Vivid LIVE 2012

Janelle Monae performs at Vivid LIVE

Sunday night closed a week and a bit of amazing gigs at Sydney Opera House for Vivid LIVE.

For the third year running i was fortunate to be shooting it officially for the Sydney Opera House.

Here’s a taste of the pictures.

Karen O in Stop the Virgens

Karen O performed her spectacular Stop the Virgens “psycho opera” with a big cast and band from New York, including Nick Zinner and Brian Chase from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.

Sadly for me, they were the only Vivid act to get photo approval on their pictures, so there’s only two of my photos i’m allowed to show. There’s loads more interesting ones that will live unseen on my hard drive.
