Hey folks, the summer concert and festival season has basically wrapped, so we thought we would share some highlights from our photographic team. To kick things off, here are Scott Burns’ top 5 images from the summer of 2017.
We will be featuring each of our photographers in similar posts in the coming days. These are in no particular order or ranking, we hope you enjoy the shots!
One of the most fun and energetic country acts out there is The Road Hammers. I mean, these guys are always clowning around and goofing off and they are hilarious. But one thing is for sure, they are serious about their music. They absolutely KILLED IT at the Sound Of Music Festival in June. It was one hell of a might. Here is a tight shot of Jason McCoy from that amazing show. The full write up is here: http://tourbusentertainment.com/sound-of-music-2017-wrap-up/
One of Scott’s favourite artists is Peter Frampton. In fact, Frampton was the first concert Scott had ever attended back in 1977 during the blistering Frampton Comes Alive era. So it was certainly an extra special night when Scott was able to photograph one of his guitar heroes for Tour Bus Entertainment. This was taken at the Budweiser Stage in June from a virtually perfect set that Peter and his band played. Do You Feel Like We Do? Yes, Peter, we really do!

The next shot was picked by Scott because he just loved the enthusiasm that Chris Janson brings to the stage. He was absolutely having a blast and it showed. Just prior to this show, Chris was presented with a certified platinum record in Canada for Buy Me A Boat. No wonder he was having fun. But this is just the way that Mr Janson does his thang and he was a great addition to the Sam Hunt 15 In A 30 Tour.

This next image was from another one of Scott’s favourite shoots. In fact, one of the first albums he ever purchased was KISS’ Destroyer. He had seen the band play live as an audience member, but this time Scott was front and centre in the photo pit for The Bus. And we have to say, KISS certainly are all about the show. There may be nobody who can do it better. It’s larger than life and as you can see, they LOVE the camera.

This man toured the country and literally brought the house down each night. Dean Brody’s Beautiful Freakshow Tour was amazing, and he was the first Canadian country act to headline at Toronto’s Budweiser Stage. It’s such a good show and his music is great. Here is one of Scott’s shots of Dean from the Oshawa show at the Tribute Communities Centre on that tour. Full photo set from that show is here: http://tourbusentertainment.com/pics-pit-dean-brody/
