The Vamps and Citizen Four Perform at Sold Out Gramercy Theatre In NYC

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!

The Vamps Are “Hoping For Snow” In New Video

The Vamps are getting their holiday festivities started early with #Bradvent (we love their creative Holiday names) and Brad, Tris, Connor, and James are all hoping for snow in their new music video!

The heartfelt song is stripped down and is perfect for your Holiday present wrapping soundtrack.  We love Brad and James’s voices against Tristan’s lighter drums in the new video.  It’s been a year since we’ve seen The Vamps and we sorely miss them but this twinkle lit acoustic video eases our hearts.

Watch the video for “Hoping For Snow” below.

Grab a copy of “Meet The Vamps – Christmas Edition” on iTunes or Amazon if you haven’t already!

The Vamps Premiere “All Night” Video

Our favorite Brits are back with a brand new video for their latest single “All Night” and the video is super cool!  The Vamps teamed up with Matoma for their latest single that’s causing a splash with fans for a good reason.  This song is very different from The Vamps we’ve come to love but Brad, Tristan, James, and Connor are growing up and so is their sound.  “All Night” showcases how musically versatile these guys are!

The video concept was a simple one, follow the band on a typical off day from tour including bike riding, skateboarding, and shooting some hoops with friends.  The catch here – the point of view changes each time someone fist bumps or high fives someone else.  Trust us, it’s way cooler than it sounds!  Watch the video for “All Night” below!

Be sure to pick up a copy of “All Night” on iTunes or Amazon now.

The Vamps Drop “I Found A Girl” Video

The Vamps just released their latest single and the music video for “I Found A Girl,” from their sophomore album “Wake Up.”   The track, featuring Omi, is by far one of the catchiest on their album.  Brad, Tris, Connor, and James find their female counterparts and teach them to everything they need to know about being in The Vamps from dodging teddy bears thrown on stage to meeting fans after the show!  Watch the video below!

The Vamps Throw “Wake Up” Release Party In NYC

The Vamps played one final show for the year at Webster Hall in NYC, in celebration of the release of their sophomore album, “Wake Up.”   The show was one big party from start to finish, as Brad, James, Connor and Tristan played tracks from the new album along with their hit singles.  The energetic crowd knew every word and shouted and danced along with the band all night.

Near the middle of the set, the band announced they were going to do something “they’d never done before” as Brad moved from the stage to a box in the middle of the crowd.  He then played a solo, acoustic, unplugged rendition of “Shout It Out.”   It turned into a nice, intimate singalong for everyone.

It’s hard to believe The Vamps first headlining show (ever!) was in NYC nearly 2 years ago.  They’ve come a long way since then as a band – they’ve sold out the O2 Arena in London, gone on full arena tours around the world all while still remaining their silly selves and good friends.

The Vamps are fun to watch live because of the incredible energy they bring to every show.  They added in new instrumental parts to songs that displayed their musicianship and ability to keep their show fresh every night.  The guys even rearranged their hit song “Last Night” into a rousing and fun filled ska song that had the entire audience on their feet.

Near the end of their set, the band took time to do a Q&A with the audience answering all their fans’ burning questions from what’s their favorite pizza topping (Con likes chicken) to what song means the most to them (Brad said “Coming Home”).
