Foxes & Citroën Scoop Guinness World Record Title in Aid of Trekstock
Foxes and Citroën have successfully completed a Guinness World Record™ title attempt for the ‘most live concerts performed in 12 hours in different cities’. The title attempt took place with the goal of raising money for the hugely worthwhile cancer charity Trekstock.
The record-breaking series of gigs was completed on 27th May at House of Vans in London. View the video of the record-breaking day here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DfujVugtiS8
The C1TY TO C1TY Guinness World Record title achievement saw Foxes perform seven live concerts at seven different locations in the UK in only 12 hours, with a New Citroën C1 used to travel between the venues. The concerts also included an exclusive debut performance of Foxes new single ‘Body Talk’, which is due to be released in the UK on 24 July.
The title attempt included Grammy Award winner, Foxes, using a New Citroën C1 to travel from Southampton, where the singer grew up, via Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford, High Wycombe and on to the final concert in London. It began at 10.00 at Southampton University Students’ Union.
Guinness World Record detailed that in order for the attempt to be successful, each of the seven concerts had to be located a minimum of 50km from the last, the performances had to be a minimum of 15 minutes in length and the entire attempt had to be completed in the space of 12 hours.
Foxes performed favourites including ‘Youth’, ‘Glorious’ and ‘Let Go For Tonight’, and was supported by a different up-and-coming local band or singer at each venue, with all support acts being managed by YouTube hosts Popshack TV.
The grand finale gig at House of Vans in London Waterloo finished at exactly 22.00 and the Guinness World Record title was presented to Foxes on stage by an official Guinness World Records adjudicator.
Foxes, who has been learning to drive thanks to Citroën, completed the Guinness World Record title attempt with a New Citroën C1 Airscape Flair VTi 68 S&S to journey from C1TY TO C1TY. The New C1 completed the 250 mile route between the seven venues with fuel to spare. The New Citroën C1 used by Foxes for the record attempt will be gifted to Trekstock to further boost fundraising for the cancer charity.
Foxes commented; “It’s been amazing to see this challenge through to the finishing line. It’s been a long day, but I’m so excited to be able to say that I’m now a Guinness World Records title holder. I’d like to say a huge thanks to Citroën and my team for making this become a reality. After taking the New C1 from C1TY TO C1TY, I’m more determined than ever to pass my driving test and get out on the open road.”
