on Tuesday that we just had
to go to
see them open up for the dreamy Austin Mahone that night at Pier 6 Pavillion in
We had so much fun hanging out with The Vamps at our second annual
Vine sensation-turned-star musician Shawn Mendes and the
lovely ladies of Fifth Harmony did a fab job of warming up the crowd for The
Vamps and Austin.
If you follow
Camila Cabello of 5H on Instagram, then you already know about the little
mishap that occurred during their performance. Camila posted a snippet of the
girls performing their most recent hit “BO$$” but the choreography didn’t
exactly go as planned…at least for C. She lost her balance mid performance
causing her prop chair to take a tumble. Camilla handled it like a pro and
ended the song with a bang. Props to you, girl!
The Vamps Turn Up the
Set list: “Wild Heart,” “Last Night,” “Trumpets” (Jason Derulo cover), “Somebody To You,” ”Oh Cecilia.”
Next up, our babes in The Vamps played an unforgettable set.
Fans waited with phones poised to take pics as the boys jumped on stage and into
their first song, “Wild Heart” (which definitely made our hearts go wild!).
In addition to
their super entertaining personalities, the rest of their performance was
incredible. They didn’t miss a beat and their nonstop smiles were truly
impressive. Brad Simpson is possibly the most energetic lead singer
we’ve ever seen. And when he wasn’t strumming away on his electric guitar, he was
dancing in circles and reaching out to
fans near the stage, never forgetting about those in the back.
Also included in their set was their single “Somebody to
You.” It was amazing live and we can’t wait to hear it on the radio. We’ve been
requesting it constantly. Have you?!
Their set might have been short and sweet, but we think it’s
safe to say that The Vamps made the most of their time in beautiful Maryland.
Set list: “Banga! Banga!,” “Say You’re Just a Friend,” “Shawty Shawty,” “Say My Name,” “Can’t Fight This Love,” “Shadow,” “Check Yes or No” (George Strait cover), “Human Nature” (Michael Jackson cover), “All Of Me” (John Legend cover), “Till I Find You,” “All I Ever Need,” “Next To You,” “What About Love,” “Mmm Yeah.”
After the Brits were done rockin’ the house, it was time for
the adorbs Austin Mahone to take the stage. When he did, the screams definitely
rivaled the ones heard when we saw One Direction last week… (shhh, don’t tell
Austin didn’t waste time getting his groove on. His opening
song, “Banga! Banga!” had the crowd out of their seats and on their feet. The
first part of Austin’s set was so high energy that after a few more songs and killer
dance moves, he decided to catch his breath by taking a seat and strumming out
a few slow tunes with his acoustic guitar.
Austin showed off his versatility by playing not only his
original songs, but some covers, too. He performed “Check Yes or No” by country
singer George Strait, and “Human Nature” by the legendary Michael Jackson,
managing to hit every note. After an on-point rendition of John Legend’s hit
song “All Of Me,” Austin picked things back up and had his fans dancing again.
The closer, “Mmm Yeah,” is where Austin really impressed the
crowd. Not only were his vocals on point, Austin proved to be much more than just a singer with his moves. During
this song, he was really able to hang with his professional dancers and
completely wow his fans.
