Joan Armatrading in concert

  • Mar 26, 2015 · 7:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Joan Armatrading performs her first ever solo world tour for the first time in her 42-year career, revisiting songs she's written throughout her entire career. 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 favourites 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.

Three times Grammy nominated, Brit award nominee and Ivor Novella winner producer, musician Joan Armatrading MBE is recognised as one of the world’s leading singer, songwriter and guitarists. 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. Please book your ticket directly with the Barbican (£29.50) well in advance as it is sure to sell out. We will be meeting before and after the performance for a drink and further details will be provided nearer the time.

Hope you can make it,

Tina

    Hi finally able to sign in to meetup. Here but couldn't make 6.30. Have been busy checking out cds while the support act is on. Are we meeting in the interval?

  • Tina

    Hi, I am unable to meet at 6, however we can meet in the Barbican's downstairs bar from 6.30pm on Thursday. It is next to the ticket desk so it's easy for everyone to find and warmer than meeting at the station. The contact number for the evening will be[masked] so please text or ring if you can't find us. It should be a great evening, please do change your status if you are not attending so we don't wait for you unnecessarily. Best wishes, Tina

    Would that I could be there, but I'm back on my side of the pond. I actually travelled "all the way from America" and saw the inimitable Armatrading in Yeovil last October. Incomparable show! I've loved Joan since the Show Some Emotion days. I'm hoping to meet w/ the group when next I'm in London. Your activities are truly about community. Love it! BTW, I'm seeing Joan next month in New York!
