Last time we saw the multi-platinum artist and local favourite on our shores was April 2016, during his Fire & The Flood tour.

Plus, Vance has confirmed that Gretta Ray will be joining him in both gigs as the support act! The young indie-pop singer has had a pretty intense year herself, after winning triple J’s Unearthed High competition.
The indie star’s journey towards fame
With his real name being James Gabriel Keogh, Vance Joy takes his name from the Peter Carey novel Bliss! His track “Riptide”, released in 2013 shows the singer-songwriter to success, with many likening his style to that of the great Bon Iver. Featuring a haunting voice, fraught with melancholy and certain sense of poetic manner, it’s no wonder that tickets for Vance Joy’s concerts are so sought after!
Having released his debut album, Dream Your Life Away in 2014, the fact remains that Vance Joy stands as one of Australia’s top exports! The ARIA award-winner joined megastar Taylor Swift as the supporting band of her 1989 World Tour, this way amassing fans from all over the world. His tune “Riptide” became viral and can now boast of being the Most Played Australian Work Overseas in 2014, closely followed by Aussie fellow Gotye. As Rolling Stone Australia wrote, “Vance Joy’s appeal lies not just in floppy hair, but in universal relatability – storytelling full of generalised tales about growing up, of love, lust and loss, motifs of ‘eyes’ and time’s passage all painted with a golden folky haze and an ever-present ukulele.”
Despite not having released an album since Dream Your Life Away, Vance Joy has consistently released chart-topping singles. First came “Straight Into Your Arms”, which soared to new heights in Australia. His 2017 world tour is named after Vance’s latest song “Lay it On Me”. The folk-pop single premiered on Triple J on 13 July 2017, and includes an accompanying music video with the likes of Wesworld celebrity Angela Sarafyan. So don’t waste a second more and buy your Vance Joy tickets now, here at StubHub and get ready for a truly amazing show, from one of the most exciting acts to come out of Australia!
