How often is it that you get to photograph one of your favourite bands?
I can tell you exactly how often; pretty much never.
All that changed last night however, after 12 or so years the stars finally aligned and I was able to see the mighty Mastodon strut their stuff at the O2 Academy Birmingham. They seemed to stick to more of their expansive prog orientated material and while I do wish that they had thrown in a few more of their rocky upbeat tracks, you can’t deny how good they were still.
So I’m happy to say that Mastodon are the latest band to be ticked off my photography bucket list.
Next up: BEHEMOTH.
