Concert Pictures From Around the World
Concert pictures are captivating for a number of reasons. They capture interesting and talented singers and musicians in hi-octane moments. Some of them are dressed in dazzling outfits and even crazy hairdos. Then there are the attractive dancers dancing on elaborate stages that use cool lighting and pyro effects. Finally, there are the enormous crowds who wave hands and glow sticks! Who crowd surf, get on each other’s shoulders and in some cases bop up and down on the spot!
Every now-and-then I’ll be dredging pictures from free image depositories like Wiki Commons to see what I can come up with. It’s a pot luck affair so expect to see pop stars of syrupy songs alongside heavy metal bands and jazz musicians. The first several images that I like that happen to come up are the ones I post together.
Today’s post is an interesting if not weird mix. Hayley Williams of Paramore and Selena Gomez alongside Behemoth band member Adam “Nergal” Darski and Simone Simons from Epica. There’s a photo of David Lee Roth from Van Halen taken many years ago. Mike Dirnt, Tim Lyakhovetskiy and Mich Thomson look like they’d like nothing more than to have a jam session together. Florence Welch in a black dress and striking red hair makes an appearance hitting a high note.
