If you know the vamps then you will have heard about their small tour that has recently just ended, called “UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL”, that they did to promote their new album “Night And Day”, before it came out.
I went to the Birmingham show. I was so shocked by the new songs, they were just incredible! I think they were a slightly different style to what they have done before but i absolutely love it! They are all so catchy and we were all singing along to the choruses of the songs straight away. Shades on is my favourite at the moment, we had all actually heard this already as they sang it on their Middle Of The Night tour in May. Yes i did have my sunglasses on whilst jamming to this song! I wasn’t the only one i promise!
I then went to the London show as well, i had VIP for this one. We actually got stranded in Northampton on the way to London as there was some ind of accident and they had to stop all trains from that station onward. BUT, it was okay! I met some LOVELY people at the station that were also going to the Vamps, that i can now call my friends, i can’t wait to see them again! We had to get a taxi to the next nearest train station, which cost nearly £40! urgh, it was split between 6 of us though. We got to this train station 4 mins before the next train to London which was lucky! We literally had to run across this bridge to get to the right platform!
We finally got to London at about 11:45 after setting of at about 7:30am, it was a nightmare! Me and my friend Livvy spent most of the day in London doing touristy things as usual, before heading back to the venue to meet back up with our new friends.
We went to the venue getting lost on the way and having to get the others to come and meet us, of course we didn’t know that there were 2 stations with the same name, luckily they weren’t toooo far apart haha! The next disaster started when they told my friend Livvy that the 02 priority queue would start later and to wait at the front of the venue not near the other queues such as the VIP and seating ones. It got to the point where i was already in the venue as i had VIP, and the concert, the support act, TAKE, which i LOVEEE! had already started and she was still outside!!! because none of the people that were meant to be organising, knew what they were doing and it turns out there wasn’t an 02 priority queue like they had told us there would be, earlier.
The VIP started around half 6! We all had to queue in this small room that was actually upstairs above where the concert would take place. We queued along the back of the room against the bar waiting for the boys to come in.
The boys were so lovely, they took quite alot of photos when they took them. I too some and sometimes they asked to take one which was fun :’) They also all smelt great if anyone wanted to know haha. I’ve met them a few times before but these have all been at signings for albums and books and stuff. They all gave such great hugs it’s like they just wanted to meet us all for longer and didn’t want us to leave.
I think it was not very rushed, but it came to the point where the boys were waiting for me to move on, to meet them, as people had gone so quick past each of them, where as i was actually trying to speak to them as well which was so nice. So they all ended up photo bombing each others pictures with me which was great haha.
Someone’s beautiful Fan Project:
The concert was insane!!! I never get bored of seeing The Vamps! I haven’t missed a tour! also these 2 girls did a fan project which was BEAUTIFUL!!! They had everyone hold up signs they had created with the lyrics to “Paper Hearts”, when everyone was holding them up and they were singing the song i was honestly crying. I was right in front of James on the front row, and he asked me to hold it closer so he could read it, the look on all of their faces when they saw everyone holding up was just incredible and I’ve never seen them so happy. It was honestly so beautiful.
After the show we hadn’t realised the time and had already missed the train we had booked for 9:43 the Birmingham one had finished around 10 past 9! so we thought that would be okay! We all ran in the pouring rain after the tubes, to get back to our train station and made it in time for the 10:30 train but a woman stopped me and Livvy and told us to buy new train tickets, we literally had £0 left after all the taxis and tubes we had to get, and the train was leaving in about 30 seconds! Had to argue with her a bit and luckily Liv still gets away with child tickets so she said because 1 of you is under 16 i’ll have to let you go! oh my gosh this was the most eventful day i have ever had going to a concert or event!
