Who – The Arkells, Frank Turner
When – February 10, 2017
Where – FirstOntario Centre, Hamilton, ON
Hometown heroes, The Arkells, return to Hamilton for their biggest gig ever. This was their first area headlining concert and what a show it was. From a frenzied sold-out crowd, to a fantastic lighting show to a pumped up band who was giving it their all. This was a show not to be missed. On top of that Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls kicked the night off with their own brand of dynamite. Canadian Beats was happy to be there and bring you this photo review.

I shoot live music performances and concerts. I love the excitement of entering a venue, knowing that I’ll be photographing a concert and enjoying the energy of the crowd. There’s nothing like being in a venue and looking at the expressions on the faces of people who are all transfixed by the talent onstage. I shoot about 120 shows each year, averaging 2 bands per show, as well as several all-day and weekend festivals in and around Southern Ontario. From the large venues to very small ones, bright lights or barely lit stages, I hope that my photos capture the enjoyment the artists have in doing what they love to do.
