Over her 42 years of touring Joan Armatrading has never done a solo world tour.
For her last Major tour she has decided this is the perfect time to perform her first ever full scale solo concerts. Her performances will include songs that span her entire career so far.
'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.'
As with every tour from this unique performer, you are guaranteed a fantastic mix of magical old favorites plus more recent compositions to fall in love with. Joan is as happy to play Love and Affection, Willow, Drop The Pilot and Me, Myself I, as the audience is to hear them. Joan is very excited to start this new experience of solo touring.
During her long and illustrious career Joan has been successful in all musical genres, Pop, Blues, Folk, Reggae, and Jazz. Her audience newly attracted or long term fans are as loyal to her as she is faithful to them.
