Joan Armatrading

REAL Concerts presents in association with M-Net City, Mix FM & Algoa FM presents a Very Special SOLO Evening with Joan Armatrading. Joan Armatrading has added South Africa to her 2014/2015 world tour and will be performing several shows in South Africa in July 2015. Concerts will be held in Cape Town, East London, Durban and Johannesburg.

Known as a true craftsman, 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.  South Africa has always been close to Joan’s heart and has decided to add South Africa as part of her last ever 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.”

Opening for her on this tour in July is none other than, South African platinum selling artist, Jesse Clegg whose 2008 debut album, When I Wake Up, and his 2011 follow up, Life On Mars, have made the 25-year-old a success in his home country. He has released 4 Top 10 singles and toured extensively both locally and internationally, playing the biggest festivals in the world.
