I chose to mark the Royal Wedding by toddling off to the LG Arena and photographing N-Dubz. Any regular readers will know this was yet another night of shooting bands I don’t like musically, but you deny just how massive the hip-hop trio has gotten recently, so I was definitely a curious spectator. While his band is massive, band member Dappy is not – in fact he’s really rather short. I know this because I walked past him on the way in. he was taking time out to meet a bunch of fans who were waiting near the tour buses more out of hope than expectation I would have thought – Dappy met all of them, posed for pics and gave out hugs – nice one Mister!
I’d arrived early in the hope of shooting the support act, Professor Green. However, we weren’t allowed to shoot the supports so I killed time at the Box Office with Andy Watson and Danny’s Concerts captured by letting Jason Sheldon entertain us with non-pc Royal Wedding jokes, and much fun we had too! once N-Dubz came on it was pretty good to shoot, lush arena lighting, three interesting characters to shoot and a nice big photo pit. very little to complain about really…here’s my pics
That’s it for N-Dubz, still don’t like their music much but they are a great outfit to photograph!
