It was all about the Boys Last night! (and my nieces!)
We were invited by new Brit pop indie band :PM to come have a chat with them before their support slot last night with The Vamps and the lads really didn’t disappoint, fun, chatty and just really grateful to be getting the opportunity they are, you’ll be able to read out full interview with them in the Pride edition out in June…..so back to last night…..
:PM opened the night to a full SSE arena they got the crowd going with screams, cheers to their energetic performance of their tracks “Grown ups”, “Feel like and fool” and new Single “Driving me Crazy” all of which are available to stream on Spotify look for “:PM”. If we were to describe the boys sound we would say think Blur meets Bieber with a hint of the Arctic Monkey but only purely down to their accents and being from the same part of the UK.
It was then on to HRVY a British internet CBBC teen sensation with millions of followers and views of his music videos, he worked the girls in the audience into a frenzy with a mix of covers and his own original material along with 2 very slick female dancers.
To follow on New Hope Club took to the stage in support of The Vamps for a 2nd tour still grafting away building their fan base in anticipation to their first headline gig in London in June.

The final support act of the night was American internet teen sensation Jacob Sartorius, who has millions of followers from around the world and is a big deal in the States, with his command of the stage, strong drum beats he proved a hit with the Belfast Audience.
It was then time for the main act “The Vamps” who we interviewed last year while they were in Belfast on their last tour. In true Vamps style they had the entire arena jumping, bouncing, cheering and singing along to their hits “all night” “ Hands” “Middle of the night” and new single “ Hair too long”. There were a few technical and human glitches within the show but the lads made light of it and laughed it off and got on with the show.
I earned serious uncle points for bringing the nieces along this time after being in the dog house for not bringing them last year when I interviewed the boys and reviewed the gig. Both girls bopped and sang along loving life. The lads put on a fun family friendly show and I recommend their shows to anyone with nieces, nephews or their own kids to go along, it’s just as fun for the adults!
