Intimate QPAC performance by Joan Armatrading

Intimate QPAC performance by Joan Armatrading

| On 30, Aug 2014

Following forty-two years of touring, British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Joan Armatrading, will perform her last major world tour and first solo concerts on a worldwide scale. After a sold out tour in 2013, Joan will be touring nationally, including an appearance in Brisbane for a one night only performance at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre in December.

Joan has released over twenty highly praised albums and is recognized for her talent worldwide. She has received three Grammy nominations and the highly coveted Ivor Novello Award, as well as recently being nominated for a Brit Award. Although she will continue to perform occasionally, this will be her last major world tour.

This very special series of solo performances will include Joan’s classic hit ‘Me, Myself I’, other favourites such as ‘Love and Affection’, ‘Drop The Pilot’ and ‘Willow’, as well as some of Joan’s latest compositions. This performance will be a musical journey showcasing Joan’s entire career and the many genres of music that she has mastered. Her rich, distinct voice and tender fusion of pop, folk, jazz and blues has earned her a well-deserved spot in music history.

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.”
