Combichrist Evolution Tour
Shot at The Arches, Glasgow. 26/06/2012.
The Combichrist tour had a pretty interesting gimmick this year. Following the Evolution theme, they played songs chronologically from all the albums, starting with just two band members on stage then having more coming in to build the sound up as the show went on, with the production and lighting building up to match. Unfortunately for us photographers this meant the first three songs had the worst lighting and hardly any of the band on-stage. While I’m not unhappy with the pictures I got, they don’t reflect the overall feel of the show as much as I’d like. It’s also frustrating actually being there, being finished shooting but watching the lighting improve and seeing potentially awesome photos play out before you without being able to capture them. As a fan it was a great show though.
