The Vamps are already set to take 2015 by storm, with their first arena tour kicking off in April, which will see them headline shows to over 150,000 fans across the UK and Ireland’s largest cities, including a date at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Friday April 24.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Saturday, October 18.

The Arena dates come hot on the heels of their 2014 leg of the tour which saw the band play to a sold out Sheffield City Hall in September.

This will be the third time The Vamps have played the Arena, following their debut back in March when they supported The Wanted on tour. They then revisited us in July when they performed as part of Hallam FM’s 40th Birthday bash, Summer Live!

The Vamps will be joined on tour by Union J and other special guests.

The four-piece announced the arena dates on a TwitCam direct to their fans. The Vamps have urged their fans to buy tickets immediately for this exciting tour when they go on sale on the 18th October as it’s sure to be a quick sell out.

Their album Meet The Vamps debuted at no.2 in April and has been a permanent fixture in the UK top 20 albums chart for an impressive 5 months.
