Capital Exposed The Vamps

400 lucky Vampette’s attended the Capital Exposed event featuring The Vamps in Birmingham at South and City College yesterday afternoon and were not disappointed.

The group, based from various locations across the UK – performed at the Secret Location to raise money for ‘Help A Capital Child’.

The quartet consisting of Tristan, James, Connor and Birmingham’s own Brad (Left to Right) captivated their dedicated fans who managed to get one of the 300 tickets available online or one of the 100 tickets won through competitions.

Although the group’s set was impressive and the crowd were entertained with the live recorded advertisements, the set was short and only three songs were played, including: ‘Wildheart’ and ‘Last Night’.

Throughout the event, fans were able to win some band merchandise, everyone received free tickets to Alton Towers and one lucky fan managed to meet the band backstage!

The band are soon embarking on their own UK tour, for which tickets go on sale on April 26th, we recommend seeing this group live, especially with a longer setlist – the lads have the talent and already have a large following to make it far!

Nothing to Lose with Emblem3!

Emblem3 wowed at their gig at the O2 Academy2 in Birmingham last night, much to the delight of their dedicated fans.

The Washington based trio came to Birmingham as part of the UK leg of their #Bandlife tour!

The group, consisting of Keaton, Drew and Wesley (Left to Right) entertained the energetic crowd with a range of songs from their debut and only album thus far: Nothing to Lose, including 3000 Miles and Teenage Kings.

The impressive set also contained a short acoustic performance by the trio, which gained a great reception from the fans, who sang along with the group’s relaxed version of ‘Riptide’.

Although the group entertained and impressed with their relentless energy and catchy tunes, much confusion was raised as no ‘special guests’ made an appearance, even though they were announced.

Plus the audience were left to wait for nearly two hours, inside the venue before the band performed.

The group, popularly known for appearing on the Second series of the X-Factor USA and making it to the semi-finals, finishing in fourth place didn’t have a large audience to entertained as they aren’t well-known here in the UK, but their eager fans made up the atmosphere considerably as the lads took to the stage.

We would definitely recommend going to see them live as you have nothing to lose when seeing this group of talented boys – they have the talent and an impressive setlist to make it far!

We’re Glad You Came, The Wanted!

After ten Top 10s, eight Top 5 singles and two platinum selling albums, The Wanted performed at their last UK show before their upcoming hiatus at the Capital FM Arena in Nottingham last night!

Jay, Siva, Max, Nathan and Tom (Left to Right) both entertained and upset (only with the thought of their adventure ending) the crowd, with a range of songs from their four year career, including ‘Glow in the Dark’ and ‘Heart Vacancy’, all while saying goodbye to their dedicated fans.

With the gig scheduled on April Fools – many pranks occurred much to the amusement of the audience, including a guest appearance from Martin ‘Rihanna’ Wright – though she sure has changed quite dramatically – the band’s ex-tour manager.

The band’s impressive set received a great reception from the fans who waited hours to see them perform for their final UK performance – many travelling from various locations around the world.

Relentless energy from both the band and their eager fans was shared throughout the night as everyone in the arena sang their hearts out to the familiar tracks.

The fivesome’s first two Number One singles: ‘All Time Low’ and ‘Glad You Came’ rounded off the band’s amazing setlist, which kept the crowd dancing and singing the night away – we certainly did!

Like all of their fans – we wish the group all the best in the future!

We sincerely hope that the lads make a large comeback soon! Their energy and performance is relentless and entertaining and we definitely recommend them!
