British singer-songwriter, Foxes, and CitroŽn's C1 are taking on a Guinness World Records title attempt for the 'most live concerts in 12 hours in multiple cities'.

The title attempt will see Foxes drive from C1TY TO C1TY in the C1, performing a schedule of seven live concerts, at seven venues, in 12 hours, with proceeds raised from the ticket sales donated to the youth charity Trekstock, who support young adults affected by cancer.

The C1TY TO C1TY record attempt will take place across the South East of England on 27 May. Starting in the city of Southampton where Foxes grew up, the tour will involve a 250-mile journey in a new CitroŽn C1. The route visits 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. In addition to a fundraising target of £20,000 via ticket sales, CitroŽn will also gift the record attempt vehicle  a C1 Airscape Flair VTi 68 S&S  to Trekstock to further boost the charity's fundraising.

Louisa Rose Allen, who performs under the stage name Foxes, said: "I've always thought it would be amazing to be a Guinness World Records title holder, 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."

Tickets for each of the intimate live gigs are on sale now and can be purchased at http://trekstock.com/foxes-c1ty-to-c1ty.
