Beth Gibbons

Picture this Beth Gibbons being pulled back on stage @ Vredenburg Utrecht.

At the end of the gig she decided to take a walk around in the concert hall. The security guard was looking concerned when she did this. This is the moment when she got back at the stage and was pulled back on stage.

(born 4 January 1965, Exeter, Devon, England) is an English singer and songwriter best known as the singer for the British band Portishead.

Early life

Gibbons was born in 1965 in Exeter and raised on a farm. At the age of 22, she moved to Bristol to pursue her singing career and began singing locally. There she met Geoff Barrow, who would become a longtime collaborator in Portishead.


With Adrian Utley, Gibbons and Barrow released the first Portishead album, Dummy, in 1994 and have produced two other studio albums, a live album, and various singles in the years since. She has also collaborated on a separate project with former Talk Talk bassist Paul Webb, also known as Rustin Man. In October 2002, they released the album Out of Season in the United Kingdom. The album peaked at #28 in the UK Albums Chart. It was released in the United States a year later.

Leuke actieopname. Ze kijkt wel ietwat benauwd. Ze zal toch niet even stiekem geknepen zijn door één van de fans hè.

Groeten, Jack

Zal wel wat meevallen Jack wat ik erg leuk vond om te zien zijn al die camera's die dit vereeuwigen kijk maar eens goed. Het lijkt wel alsof er niemand meer naar een concert gaat zonder camera.

Die security guard keek wel heel bezorgt toen ze haar rondje deed door het publiek.

Groeten, Erik

Hi Erik, a great shot considering the difficult lighting. I like this, well done. Cheers John.

Hiya John you certainly got right the light conditions are constantly shifting from very bright to very dark. I took a lot of pictures but most weren't satisfying. So great you Like this.

Regards, Erik

I like the atmosphere of this picture, especially the lighting and the image of people reaching up with their photo cameras.
