03/16/2016 – Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater, Miami, FL.
Vance Joy brought his Fire and the Flood tour to Florida for his first ever headline shows here. I was lucky enough to cover the show at The Fillmore in Miami Beach. Setting the tune for the night were the two opening acts, Jamie Lawson who is signed to Ed Sheehan’s record label and just got off a tour opening up for him, and Blind Pilots who are an indie folk band from Portland. Vance was greeted by cheers as he hit the stage opening up with one of my favorite songs off his record, Mess is Mine. He gave a really intimate performance stopping before almost every song to tell the audience what it was about. The crowd was energetic throughout especially when the brought out his ukulele to play his hit single, “Riptide.”
