The Vamps are currently gearing up for their world tour and yesterday, the guys let us know they want us there each step of the way with their first Vamps World Tour video on YouTube.
The first installment in the “series” was from James McVey. In the video, James shares all of the hard work that happens before the crew even gets out on the road. The band had been practicing for two weeks before the video was film and the guys still had a couple more days of practice after filming and before tour.
James also talks about the band’s experience in Bahrain. The guys had never been to the country before and never in their wildest dreams imagined that they would be lucky enough to be able to. While there, they had a fantastic time.
See what else James had to say in preparation for the tour in the video below.
The Vamps head out on the road this Friday. They will be kicking off the tour at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.
Cody Simpson took over Vevo this afternoon and answered plenty of fan questions. He chatted about his new record label, tour, movies and more.
One fan asked, “What kind of surprises will be on your next tour?” To that, Cody replied he wasn’t sure about surprises but one thing was for certain, that he would be performing true and honest music. He said he is going to pull back on the production side of things and really just focus on the music. He also shared that he is hoping for a couple of surprise guests here and there, but he said he didn’t want to make any promises.
During the #AskReply sesh, Cody was also asked who one of his favorite artists at the moment was. He shared that there isn’t just one, but right now he is studying “a little blues guitar.” We’re hoping to hear that in his work! As for every day listening there is Donovan Frankenreiter, Sublime and Bob Marley.
Cody was still on the air as of 12:30 p.m. ET, so be sure to tune in as soon as possible.
