The Vamps Middle Of The Night Tour


  • Date: Monday 1st May 2017
  • Doors Open: 7.30pm
  • Pricing: £13.75, £27.50 & £54.45

The Vamps recently announced their world tour plans including a big run of UK & Ireland arenas.  The UK and Ireland dates kick off next April 28th and wrap on May 19th 2017. The Vamps will hit the Metro Radio Arena Newcastle on Monday 1st May 2017.

The Vamps believe in giving back to their fans with the lowest arena prices in the industry so every fan can see the tour. This includes 30,000 tickets at £12.50 plus booking fees and 80% of the tickets are under £25.  The show features support artists Sabrina Carpenter, The Tide and New Hope Club.

The production on this tour is going to be their best yet, featuring a gigantic stage with runways and ramps that will take the band to all parts of the arena floor. The staging will also feature 2 pits; the ‘Wow Pit’ and the ‘Brad Pit’. The Wow Pit is a semi-circle standing pit located directly at the front of the stage, that will be surrounded by additional stage ramps. The 2nd pit called the ‘Brad Pit’ will be located at the end of the main runway, where the band will come further out into the crowd to play and interact with their loyal fans. A great line up of special guests will also be announced soon via social media.

Since The Vamps burst onto the scene in 2013 – debuting at Numbers Two, Three and Two with their first three singles (Can We Dance, Wild Heart, Last Night) – the four talented young musicians have barely stopped. Their debut album, 2014’s Meet The Vamps, was another smash, followed 18 months later by their second album, Wake Up. Within those first two years, the band had sold out London’s 20,000 capacity O2 four times, not to mention multiple world tours visiting over 25 countries. 

The Vamps are Brad Simpson (Vocals, Guitar), James McVey (Guitar), Connor Ball (Bass) and Tristan Evans (Drums).

In April of 2015, singer/songwriter/actress Sabrina Carpenter, then not yet 16, unveiled her debut album, Eyes Wide Open. Fueled by youthful exuberance and irresistibly buoyant single such as “Eyes Wide Open” and “We’ll Be the Stars,” the album reflected Carpenter’s life over the previous three years, during which she rose to fame playing rebellious Maya Hart on the Disney Channel hit series Girl Meets World.

Tickets are available online, from the booking hotline number 0844 493 6666 or in person from the Metro Radio Arena Box Office. Floor seating is unsuitable for smaller patrons.
