The Vamps Play Vinopolis for Teenage Cancer Trust
Last night, The Sun newspaper opened the doors of The Great Halls at our partner venue Vinopolis to 300 teenage fans of heart-throb band The Vamps for a special charity concert.
With only a few days’ notice, our resident AV specialist at Vinopolis Nigel Letheren worked with the band’s designers to create lighting and sound installations in accordance with the band’s guidelines.
The boys played hits from the upcoming album Wake Up! in tribute to Thomas Ayad, the band’s French product manager and his colleague, Marie Mosser, who died in last month’s terrorist attack at the Bataclan Theatre in Paris.
Proceeds from the gig were donated to the band’s charity of choice, Teenage Cancer Trust. With long-standing connections in the music industry (The Who’s frontman Roger Daltrey is an Honorary Patron), the trust creates specialist treatment units which bring teenagers together to be treated by teenage cancer professionals.
