2016 IN PICTURES – FEBRUARY
February began for me seeing Linfield beating Dungannon Swifts 6-0, a good start to the month.
The following weekend, I was on the road to Shamrock Park, to see Linfield lose 2-1.
Back on the road the following weekend, this time to Coleraine, with a better result, with Linfield coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
The next day, I made the most of a free ticket to see Ulster take on Scarlets. Unfortunately, the game ended up in an agonising one point defeat for Ulster.
Two days after that I headed to The Limelight to see Foxes in concert.
The month ended with me heading to Windsor Park to see Linfield take on Glenavon, a match that saw an outfield player go in goal and save a penalty.

Last night, saw the announcement of the line-up for Belsonic. It’s a bit different this year, in more ways than one.
For a start, it’s moved from August to June, and it’s now taking place at Titanic instead of Custom House Square. To be honest, i’m not that enamoured with the move to a new venue. I thought Custom House Square was perfectly fine in terms of location.
That was one of the great things about Belsonic, that you knew where and when it would be, instead of moving around every few years like Tennent’s Vital.
I remember in 2010 blogging about the expansion of Belsonic and how ambitious it was. It’s fair to say it has worked spectacularly. Hopefully, this move will do likewise, i’m prepared to give it a chance.
Looking at the line-up, There are two periods of six day gaps, which suggests there are more headliners to come. This would make it a month long event, similar to Live At The Maqruee in Cork. No offence to the Corkonians, but Belsonic has a better line-up this year.
When I was following the launch event on Twitter, and saw it mentioned as taking place in June, with no dates being mentioned, I was worried that a concert i’d want to go to would be on whenever i’m in France. Thankfully not, as it turned out.
So, of the line-up, here’s a chart for you.
FIVE SONGS BY ACTS APPEARING AT BELSONIC 2016
1. Stereophonics – Dakota
2. Biffy Clyro – The Captain
3. Ellie Goulding – Love Me Like You Do
4. Faithless – Don’t Leave
5. The Vaccines – If You Wanna
Meanwhile, talking of music events in Cork, Indiependence, taking place in a farm in County Cork announced it’s line-up, and it’s rather good. Here’s a chart from those on it.
FIVE SONGS BY ACTS APPEARING AT INDIEPENDENCE
1. The Kooks – She Moves In Her Own Way
2. The Strypes – Get Into It
3. Editors – A Ton Of Love
4. Ash – A Life Less Ordinary
5. Idlewild – American English
FOXES – LIVE AT THE LIMELIGHT 23.2.2016
It’s a great time to be a fox, with Leicester City top of the Premier League, and their musical namesake Foxes having just released her second album All I Need, hoping to emulate her footballing namesakes by getting to number one.
It had only been fourteen months since her last Belfast concert, in December 2014 (also at The Limelight), so this was a relatively quick return to the city, but she was determined to make up for last time, launching straight into Body Talk, the lead single of her second album.
The last time she was in Belfast, she did a lot of gliding. No gliding this time, but a lot of jumping and dancing. To be fair, there were a lot of songs you can jump and dance to. This was the first night of a tour, so there’ll be a bit of dancing and jumping over the next few weeks.
It wasn’t all jumping and dancing, there were even some slower ballads. It didn’t really matter, she was comfortable in either role, effortlessly changing tempo between songs.
She’s had quite a few hits, and they were all on the setlist – Youth (which she said was one of the first songs she ever wrote), Holding On To Heaven, Feet Don’t Fail Me Now, before signing off with Let Go For Tonight.
