Since their formation in 2012, British pop rock outfit the Vamps have quickly captured the hearts and minds of fans around the world with their upbeat sound and boyish good looks. The band's animated live shows match the chipper mood of their recordings, and frontman Brad Simpson's infectious energy never fails to get fans pumped up on party-worthy tracks like "Can We Dance" and "Last Night". Hot on the heels of their 2014 debut full-length Meet the Vamps, the boys will treat ticket buyers to another round of unforgettable performances on tour with Austin Mahone.
In 2011 guitarist James McVey and singer Brad Simpson became friends via YouTube and began writing songs together. After recruiting bassist Connor Ball and drummer Tristan Evans they formed the Vamps and began uploading catchy cover songs to the web. The band quickly became a sensation as their YouTube views skyrocketed into the millions, and before long viral fame gave way to chart success. Their 2013 debut single "Can We Dance" landed at No. 2 on the UK Singles Chart, and was quickly followed up in 2014 with the Top 3 hits "Wild Heart" and "Last Night". Those wildly popular singles propelled the band's full-length debut album Meet the Vamps onto the charts in 10 countries and landed them supporting slots on tour with Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and the Wanted. Already an established live presence in their native UK, the Vamps will treat US fans to their buoyant live show on tour with Austin Mahone in summer 2014.
