The Vamps Wake Up Tour (Newcastle)

I don't go to concerts enough, I really don't. I've been to a few but I just love going to see live music so when The Vamps put up tickets for less than a tenner I guess I just couldn't help myself.

I've liked The Vamps for quite some time so it was easy to get into the music before the concert, I even picked up a few favourites! I would probably say that at this point I favour Cheater, Volcano and I Found A Girl but it's kind of impossible to dislike The Vamps. They write their own songs, they cover other peoples songs well and they're not as in your face as One Direction. I actually think that they're more deserving of attention than one Direction for those reasons. They really have their own sound, no matter what they sing whether they're singing their own songs or covering someone elses you can always hear their voices and styles as a band.

The Vamps have fairly good merch to be honest, I like the colours they use and it's not as obvious as a shirt covered in their faces. Anyway, decked out in our new merch T shirts we waited for the start of the show which was to be supported by The Tide, Hometown and Conor Maynard.

Both The Tide and Hometown just didn't click for me, you know when you hear a band and you just know they're going to be big? Well, that just didn't happen for me with either of those two bands. They were good but I wouldn't add them to a playlist if you catch my drift.

Conor Maynard was good though, which honestly, I wasn't expecting because I took a dislike to him when Can't Say No came out ages ago. I guess he's just grown on me, he was always good I just didn't like him as an artist. I think I've been converted now though.

I think it was at this point that I got a little hyper about the concert and I really started getting into the concert mood. Sometimes all it takes is a good support act and a little singing to get into something. At this point I was still shattered from being stranded in London the night before so I was trying to perk myself up and this kind of rewired me.

By the time The Vamps actually came on stage I was really psyched for it, I knew their main singles and I'd tried to pick up some of their lesser known songs too so I would know what they were singing so I was half prepared.

We booked these tickets on a whim and we were glad that we did because we had a good laugh! The only thing I would complain about is this chick called Amy that was sat behind me, she was annoying and a bit over top but, hey, she was enjoying herself so I won't call her too much. It doesn't mean that I didn't want to shout at her though...

On a brighter note, I really like the pyrotechnics and lights that they used for the show, they didn't go overboard with stage props or features but that just meant that I could appreciate the sound of the band more without focusing on sight.

I guess to wrap up this post I'll just say that I really enjoyed myself and and that The Vamps will make a few appearances in my playlists over the coming months. I'm going to see 5 Seconds Of Summer next week if I can get the time off so keep an eye out for that post, I got those tickets on a whim too!

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed this post. The next post should be a Glossybox Unboxing one so that should be a change of pace. You guys have been bombarded with lifestyle post after lifestyle post recently and this blog has turned into a diary... Well, until next time! Bye!

  6. I don't go to the concerts enough too, but I'm really sad about that, because that's really amazing atmosphere when you go there and you're among people who love something as much as you do! I want to go to The Vamps live too and will be happy if you can go with me again and share such bright emotions.
