The Vamps quit T-Live for gig with Selina Gomez
A band booked to support chart-toppers McFly has pulled out – because its members had a better offer in London with Disney star Selena Gomez.
The Vamps were due to support McFly at the T-Live event, which is being held in Telford Town Park, on September 7.
Organisers of the event in Telford Town Park announced today the band was pulling out for "reasons out of our control".
But as the news broke, The Vamps members were revealing online that they were "excited" to announce they would be supporting Gomez at the London Hammersmith Apollo instead.
Telford & Wrekin Council, which is organising the event, today said it was now working hard behind the scenes to find a replacement for the band.
Council leader Kuldip Sahota said: "Obviously we realise that fans of The Vamps will be disappointed but the circumstances were completely beyond our control.
"Everyone will still get a full value concert at T-Live and we are working hard behind the scenes to line up an alternative act to take their place, which we hope to announce shortly."
Fans of The Vamps spoke of their disappointment on their website after the announcement the band was booked for Hammersmith Apollo on September 7 and 8. Many had bought tickets for the T-Live specifically to watch the band.
Headliners for the T-Live will be McFly, who will be supported by Stooshe, Loveable Rogues and local bands Madison and The Making plus the new act when it is announced.
The concert, in the QEII Fields in Trust Arena, is set to be the biggest music event ever staged in Telford and Wrekin and so far tickets, costing up to £35, are still selling steadily.
Anyone with tickets to T-Live is now able to purchase car parking in advance for the event for the cost of £3 from Telford Shopping Centre.
The tickets can be used to park at any of the Shopping Centre Car Parks on the day and can be purchased in the shopping centre from the Customer Service Desk in Wrekin Square, outside Lush, and from the Tourist Information Desk based in Shopmobility.
