Joan Armatrading - three NZ shows on final world tour

“…with my final major tour, I want to capture a unique memory for both myself and the audience.” Joan Armatrading

Joan Armatrading Last Major World Tour
Solo Shows Announced!


TOURING NEW ZEALAND THIS DECEMBER:


AUCKLAND-WELLINGTON-CHRISTCHURCH

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 New Zealand this December for three intimate shows including performances at the Town Hall in Auckland, the Opera House in Wellington and the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch (please see below for more detailed information).

One of the world’s most prolific songwriters and musicians, Joan Armatrading has released over 20 acclaimed albums, received three Grammy nominations, is a Brit Award nominee and has received the highly coveted Ivor Novello 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.
