Kids In Glass Houses Farewell Tour, plus support, The Institute – The Library – Birmingham, 20/10/2014Welsh rockers Kids In Glass Houses announced they would be calling it a day after 8 years of making music together earlier in 2014, and now the time has finally come to say goodbye to them on their farewell tour. They played a sold out show at The Institute – The Library – on Tuesday 20th October 2014.Doors to the venue opened at 7pm sharp, with also Welsh rockers Save Your Breath taking to the stage at 8pm to entertain and warm up the fans. They played a 45 minute set, opening with “Maps” and closing with “Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy”.The lights in the packed out venue went dim, and at 9:15pm, it was time for the boys to take to the stage. They played a short intro as they came out then went straight into “Artbreaker I” and kept fans dancing through “The Best Is Yet To Come” and “Give Me What I Want” before introducing themselves. They played a great 20 song set, playing all their hits and fan favourites. After playing “Sunshine”, the band left the stage leaving vocalist Aled Phillips with the stage to himself and just an acoustic guitar to entertain 600 people. He spoke to the crowd about how many times they have played Birmingham, then went into an acoustic version of “Raise Hell” after he encouraged fans to get out their lighters and mobile phones and to sing along. To liven things up again, the band played 3 more songs then left the stage, leaving the crowd wanting more. They returned after much anticipation to play 4 more songs, starting with “Peace” and “Youngblood (Let It Out)”. The band then went straight into “Saturday”, to which the whole room was bouncing up and down. They then went into their final song, “Matters At All”. They finished their signature song by thanking everyone for coming out to see them and for the all the support in the past 8 years.

The Vamps // Clyde Auditorium Glasgow28/09/14
The second night of The Vamps in Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium showed fans come out in their thousands to get the last chance to see them before they return next April. The sun was shining and everyone was in good spirits yet impatiently waiting for that vital moment when the doors were opened.
The Vamps brought along three support acts, X-Factor finalist from a few years back Luke Friend, Scottish singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt and English crossover rock band, EofE. Four rather different bands but the crowd soaked up each one and could sing along with each band.
First up was Birmingham lads, EofE, for such a young band they have a mature and well rehearsed sound. For only being a band for a year and a half, they’ve had massive success with their singles aswell as a 32-day tour supporting McBusted. They only had four songs but they made each song count, with an energetic performace filled with passion and a love for playing the songs. They also through in a mashup of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” and Nirvana “Smells Like Teen Spirit”, the majority of the crowd are probably too young to know the original tracks but the crowd lapped it all up. They changed the temp by performing their more ballad like single, “Piece Of You” which should that the band could go from faster paced to ballad effortlessly.
Quick turn around and former X-Factor contestant, Luke Friend, took the the stage to an overwhelming reaction from the crowd. With a massive smile, Luke took the applaus in his stride. Only playing two songs, he involved the crowd in every moment which was well received from the crowd. He took time out to speak to the audience and involve them in a new interactive app that brought him closer to the fans. As much as the concert go-ers wanted to keep listening to Luke Friend, they knew that The Vamps were just around the corner.
But before that, an insanely quick turn around, Scottish singer/songwriter Nina Nesbitt took to the stage to perform three songs. She seemed rather nervous and as if she was out of her depth but it didn’t take long for the nerves to break when the crowd sang their hearts out to her songs. Nina Nesbitt has been a massive success lately within the giging scene aswell as her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop” appearing in adverts.
It was finally time for the band everyone had been waiting for, The Vamps! The curtain fell to reveal their stage set up and a countdown on the massive screen behind the drums. The countdown ran out and their video of “Cecilia” played, which was drowned out by the screams of thousands of very young girls! Hormones were flying all over the place and didn’t take long for ears to start ringing with the eruption from the crowd. The band made their way on stage to a massive reception and the excitement was reaching fever point. Opening with their hit “Wild Heart” they didn’t hold back for a second. With each song the screams got louder and the as much as the band gave to the fans the fans gave everything back to them. They played one of their latest hits, “Somebody To You” with Nina Nesbitt taking over Demi Lovato’s vocals, which fit perfectly. The Vamps through in a couple of covers, All Time Low’s “Dear Maria”, Fall Out Boy’s “Sugar, We’re Going Down Swinging” as well as My Chemical Romance “Teenagers”. Each cover was well received by the crowd and proved to be great choices to through into the mix. For a very young band, they’re bursting with talent and enthusiasm. They actually have something they can offer and not like any of the other teenage groups around.
As the night went on the smiles got wider and the happiness was pouring out of the Armidillo. No one could leave disappointed with the performances that each act brought to the stage. All four acts are definitely worth watching out for and will bring something new and fresh to the music scene and give things a good shake up.
If you get the chance to head down to one of The Vamps shows, get yourself along for a fun night that you can have a good laugh at while feeling abit nostaligic if you’re abit older like me!
