VOXI partners with YouTube phenomenon Chicken Shop Date for the Hot Sauce Tour

VOXI, the UK’s first mobile offering dedicated to customers aged 29 and under, has collaborated with Amelia Dimoldenberg and her hit YouTube phenomenon Chicken Shop Date. VOXI and Amelia will take the show on the road for the first time with The Hot Sauce Tour, a unique YouTube series supported by three live music gigs across the UK.

The Hot Sauce Tour follows Chicken Shop Date CEO Amelia on a journey across the country as she uses VOXI’s Endless Social Media to finally find love, whilst recruiting some of the UKs hottest artists for a series of special high-octane gigs. The tour will see events take place in London, Manchester and Birmingham in early 2019, showcasing the incredible music talent the UK has to offer. It will also include some unexpected surprise cameos along the way.

VOXI gives customers who want unlimited data for social media[1] and the latest smartphones the freedom to buy a phone[2] without being tied into a long mobile contract.  Customers also have unlimited calls and texts along with free roaming in 48 European destinations at no extra cost. VOXI SIM only plans work on a flexible monthly subscription with no contract; you’re free to change, pause or cancel your plan whenever you like.

Chicken Shop Date, which has now amassed over 150,000 subscribers and 18 million views, awkwardly combines romance, grime and rap artists and fried chicken. The series, which has become a cultural sensation attracting an avid youth audience, sees Amelia in the hot seat with a range of dates from across the music scene, from Kurupt FM and AJ Tracey to Ghetts and Maya Jama, all in a chicken shop.

Watch out for more information on special cameos and find out more about The Hot Sauce Tour, including performing artists, on VOXI’s social media channels in the coming weeks. For further details please visit  www.voxi.co.uk.

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely. Meanwhile, the Vodafone Foundation’s work with researchers at Imperial College is developing personalised cancer treatment using the processing power of smartphones.
