Intimate QPAC performance by Joan Armatrading
Adrien Van Bruinessen | On 30, Aug 2014
Following forty-two years of touring, British singer, songwriter and guitarist, Joan Armatrading,Â 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 Joanâ€™s classic hit â€˜Me, Myself Iâ€™, other favourites such asÂ â€˜Love and Affectionâ€™,Â â€˜Drop The Pilotâ€™ and â€˜Willowâ€™, as well asÂ some of Joanâ€™s latest compositions. This performance will be a musical journey showcasing Joanâ€™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; â€œI 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.â€
This may be the last chance to see Joan Armatrading in concert in Australia, so donâ€™t miss out on this extraordinary opportunity.
