Mending a broken heart? Falling in love? There’s a soundtrack for all of that, thanks to little cutie extraordinaire and crooner from Down Under, Vance Joy, known best for his endearing brand of indie, chart-topping sap.



Proficient in foot-stomping, sing-along songs, it was Joy’s breakout hit “Riptide” that topped global charts in 2013 and became the longest-charting song in Australian music sales history with 120 consecutive weeks. His latest output, 2018’s Nation of Two fuses his signature sentimentality with less-than-rose-tinted romanticism — suggesting that joy is fleeting, but Vance Joy is forever.

Vance Joy will perform at the Fox Theatre on Tuesday, May 22; Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3200; 313presents.com; Tickets start at $25.50.
