Foxes to support The Vamps at Access All Eirias in June
One of the most talked about artists of 2015, Foxes, aka 22-year-old singer and songwriter Louisa Rose Allen, has been announced as the main support for The Vamps at this year’s fabulous Access All Eirias at Eirias Stadium in Colwyn Bay on Sunday June 7.
The announcement follows hot on the heels of news of pop sensations The Vamps’ north Wales appearance, and will appeal to Foxes’ growing army of fans of her soaring pop melodies such as the singles Youth, which reached number 12 and featured in a Debenham’s advertising campaign, Let’s Go For Tonight which peaked at number 7, and the Zedd collaboration Clarity which made the Billboard top 10 in the US and won a Grammy for Best Dance Recording.
Already Foxes has supported Pharrell Williams on his European Tour, performed on Rudimental’s number one selling album and live with them at last year’s Reading Festival, played a number of summer festivals including V and Wireless, and even featured in an episode of Doctor Who, performing Queen’s Don’t Stop Me Now as a 1920s jazz number. Foxes – the name reflects a dream Louisa’s mum had about the animals producing beautiful noises – achieved a top five debut album, and released the pop anthem single and title track Glorious from it. She is currently working on new material which should be issued around the time of Access All Eirias.
Access All Eirias promoter, Pablo Janczur of Wales’ largest independent music promoter, Orchard, said: “Foxes is getting a lot of attention, and has already achieved a remarkable amount for such a young career. Her appearance on the bill with The Vamps makes it a really strong line up at Eirias Stadium on June 7, the day after we bring Sir Elton John to north Wales for the first time.”
The Vamps are a social media phenomenon, the four teenage boys from different areas of the UK hooking up via YouTube. Fifteen million online hits, a quarter of a million YouTube subscribers, and a major label recording deal later and the boys were stars before they released their first single.
The Vamps singer Bradley Will Simpson, guitarist James McVey, drummer Tristan Evans and bassist Connor Ball have since gone on to record five top 10 singles, Can We Dance; Wild Heart; Last Night; Somebody To You and Cecilia. They now have two sold out arena tours under their belt and their debut album Meet The Vamps won a gold disc and reached number two in the charts and the band are well on their way to becoming an international phenomenon.
In addition to staging Sir Elton John on June 6, and The Vamps on June 7, Orchard is also promoting Elvis Costello at Venue Cymru on June 7 as well.
The event is supported by Conwy County Borough Council, Bay of Colwyn Town Council, and media partners Capital FM; Daily Post; and North Wales Weekly News. Access All Eirias is also supported by Principality Building Society, which is supporting the event for the fourth year in a row.
The production has won national awards for the event organisers, Orchard and Conwy County Borough Council, the Production Partnership of the Year prize, in the 2013 National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA) Awards, while Conwy’s Communications & Marketing Team also picked up the Event Organiser of the Year award. Orchard has also won the Regional Promoter of the Year Award in the UK Live Music Business Awards against competition from across the UK.
