IO Earth live review - Crescent Theatre, Birmingham
Venue: Crescent Theatre, Birmingham
IO Earth's extended family gathering.
Over the May Bank Holiday weekend, the IO Earth ‘extended family’ gather in Birmingham, where the band are staging their annual hometown celebratory weekend. Saturday had seen an acoustic concert in St Paul’s Church, but the showpiece event is this Sunday show. Almost 500 fans from as far afield as Scandinavia, America and Mexico, have filled this beautifully-appointed theatre, to witness a performance which will see the band augmented by a four-piece horn section and a string trio comprising cello, viola and violin. Tonight is clearly far more than just a regular IO Earth gig.
