It’s hard to believe it’s been 3 years since The Vamps’ first headlining show (ever!) in NYC, at Gramercy Theatre back in February 2014. James, Connor, Tristan and Brad have come a long way since then, selling out arenas like the O2 in London and dropping 2 albums along the way. It’s been a while since the boys have had a headlining show in NYC, and we were thrilled to see them back at the Gramercy Theatre last night!
The Vamps certainly know how to put on a high energy show – it’s impossible not to sing and dance along! The enthusiastic crowd knew and sang along to every word, including their brand new single “All Night.” Their set included songs from both albums, from “Can We Dance” to “Wake Up,” and they brought out a special guest during “Somebody To You!” Sabrina Carpenter, who is opening for The Vamps in Europe, joined the guys to sing Demi Lovato’s part.
Brad told the crowd since he’s been in America for a while now, he’d caught on to some slang. “Get ready because tonight is going to be ‘lit’ and you’re all going to get ‘turnt up.'” (Imagine this with a British accent). The band does an excellent job of getting the crowd involved, calling out fans in the audience and encouraging them to sing along. Brad even jumped off stage near the end of the show to get closer to the fans!
At the end of the night when the band left the stage, instead of the usual “encore” chants, the crowd broke out into an a cappella version of “All Night.” Their singing morphed into The Vamps coming back on to play the song themselves. It was a perfect ending that left everyone wanting more!
If you didn’t make it to the show last night, not to worry: Brad promised that they would be back “very soon” and are going on tour in North America this Summer! Stay tuned for the announcement coming soon!
Our new favorite boyband, Citizen Four, kicked the night off in style with their sweet harmonies and smooth dance moves. We’ve been singing their single “Testify” ever since. The best way to describe it is 🔥🔥🔥. Conner, Carson, Austin, and Josh are so much fun to watch live! They had the crowd rocking and we’re sure they gained quite a few new fans after that performance!
