London: British singer Foxes has broken the world record for the most live concerts performed in 12 hours in different cities.Â
The 26-year-old singer, whose real name is Louisa Rose Allen, has made her way into the Guinness World Records book for the string of shows, which she undertook to raise money for cancer charity Trekstock.Â
The series of seven gigs kicked off at the University of Southampton Students’ Union, before she headed to Brighton, Guildford, Reading, Oxford, High Wycombe and London, travelling between venues in the new Citroen C1, which she claims has encouraged her to pass her driving test.
After breaking the record, she said, “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.Â
“I’d like to say a huge thanks to Citroen 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.”Â
In order to make it into the record books, the “C1ty to C1ty” shows had to be located a minimum of 50km apart, with each performance lasting at leas 15 minutes.Â
During her sets, the Grammy-Award winning singer sang fan favourites including “Youth”, “Glorious” and “Let Go ForÂ Tonight”, and was supported by a different upcoming act at each venue.
