Britain-based boy band The Vamps will return to India later this month to play at the Global Citizen Festival India, where names like Jay Z and Coldplay will plug their music chords. The Vamps, artistes of Virgin EMI UK, made their debut India visit earlier this year for a collaboration with Vishal-Shekhar for the song Beliya.
They will be coming to India on November 16. Global Citizen Festival India will be held at the MMRDA grounds here on November 19. “Global Citizen Festival is an amazing event for such a good cause and we are honoured to have been asked to be a part of it,” James McVey said in a statement issued on behalf of the band.
“We had an incredible first visit to India in August and are very much looking forward to coming back to see our fans, perform our new single ‘All night’ and our other hits at this world renowned festival,” McVey added.
Apart from McVey — the lead guitarist and vocalist — The Vamps comprises Brad Simpson (lead vocals and guitar), Connor Ball (bass guitar and vocals) and Tristan Evans (drums and vocals). The Vamps also worked on a song for Ajay Devgn’s recently released Shivaay.
The inaugural Global Citizen Festival India will see participation from international as well as Indian celebrities.
