The Vamps, Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham

British Pop-rock band The Vamps stopped off at Nottingham’s Motorpoint Arena this Tuesday, May 1st, as part of their latest Night & Day Tour.

Wowing masses of screaming teenage fans as they belted out hits like ‘Last Night’, ‘Personal’, and ‘Wake Up’ and ‘Just My Type’.

A long, but high-energy night they started off with support acts, rocky and upbeat :PM, HRVY, New Hope Club and Jacob Sartorius, all of whom set the pace for the Nottingham stop of The Vamps’ fifth tour.

Starting off with drummer Tristan pounding out the beat, with the rest of the band joining him to get the party started. The set began with familiar tunes of ‘Last Night’, ‘Can We Dance’, and ‘Hands’, before transitioning to new tracks like ‘Just My Type’ from their new album.

The night – from start to finish – was power-packed with great performances, cheeky humour and exciting audience interactions, with two lucky fans getting to meet and click pictures with the band with #OnStageWithTheVamps.

An appearance from special guest Maggie Lindemann singing a few collaborative pieces, plus her own hit, ‘Pretty Girl’, as well as covers by the lads themselves of hits like Dua Lipa’s ‘New Rules’ and Camilla Cabello’s ‘Havana’, perfectly rounded off the night.

Leaving their best for last, they sang ‘All Night’ while a shower of blue and red ticker tape descended from the skies, pouring over an elated and energetic audience.

With a long list of top 40 hits, three successful albums under their belts, and four previous tours, these lads have definitely come a long way, but it’s clear they love what they’re doing, and it seems like they’ll always love it.

From start to finish The Vamps, with their energy, humour, amazing talent and a sprinkle of pyrotechnics, prove they certainly know how to put on one heck of a show.
