Vance Joy to join P!NK on European summer tour
Things are heating up in the Vance Joy camp, with P!NK inviting him on her 21-date European summer tour as the main support, and the singer-songwriter dropping a video for current single I’m With You.
Since leaving Australia following his local Nation of Two tour dates, Joy has played Latin America, with shows in Peru, Brazil, Argentina, Chile and Mexico.
The tour, which has totalled 83 dates globally, will wind up in Europe in November.
Australian fans see him at the Fairgrounds Festival in November and again at Falls Festival at year’s end.
The video for ‘I’m With You’ was shot in Hawaii and created by US director Mimi Cave.
They worked together on the ‘Lay It On Me’, ‘We’re Going Home’ and ‘Call If You Need Me’ videos.
The new clip follows two women through a magical landscape, with a dreamlike feel.
“These two women meet in a world that feels like the interior of their imaginations. In this place they drown-out any preconceived ideas of who they’re supposed to be or be with… they’re free from judgement,” explains Cave.
“The video depicts the idea of meeting someone that understands you in a way that feels like looking into a mirror… That someone that you can be with and say nothing — but know they’re right there with you no matter what.”
‘I’m With You’ follows recent singles ‘Lay It On Me’ (2x Platinum), ‘We’re Going Home’ (Platinum) and ‘Saturday Sun’ (Gold).
The singer-songwriter also posted on Facebook that he is fundraising for the Polished Man 2018 campaign.
“I believe we can create a world in which no child suffers from violence” Joy says.
“I’m doing this for 1 child who dies every 5 minutes as a result of violence.
“Please and support this worthy cause. With your help, we can make Polished Man 2018 the biggest year yet! Lots ‘o love.”
