London-based Telegram begin their 2016 UK tour this week, with the support of Vauxhall’s Vivaro on Tour campaign.
For a second year running, Vivaro on Tour will back up-and-coming British artists by giving them free use of a Brit-built Vauxhall Vivaro throughout the year.
Having already helped UK talent including Phobophobes and Life tour the country during Independent Venue Week earlier this year, the Vivaro tour van will be transporting Telegram on their 20-date UK tour across cities including Leeds, Glasgow and London.
Formed in 2013, Telegram are a four-piece indie band who have previously toured with big British names including The Horrors, Temples, Palma Violets and The Wytches – securing a broad fan-base running the length of the UK. Telegram’s tour officially kicks-off tonight, 11th February, at Nottingham’s Hare & Hounds club.
Commenting on the Vivaro on Tour campaign, Telegram said: “We are really grateful to Vauxhall for loaning us a Vivaro. We aren’t signed to a major label; we release records on our own label so there is no official support for going on tour. At club level, like every band that attempts to tour the country, we lose money. Vauxhall’s support has made this tour feasible – we’re looking forward to hitting the road in our very own tour van and taking our music around the country.”
Vauxhall will be getting on-board with Telegram and other up-and-coming British bands this year to follow their journeys, provide exclusive backstage access and capture on-tour shenanigans. Stay tuned by visiting www.vauxhall.co.uk/VivaroOnTour.
