Joan Armatrading has added South Africa to her 2015 world tour and will be performing several shows in South Africa in July 2015 as part of her last ever world tour. Concerts will be held in Cape Town, East London, Durban and Johannesburg. Joan was last seen in Johannesburg in April 2014 for the well-received show "Anthems of Democracy" produced by Roddy Quinn
Known for her distinctive vocals and consummate musicianship, 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.”
