After releasing the first single for their new CD, The Vamps have set off on a new adventure to promote their newest music.
Throughout the next few months they will be travelling around Europe to play on their very own fanfests -short, small shows where they sing a couple of their new songs, some other memorable peaces of their discography and pass the micro around for a quick Q&A.
The tour started last week in Madrid and I was lucky enough to be able to attend the second fanfest in my hometown, Barcelona.
Since the show was incredibly good and I have been tweeting about it nonstop after it, I thought the best was to review my experience in my blog, so here I am.
I have to say that since I hadn't been that lucky the last time they came to Barcelona, I was really nervous and excited to see them live, but I managed to gather my emotions and get to the venue, where my friends were waiting for me, already on the line -which, by the way, was way larger than I had expected.
Anyhow, we spent the whole morning talking to everyone and meeting other fans who were just as pumped as we were for the show and, after a couple hours, they finally opened the gates and let us in the concert hall; afterall, the hours of wait had been absolutely worth it, because we got such a good spot, which was fairly close to the stage.
Once everyone got in, the magic started. Well, not really. Before they actually came out, a DJ was on stage playing music, which wasn't that bad, but we couldn't wait any longer to see them perform.
After about fifteen minutes of good music and people shouting, Brad, James, Connor and Tristan finally stepped on the stage.
|I deeply apologize for the quality of the pictures, but neither my phone takes great shots nor I was to be bothered at that moment.|
The show lasted for about half an hour, but every single second of it was a blast.
Their live sound was amazing, their energy made the audience jump and the vibe was incredibly special.
However, it wasn't all jamming and jumping, as there was also a very nice, sweet Q&A moment, Brad got the stage to himself in a moment that I can only describe as cute and they even sang Wake up in Spanish, which was a nice detail!
Overall, it was short but intense, and I enjoyed every second of it.
But the evening didn't end there. After the show there was a photobooth space where you could pose for a Polaroid photo.
And then it was time to leave; feeling sad because it had gone by so quickly, but happy for the great experience, all the memories and the amazing people that I had met.
There's the official video from the Spanish fanfests.
