The Here and Now Tour is in its 10th Year. The line up this year wasn't too bad; A Flock of Seagulls (well Mike Score), Pepsi and Shirlie, Midge Ure, Belinda Carlisle, Jimmy Somerville, Jason Donovan
and Boy George.
I was on the second row so it gave me a great vantage point (absolutely essential for good concert photography). I just used my compact Canon G11, which gave me good results for the internet but they don't tend to print very well due to the pixelation and lack of detail, something I may need to work on.
As you are probably aware, SLR cameras are usually not allowed at concerts, but judging by the security that was on that night (Saturday 25 June), I'd have probably got away with it. Never mind. The results were not bad as you can see. Look out for my Boy George Photos; I was particularly pleased with those.
My friend is a chauffeur and often picks Jason up from his home in Notting Hill. He stores his number in his phone as JD!
