VANCE JOY ANNOUNCES SHOW AT LONDON’S KENTISH TOWN FORUM – MARCH 7th 2018
WATCH THE OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR LAY IT ON ME
Australian singer-songwriter Vance Joy has today announced that, due to overwhelming demand, he will be playing London’s Kentish Town Forum on March 7th 2018 – tickets go on general sale Friday the 18th of August @ 9am (buy tickets here). This announcement comes off the back of the multi-platinum selling artist announcing two intimate shows at London’s Omeara on October 30th and 31st. Fans are obviously incredibly eager to see Vance play his first shows in the UK since 2014 as, when the shows were announced, both entirely sold out on the fan presale alone.
Last month the Melbourne muso released Lay It On Me, his fist musical output since his hugely successful debut album Dream Your Life Away, released back in 2014. The official video for the euphoric new track features actress Angela Sarafyan from the HBO series Westworld and was directed by Mimi Cave (Sylvan Esso/tUnE-yArDs). You can watch the official video for Lay It On Me, here.
Joy’s debut album, Dream Your Life Away, spawned multiple hits including Fire and the Flood, Mess Is Mine, and the platinum selling single Riptide. Speaking of Riptide, the international smash hit song has sold over 1 million copies in the UK to date and has been streamed over half a billion times on Spotify alone. Along with being hugely popular, the song received critical acclaim in the form of being awarded the grand prize by the prestigious International Songwriting Competition, the judges giving the song a perfect score. Riptide also caught Taylor Swift’s attention, who invited the singer to join her on the road as her main support on her 1989 World Tour, which saw Joy playing to over 2.2 million people across 85 dates.
