Foy Vance to join Elton John at the Lincolnshire Showground 27 Jan

Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance has been announced as the support act for several of Elton John’s upcoming summer shows, when the pop icon’s ‘Wonderful Crazy Tour’ comes to Lincoln, Leicester, Longleat, Liverpool, Exeter and Edinburgh in June.

Vance, who last November became the second signing to Ed Sheeran’s Gingerbread Man Records was born in Bangor County Down, and developed his music by travelling around America in his youth.

Vance’s breakthrough came with his critically acclaimed second album, 2013’s Joy Of Nothing, which features vocals from Ed Sheeran on the closing track Guiding Light. Vance co-wrote Tenerife Sea and Afire Love from Sheeran’s 2014 multi-platinum album X, and also wrote Make It Rain, the Sheeran-performed series closer to FX’s hit drama Sons of Anarchy. Last year Vance co-wrote and provided the vocals on Rudimental’s hit single Never Let You Go, performing the song live with the band on Later….With Jools Holland. Elton fans will get a chance to hear why Vance is such a popular artist amongst his peers, as he opens these special shows performing songs from his upcoming new album, due this Spring.


This run of UK summer dates will coincide with the release of Elton’s brand new album ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, released on the 5th February 2016.
