The New Citroën C1 and British singer-songwriter Foxes are taking on a Guinness World Records title attempt for the ‘most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities’. All proceeds raised from the ticket sales will be donated to the charity Trekstock, who support young adults affected by cancer.
The attempt will see Foxes drive from c1ty to c1ty in a Citroën C1, performing a gruelling schedule of seven live concerts, at seven venues, in 12 hours.
Taking place across the South East of England on Wed 27 May 2015, it’s all in aid of youth cancer charity Trekstock, whose patrons include Mark Ronson and Liam Payne from One Direction.
Starting Foxes hometown of Southampton, the tour will take in Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford and High Wycombe, ending with a grand finale in London at the House of Vans, Waterloo. Foxes will perform a 15 minute set at each venue, accompanied by support acts. The Brighton stage of event sees Foxes perform at Concorde 2 12.30pm.
In addition to a fundraising target of £20,000 via ticket sales, CITROËN will also gift the vehicle Foxes will use to travel between venues, a stylish C1 Airscape Flair VTi 68 S&S, to Trekstock to further boost the charity’s fundraising.
“I’ve always thought it would be amazing to be a Guinness World Records title holder,” said Foxes. “So this opportunity was just too good to miss. The pressure is on though as I’m fitting in all the preparations for the record attempt around studio sessions. It’s really exciting, but of course the main aim is to raise money for Trekstock, which is a fantastic charity.”
Citroën and Trekstock’s collaboration with Foxes comes at an exciting time for the Grammy Award winning artist, who has recently started a course of intensive driving lessons, with help from Citroën, to get her up to speed ahead of the record attempt. Her second album will be released later this year.
Tickets for each of the intimate live gigs are on sale now and can be purchased here.
