Hooray for the iTunes Live London Festival, which has been brightening up the summer with a whole month of free gigs. The festival is now in its third year, and has managed to outdo itself with the line-up, which includes Placebo, Kasabian, Bat for Lashes and Block Party.
It’s even generated a few headlines after Liam Gallagher was rumoured to have stormed off stage earlier this week!
However, Coxon stuck to new material, playing his concept album The Spinning Top in its entirety (bar one song). And sadly, I didn’t actually see him, as he sat down for most of the gig, putting him out off eyeshot for us short people!
But I did get to have a bit of dance thanks to indie-electro star Esser who was supporting Coxon. His singles Satisfied and Headlock were particular highlights.
Even though I didn’t hear my favourite Graham Coxon tunes, I’d still thoroughly recommend the iTunes Festival. You don’t often see big name acts for free and the Roundhouse is a great venue.
