Foy Vance will embark on an extensive European tour later this summer. The UK dates commence on August 30 at York Barbican and culminate on September 9 at Belfast SSE Arena, Vance’s first arena show in his native Northern Ireland. The tour follows the 2021 release of Vance’s fourth studio album ‘Signs of Life‘, while 2022 marks the fifteenth anniversary of his 2007 full-length debut ‘Hope‘. To celebrate the anniversary, ‘Hope‘ will be available on vinyl for the very first time. The album is being reissued on double red vinyl with artwork from the original CD packaging and will include two new acoustic versions of songs from the album. The albums can be preordered on the independent record-maker Diggers Factory’s website.
