With live concerts slowly becoming a distant memory in the rearview mirror of life, Vance Joy is set to bring one of his biggest shows to date directly to his fans.

Back in September of 2018, Vance Joy kicked off the Australian leg of his Nation of Two world tour with a massive performance at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena. Just a week later, he did it all again, delivering another stunning show featuring all of his biggest hits which undoubtedly served a major highlight for fans of both Vance Joy and Australian music in general.

Fast forward more than 18 months, and with the country’s venues looking like a ghost town, Vance is set to bring this huge hometown show to the comfort of your own home.


“Back in 2018, we filmed one of my biggest headline home town shows to date at Rod Laver Arena on the Nation of Two World Tour,” Vance explained via Instagram yesterday. “Given we can’t currently go out to see live music we’ve pieced it together so you can relive the show at home indoors.”

Set to premiere via YouTube this weekend, it’ll be streamed live from 9am AEST on Saturday, April 18th. According to the details on YouTube, it’s not the entire show, but includes opening numbers “Call If You Need Me” and “Mess Is Mine”, while classics like “Fire and the Flood” and “Riptide” precede the massive closer of “Saturday Sun”.

While Vance Joy had spent the start of this year working on album number three in Los Angeles, the critically-acclaimed musician also brought his performances to the homes of fans just last month, taking part in the #TogetherAtHome campaign.

Performing a number of his beloved tracks, the campaign also included livestreamed gigs from the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Ziggy Marley, and Christine and the Queens.
