Tyler Hilton and Kate Voegele VIP Live! / SECRET SHOW STORIES

I few weeks ago, before my exams, I took an evening off of revision to go and see two of my favorites. Originally, I found them through One Tree Hill but I have loved them ever since, especially since they started releasing their own music and touring together. Of course, it's the one and only Kate Voegele and Tyler Hilton!

I had a VIP Meet and Greet ticket so I got the opportunity to meet them, talk to them, take pictures with them and they were even kind enough to sign my autograph book and ticket. They were so much fun and even with the technical issues, they were so funny and down-to-earth! 

I would just like to say thank you so much for the best night of my life! 
I didn't realise how petite Kate was or how tall Tyler was! 
A final group picture with some friends I met at the event!
I love that even though they had over sold on tickets, they still made us feel that we weren't rushed and took the time with each and every one of us. I can't believe how nervous I was meeting them. It was crazy. I dropped my cards twice then shoved them in their faces before even introducing myself and hugging them. they were so sweet though. Tyler insisted that he's seen me before and all I could say was 'I wish!' haha. Oh how embarrassing. He probably recognised me from Twitter or Snapchat or Instagram or something...

They are seriously the kindest, sweetest and most darling pair; they didn't rush anyone and they let us all take the time we wanted.


Their supporting act was incredible and the most amazing supporting act ever, Gabrielle Ross. Wow! No joke...she literally blew me away. I fell in love with her voice by the first chorus of the first song. I've followed her on all the socials and I just know she's quickly going to become a favourite of mine.

She was even kind enough to meet people after the show and she was the sweetest. She wrote me such a sweet note and we took this awesome picture with her adorable Instagram prop!

How gorgeous is she!

Kate and Tyler sang great. Tyler's voice is just so pure and rustic whereas Kate comes off very shy because her voice is quite quiet. I think it would have been a little better if her microphone was turned up a little more and his down, but honestly, their performances themselves were actually flawless.

Amidst technical issues they were hilarious and made the breaks so enjoyable, especially when Kate's guitar has a slight glitch!



I love these signed cards that I got! I will treasure them forever. Thank you so much guys :)

Overall, they were incredible! In future, I wouldn't recommend getting a VIP ticket because it defintely wasn't worth the extra £35. We got one acoustic song and a quick chat but I couldn't see the performance at all because they had oversold the tickets so it was a massive group, I managed to listen the vocals a little but because it was so quiet it was barely legible. Also, you could actually meet and have a picture with them at the end of the show, which was nice for everyone else but made me think, why did I bother with buying this ticket in the first place?! Also, considering we were the VIPs, I think we should have let into the stage area first but instead we were at the back of the queue so we didn't get the best view. having spoken to someone who came to the event last year, she said it was better organised, intimate and they had a much better view.

The only other downside was that it was very badly lit stage so the pictures were incredibly hard to get and a lot of them have smoke on them.

P.S. Due to this fact I've included the following pictures from the professional photographer at the event.
