Years & Years: Manchester Apollo, live photo review
Years & Years | MØ | Nimmo
April 2nd 2016
Louder Than War photographer Melanie Smith caught up with 3 piece chart toppers, electro pop band Years & Years in Manchester on their sold out UK tour. A night of electronic pop artists at the top of their game.
It has been an incredible 12 months for the band, going from strength to strength, with best selling album Communion under their belt and amassing a huge fanbase in the process. We witnessed an enormous overflow of admiration for the band, and also praise for the excellent support acts MØ and Nimmo, who warmed the crowd up nicely for the main band.
Flamboyant and quirky pop Frontman Olly Alexander appeared through the stripes of red beamed lighting and from the go get the crowd were under their spell for the rest of the evening. The high energetic theme of the show continued with their heartwarming dance anthems long after I’d emerged from the photo pit and headed home. Check out my photos from the show in the gallery below.
