Vance Joy (James Keough) got his start in 2013 playing local gigs around his native Melbourne, Australia. His debut EP God Loves You When You're Dancing featured the triple platinum single "Riptide", which peaked at No. 1 on Australia's Triple J Hottest 100 and No. 6 on the ARIA Singles chart.

Joy has opened for Of Monsters and Men and Julia Stone, played major festivals, and been praised by critics and fans alike for his humble demeanor and profound music. The singer-songwriter's earnest lyrics and catchy uke-filled melodies will have fans in high spirits during his pitch-perfect live performances.

The indie sensation has a voice that’s both smooth and gritty, and it shines on heartfelt fan favorites like "Riptide" and "Play With Fire". Whether he's crooning alongside a full band or showcasing his guitar and vocal chops solo, Vance Joy doesn't disappoint on his must-see tours, treating fans to rousing performances of tracks from his EP God Loves You When You're Dancing.
An amazing show, opening act Joe Botts set the rhythm, and Vance came through with a very generous 1.5h of both older and newer songs that had normally staid audience dancing in the aisles. Great concert!

Vance Joy was awesome. The musicians were spot on and super in a supportive role. I fell in love all over again with the songs.

He was fantastic! The show really made me appreciate his newer work and I’m excited to see him again.

I really enjoyed being able to see Vance Joy live. He and his crew put on such an amazing performance!

Love Vance Joy. Great concert. Enjoyed the show very much. Venue was great.

First time seeing Vance Joy, the experience was amazing. Very much looking
