We were lucky to see The Vamps first NY show last night! It was amazing to see how much support The Vamps have in the US, especially since they only released their first single in the States a couple of days ago! Hard to believe that this was actually their first headlining show — ever! The Vamps are fresh from a string of nights opening for Taylor Swift at the O2 Arena in London, where I’m sure they learned a thing or two (like, make sure you know how long the stage is)
They gave a high energy performance and their fun stage presence had them interacting with fans and fellow band mates, even taking a moment to take selfies with a fan’s phone that had been thrown onstage. (Fangirl note: This is not a good idea, please don’t throw objects of any kind at band members. They thank you in advance.)
The Vamps opened with their single, “Wild Heart,” and played crowd favorites like “Can We Dance” and their new single “Last Night.” They also debuted some new material, and rocked covers of “Mr. Brightside” and “Cecilia”! Check out our video for “Girls On TV” below.
Opening act AJR totally won over the sold out crowd, and had the whole venue moving to their single “I’m Ready” by the end of their set. It’s incredible to see how the support for AJR keeps growing and growing! The crowd was chanting “AJR! AJR!” as the boys took the stage, and you could feel the excitement and energy in the air. We’re sure AJR made quite a few new fans last night! Their performance was amazing as usual, and we can’t say enough good things about these talented brothers.
If you missed AJR (or need to see them again ASAP, we totally get it), make sure to get tickets to their March 15th headlining show at the Gramercy while you still can! They’ll be announcing more East Coast dates soon as well.
And stay tuned for more info on The Vamps – with a warm welcome like this, we are sure they’ll be back stateside in no time.
