I have never seen The Forum as busy as it was on first show on The Gang of Youths Say Yes to Life tour.
For a Sunday night the vibe was filled with energy, the crowd stood ready for the first note as the band took the stage.
The tour manager let us into the photo pit 30 seconds into the first song and it was on, the pit filled with about ten other photographers including one dick that was standing at the front center of the stage with his camera held in the air shooting like the rest of the punters with their phones.
The colors of the show were mainly red and blue, a bit of a nightmare for us but we made it work, A mad stage presence really made the night.
After the first three songe we were kicked from the pit as usual, I circled around to the back of the venue to get a crowd shot and I was met with a murky blue light and a story from front man David Le’aupepe about the reviews of their last gig at The Forum.
All in all this was a great show with heaps of energy and a mad stage presence, the lighting made me work to get my shots, but it was a good challenge, I cant wait for the next Gang of Youths show.
