The Vamps announce free show in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust

Today, Teenage Cancer Trust and The Vamps announce a free exclusive single launch party at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire to celebrate the release of Last Night on the 7th April. This will be the first full headline London show by the teenage four-piece and will see them do a 30mins set for free! After storming the charts and hitting the Top 3 with their first two singles - debut Can We Dance and follow up Wild Heart - The Vamps have been causing a stir everywhere they go. From selling out New York’s Gramercy in minutes to picking up #1’s around the globe (including Cambodia!), The Vamps are the most exciting new band that everyone is talking about.

This will be the first time many fans will have the opportunity to see The Vamps live, and probably the last time in such a small venue. Tickets are free and the band will play for 30minutes. Fans can apply for tickets at from Wednesday 19th March. Teenage Cancer Trust and The Vamps are kindly asking all attendees to Text VAMPS to 70500 to donate £5 to Teenage Cancer Trust as well as making donations on the door.

The Vamps saw the great work of Teenage Cancer Trust for themselves when they visited and performed at one of the charity’s specialist units for young people with cancer in Leeds last November.  The same age as many of the patients, The Vamps immediately wanted to support the charity. That’s why they are also selling limited-edition t-shirts at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire show as well as launching a special Vamps Teenage Cancer Trust eBay page selling exclusive memorabilia, with all proceeds going to Teenage Cancer Trust.

The Vamps have picked up a phenomenal following online. Can We Dance has clocked up over 12 million YouTube views, Wild Heart has over 5.7 million, new single Last Night is almost at 2 million views, and their channel has already tipped 38 million total views and signed up over ½ million subscribers, which is quite an astounding achievement for a new band. They frequently trend around the world on Twitter, and their Facebook has almost 1 million likes.

Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young people with cancer aged between 13 and 24. They fund and build specialist units in NHS hospitals and provide dedicated staff, bringing young people together so they can be treated by teenage cancer experts in the best place for them. The charity also educates young people in schools about cancer to help improve the speed and quality of diagnosis. Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund their vital work. Help transform the lives of young people with cancer. Visit
