Foy Vance

05 December
Join Foy Vance and Guests on 'The Wild Swan World Tour 2016' - Second date added due to overwhelming demand!

Due to overwhelming demand, Foy Vance has added a second Belfast show at The Ulster Hall to his 'The Wild Swan' world tour! The second show, on 5 December, goes on-sale on Friday, May 20 at 10am from Ticketmaster Outlets and Ulster Hall Box Office.

Foy Vance knows how to write a song. It's a naturally-born but dedicatedly-finessed skill that has led him to collaborate with artists as diverse as Plan B, Sheryl Crow and Rudimental, synced his music on multiple TV shows ranging from Grey's Anatomy to the finale of Sons Of Anarchy, and caught the ears of some of the biggest players (in every sense) in music, from Elton John to Ed Sheeran.

Now, with the impassioned, rootsy, rousing The Wild Swan - an album that makes nods to, and takes cues from, proper heroes ranging from Noam Chomsky to Ziggy Stardust to WB Yeats - the pair's relationship moves to another level. Sheeran has signed Vance to Gingerbread Man Records, the label he launched in 2015 with Jamie Lawson and his self-titled, chart-topping debut album.

Vance's rich, rich voice also gets up close and personal on the hymnal 'Burden', then digs deep for 'She Burns', a song and a performance evocative of Bruce Springsteen's 'Tunnel Of Love'.

There are other, equally deeply felt glories too, like the ancient-but-modern 'Be Like You Belong', Vance's soulful rasp weaving through pedal-steel and simple piano chords, or 'Ziggy Looked Me In The Eye'. The latter is a piano-based, strings-buoyed soul-stirrer that compresses anthemic cri de coeur into four minutes of dignified tribute to, says Vance, "various people who I think have been part of a revolution. I'm not talking about Che Guevara or Ghandi or even Russell Brand for that matter - I'm talking about personal revolution. I like that idea constantly revolting against your own parameters."

Standing Room 16+ Only. Under 16s to be accompanied by an adult.
