I live near the Tate Modern on London's Southbank, and was wondering past, on the way home from work, when i noticed this gig was in full swing.
There were some pretty big names playing over two days, all acoustic sets. I only caught the last few acts of day two.

Im not a gig photographer (no, really :) but im glad i was able to capture these guys close up (and for free)

I was standing right at the back for this one. It was getting a bit "cramped" down the front by now.

#1: Nice, but I'm not sure about the background: If you'd moved a bit to the left, it would have been all around him.
#2: Mic in face just a bit too much, and I'd try to crop of the bit of arm of the 2nd person.
#3: Nice shot, even if it's basically a pretty standard "long lens shot". Moment and expression are good, as is the lighting (for a daytime show). My only nitpic: The very centralized framing (defendable in this case) and the position of the white telephone…

Thanks for the comments, and I agree with all of them.
Moving slightly to the left was not an option. I was shooting from the front of the audience, so it was pretty muuch packed solid. I was getting a bit fed up with not being able to move more central but I had to take what I could get.
I did try and crop the arm out of #2 (these are all crops) but I felt it looked a bit odd having the hand that close to the edge.
Point taken about the last one, and I've cropped the bottom off. Hopefully it looks better.
These were all just processed in Lightroom, I try and avoid Photoshop if I can help it, so editing is a bit more limited compared to what can be achieved in PS.

Does this work better? I realise his hand is out of focus but at least the background is less distracting.

Ive also just noticed the LR5 Export bug has hit this shot. Its noisier than it should be.
Oh well, hopefully this will be sorted soon.

Love number 3 man. Really nicely composed and the long lens really helps.

From an audience position these are good, on Tinie Tempah shot could you not try to clone the arm out instead of cropping
