Seattle-based photographer John Lill shares some of his best concert photos of 2013.

2013 has been a banner year for my concert photography. I moved to Seattle after three years in San Diego and was determined to make the most of living in one of the greatest music scenes in America. I’ve managed to shoot in almost every venue over the past seven months and have been fortunate enough to shoot some of the most amazing artists including many on my bucket list such as Paul McCartney, Black Sabbath and local favorites, Pearl Jam. Below are my personal favorites from 2013.
