Mumford & Sons @ Leeds Arena: the fairground shooting gallery

A somewhat disappointing final show of 2015.

For months, Mumford & Son's debut at Leeds Arena had been earmarked as the grand finalé of the year for me. Having shot them earlier in the year headlining Leeds Festival, I expected big things - every song laden with euphoric crescendos, usually emphasised with kick-ass lighting. It was one of those shows where no-one left without getting a killer shot.

Sadly the Leeds show wasn't going to present us with quite the same opportunities, due to some mega tough shooting restrictions which massively restricted shooting angles - hence the similarity in my shots.

On the plus side, it was great to finally see BBC Sound of 2016-nominated Jack Garratt who was the sole support for the tour. An interesting multi-instrumentalist with the charm to work the crowd, I suspect he'll be making waves next year.
