Northern Irish singer-songwriter Foy Vance has been announced as the support act for pop icon Elton John’s upcoming Lincoln concert as part of his ‘Wonderful Crazy Tour’.

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.
In the UK, Vance had a breakthrough moment when he collaborated with Rudimental on the single ‘Never Let You Go’, performing live with the band on Later… with Jools Holland.
Since honing his craft, as well as touring with Ed himself, Vance has toured around the world supporting artists including Snow Patrol, Bonnie Raitt. Last year he toured alongside Elton John in Australia.
On supporting Elton during his latest tour, Vance said: “I’m embarrassed to admit it but the first time I heard Elton play live was when I toured with him in Australia at the end of last year.
“To cut a long story short, I’m looking forward to getting out on tour with him again this summer, not just for the honour of supporting a living legend but to experience his performances night after night.”
This run of UK summer dates will coincide with the release of Elton’s brand new album ‘Wonderful Crazy Night’, released on the February 5, 2016.
