5 May 2017
Support from Sabrina Carpenter, The Tide and New Hope Club
The Vamps recently announced their world tour plans including a big run of UK & Ireland arenas, including a date at Echo Arena Liverpool on 5 May 2017.
The Vamps believe in giving back to their fans with the lowest arena prices in the industry so every fan can see the tour. This includes 30,000 tickets at £12.50 plus booking fees and 80% of the tickets are under £25. The show features support artists The Tide and New Hope Club, and a big special guest to be announced soon.
The production on this tour is going to be their best yet, featuring a gigantic stage with runways and ramps that will take the band to all parts of the arena floor. The staging will also feature 2 pits; the ‘Wow Pit’ and the ‘Brad Pit’. The Wow Pit is a semi-circle standing pit located directly at the front of the stage, that will be surrounded by additional stage ramps. The 2nd pit called the ‘Brad Pit’ will be located at the end of the main runway, where the band will come further out into the crowd to play and interact with their loyal fans. A great line up of special guests will also be announced soon via social media.
The Vamps new third studio album is due for release next year and they recently released their brand new single, the brilliant All Night, with Norweigan House DJ Matoma. All Night is already storming the charts and the airwaves and was challenging for the #1 spot earlier in the week. The single is out now, and is available on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify. Co-written by The Vamps with DJ Frank E (Madonna, Jason Derulo), John Mitchell (Enter Shikari) and Danny Majic (David Guetta), All Night glistens with future-facing beats and a juggernaut melody at its heart.
Since The Vamps burst onto the scene in 2013 – debuting at Numbers Two, Three and Two with their first three singles (Can We Dance, Wild Heart, Last Night) – the four talented young musicians have barely stopped. Their debut album, 2014’s Meet The Vamps, was another smash, followed 18 months later by their second album, Wake Up. Within those first two years, the band had sold out London’s 20,000 capacity O2 four times, not to mention multiple world tours visiting over 25 countries.
The Vamps are Brad Simpson (Vocals, Guitar), James McVey (Guitar), Connor Ball (Bass) and Tristan Evans (Drums).
Please be aware that the floor area for The Vamps is a mixture of standing and seating zones. The arena floor is flat and this combined with the mixture of children and adults occupying the seated zone and the standing zones on the floor may lead to viewing restrictions for younger fans. If you have concerns that this may obstruct your view or the view of a member of your party, we would advise you to book tickets in the tiered blocks (1-18)
No under 14s are permitted in the standing zones. All under 14s must be accompanied by an adult.
Standing on the seats is strictly prohibited.
