The Vamps tipped to knock Ed Sheeran off No.1 ahead of Edinburgh visit

Ahead of their visit to Edinburgh and Glasgow tomorrow, young British band The Vamps have been tipped to knock Ed Sheeran from the top of the album charts, where he has been for a phenomenal 14 weeks.

The Vamps will be meeting fans and signing copies of their new album Night & Day at HMV Glasgow Argyle Street at 12 noon tomorrow (Tuesday 18), and HMV Edinburgh Ocean Terminal at 5pm.

Night & Day, the band’s third album, is currently ahead of Sheeran’s Divide and has taken the No.1 spot on the Album Chart Midweeks, as announced by the Official Charts Company today.

Calvin Harris, Haim, Roger Waters, Jay Z and many more have all failed to topple Sheeran, but the four-piece are excited at the challenge of getting their first No.1 album and knocking their good friend off the top spot.

The Vamps commented: ‘It’s crazy to be challenging Ed for the No.1 spot! We know it’s going to be super close but we can never doubt our fans and the dedication and perseverance they show!

“We can’t thank them enough for helping us get the number one spot in the first midweek. It really means the world to us!”

On top of the incredible UK success, Night & Day has also stormed straight into the Top 10 on the iTunes chart in over 20 countries including Argentina, Philippines, India and Australia.

The Vamps recently completed another sold out UK arena tour and are back around the country for signings this week in Birmingham, Glasgow, Edinburgh and Kingston.

Later this year, they perform at V Festival then continue their world tour taking in South America and Asia from September.
