“…with my final major tour, I want to capture a unique memory for both myself and the audience.” Joan Armatrading
After touring for 42 years, the incomparable Joan Armatrading will be performing her last major world tour and first solo concerts on a worldwide scale. Bluesfest Touring is proud to be announcing Joan’s return to Australia this December for this special series of intimate performances after a highly acclaimed sold out tour here in 2013. This time Joan Armatrading will be touring nationally and will be performing at the Astor Theatre in Perth, The Gov in Adelaide, The Recital Centre in Melbourne, The Theatre Centre in Canberra, The Enmore Theatre in Sydney, Panthers in Port Macquarie, Twin Towns in Tweed Heads and QPAC Concert Hall in Brisbane (Please see below for detailed information including dates).
One of the world’s most prolific songwriters and musicians, Joan Armatrading has released over 20 acclaimed albums, received three Grammy nominations; she is a Brit Award nominee and has received the highly coveted Ivor Novella Award. Although she will continue to perform on occasion this will be the final major world tour. Joan says; “I will never retire but this will be the last major tour that I will undertake. For the first time these concerts will be me solo on stage playing the guitar, piano and singing. I want these concerts to be a special lively interactive one to one experience. I have absolutely enjoyed the last 42 years of performances but now, with my final major tour, I want to capture a unique memory for both myself and the audience.”
Fittingly, this unique series of solo shows will feature Joan’s classic hit ‘Me, Myself I’ as well as a mix of other favourites such as ‘Love and Affection’, ‘Willow’ and ‘Drop The Pilot’ plus some of Joan’s more recent compositions. Fans new and old will enjoy a musical voyage spanning Joan Armatrading’s entire career and the many genres she has mastered including Pop, Blues, Folk, Reggae and Jazz.
