Review: Take That at the Genting Arena, Birmingham

Not many people in the audience were sure what to expect from a band which has gone from five to three members, but they need not have worried. The show opened early with a fantastic carnival showcase by some very talented performers, which led nicely into the opening track of the night.  Their staging for

REVIEW: Twelve Angry Men at the Grand Theatre, Wolverhampton

Proving beyond reasonable doubt how good the show really is. The scene was set – a large opaque curtain with the scales of justice covered the stage before the show began.  As the lights dimmed for the audience, the lights went up behind the curtain as the judge told the jury they had to prove

The Killers live at the LG Arena, Birmingham

1.11.2012 The Killers played their first Birmingham show in nearly four years at the LG Arena last night, providing plenty of Halloween themed fun for the crowd.
