Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
With a summer filled with various outdoor performances and an appearance at Fusion Festival in September 2018, The Vamps have now confirmed a full UK tour for 2019. The Four Corners Tour will kick off in Plymouth on the 27 April 2019, running through to the 1 June 2018 at the Bournemouth International Centre, and including a headline appearance at London’s O2 on the 25 May.
The announcement follows their US promo tour, which has seen the four-piece perform on some of the countries biggest TV shows, and precedes the release of their new Night & Day (Day Edition) album on Friday 13 July.
Night & Day (Day Edition) is the companion release for last year’s Night Edition. The band have released various singles from the forthcoming record to date, including Personal and the more recent Hair Too Long.
The Vamps, comprising Brad Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball and Tristan Evans, released their debut album in 2014, having found initial fame recording cover versions to YouTube. Wake Up followed in 2015, reaching the Top 10 of the UK charts with the likes of Can We Dance, Somebody To Love with Demi Levato and an adaptation of Cecilia with Shawn Mendes.
The Vamps will be joined on their UK tour by pop-rock trio New Hope Club across all dates, and HRVY at selected shows.
We recently caught up with New Hope Club ahead of their headline shows at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire to find out more about new music, soundtracking Hollywood films and more. Check out the interview in full below:
