Daley Showcase


Back in July last year I wrote about Daley and I was supposed to see him last September. So I was definitely bumped out when I heard the concert was moved (to effing 6 months later), because he had a better gig in London (okay, I do understand that a sold out O2 in London is a bit more exciting than little Vega in Copenhagen…)

In all my madness, I wrote Daley a message and surprisingly I got a reply too 😎

Well to make a long story short, I returned my tickets. Who plans for anything that far ahead? But he happened to play in Amsterdam again (since the original showcase there was also cancelled) during the Easter break and my sister was so nice to get me a ticket (dank je :D).

The showcase was great, it was small and intimate. Sometimes you could hear a penny drop, because everybody was so quiet, in the positive sense of the word though. Daley is a great artist and I hope that he’ll be able to turn his free mixtape into a great commercial success with his first album.

I wasn’t really impressed by my own photographic skills during the VETO concert in Aarhus, everything kept being too blurry or too dark. So I digged into all I could find about concert photography and below is the result. I think I still need some practice on it, but also be more daring and move around in the public to catch some different angles.








What do you think about the pictures?

    Your pictures are awesome!!! I love the lighting and detail of Daley’s movements…Oh how I wish I had this collection! From your article, he sounds really sincere about the cancelled concert. I think he more than made up for it with a personal apology to you. Shows he’s a really nice guy! That’s why I have his mixtape and can’t wait for the full CD when it hits stores! Thanks for sharing your article and your pics! BTW…love, love, love his cover of “Climax”! That boy is good!! <3

      Thank you sooo much, it means the world to me!! I’m really anticipating hir debut album too, but I just hope he can live up to his mixtape and won’t get too much of a commercialized sound!

        I believe he’ll stay true to his sound and overall flavor. I’m excited to hear “Days and Nights” and what that whole sound will offer. Thanks for responding! Once his cd comes out, we’ll have a lot more to talk about!
