We photographed Ruel's first headline/ first sold out/ the first headline and sold out show at the Metro Theatre in Sydney.
It was a wild triumph and our ears are still ringing to the screams of some 1500 shrieking teenagers!
I was introduced to the heavenly Sayah; who I instantly became a fan of and am very stoked to now call a friend.
The bro, Dylan Joel who usually has a band went solo with a loop pedal and played an incredible set of new songs that I cannot wait to hear as part of his upcoming album.
Finally, Ruel came through and belted out one of the best sets I've seen in a long time. He owned the stage and left everything out there. It was incredible to watch!
Having said that, we're all super happy that Ruel made it back from his jaunt into the middle of the crowd. He made it seem effortless as he sung his way back uninterrupted, but I was definitely concerned as I watched on from stage capturing the fracas!
Special shout out to Aliesha Palermo who presented Ruel with this incredible pencil/charcoal artwork of Ruel. Amazing stuff!

I've left a lot more photos in a gallery than I usually would because I know this was a special show for many people. I hope you see an image that sparks a memory that takes you back to a special moment. Would love you guys to share and credit if you dig this.
