how young some of the children in the crowd were as their excessive sexual references, innuendos and statements started to cloud their performance. Nevertheless, the band had the whole crowd singing along. 'Weightless' was the highlight song of the night for them along with 'Therapy' which had the stadium lit up with people's phones. The band quickly noticed if the crowd started to get too rowdy and acted instantly when there was a casualty, ensuring the stewards helped get the young girl who was injured to safety. Having signed their first record deal in 2004 on Valentine's Day, the band welcomed a group of their fans in the crowd on stage with them during 'Timebomb' to show us all just how grateful they were for everyone's support over the years. 'Barakat' had the most energy of the whole set and although they all seemed to burn out a little towards the end, in their final song, well known hit 'Dear Maria (Count Me In)', they came storming back to life with full energy.

Post O2 Gigs, Pharrell Is On Top Of The World And Not Sweating The Small Stuff


Pharrell Williams Robin Thicke O2 Arena

I love Pharrell almost as much as I love that giant mushroom hat and after he produced the biggest hits of 2013 AND 2014, it’s likely that you do too. The multi-talented producer/rapper/musician/songwriter/mogul capped off his UK spree with a tell-all interview with The Independent, which basically covered everything from Robin Thicke to the aforementioned hat. The latter is apparently a  a vertiginous version of an old Vivienne Westwood design. After it made its debut at the Grammys in January, it’s definitely earned the title of Hat of the Year.
