Review: The Vamps ‘Night and Day’ Arena Tour (Belfast)

The Vamps recently brought their ‘Night and Day’ headline UK and Ireland arena tour to Belfast, Northern Ireland. Keep reading to check out our review of the show – we’ve tried to avoid spoilers as much as possible!

There were four support acts: :PM, HRVY, New Hope Club and Jacob Sartorius. Each support act got the crowd prepared for The Vamps. Their performances were energetic and had the crowd singing and dancing along, before The Vamps had taken to the stage!

Following a brief interval, it was then time for The Vamps. Beginning with a drum solo from drummer Tristan Evans, members Connor Ball, Brad Simpson and James McVey joined him on stage, kicking their show off with new track ‘Staying Up,’ taken from their upcoming album, set for release later this year.

Following ‘Staying Up,’ the four-piece performed ‘Last Night,’ one of their older tracks. The first part of the track was beautifully played by Brad on the piano, and when it came to the chorus, the track really hit in, and inevitably had everyone singing and dancing away.

As the set progressed, The Vamps performed tracks from their most recent album, while performing songs from previous albums, ultimately the timeless classics that will never grow old with their dedicated fans.

During ‘Personal,’ the talented Maggie Lindemann joined the band. She also performed her hit ‘Pretty Girl’ – another crowd pleaser!

Several times throughout the set, the band acknowledged their fans’ continued support and thanked them for this.

One thing that stood out was the band’s ability to put on a fantastic live show with the use of their instruments as it showcased their talent, along with their love for music.

Connor and James performed a duet of ‘She Was The One,’ a track taken from debut album ‘Meet The Vamps.’ The band put a poll on their Twitter and fans voted for this song. Hearing the track performed live acoustically was phenomenal, and provided the opportunity to showcase the sensational rawness of their incredible vocals.

The Vamps also had several fans join them on-stage for the ‘On Stage With The Vamps’ segment of the show. This allowed for additional crowd interaction, and the fans who joined them on-stage were so lovely!

Their set was nicely wrapped up with tracks ‘Same To You,’ taken from their most recent album and ‘All Night.’

With everything from the stage layout to the support acts to the crowd interaction to their vocals, the ‘Night and Day Tour’ is unforgettable, truly a night to remember!
