Joan Armatrading To Tour North America

Singer/Songwriter Joan Armatrading will bring her "Me Myself I" tour to the United States.  The tour, set to be her last major world tour, kicks off in April. She will, for the first time in her four decade plus career perform her entire set solo.  Unfortunately, if you don't already have tickets New York, you're going to miss it. That show is sold out. See below for a list of tour dates.

The British singer/songwriter/guitarist/instrumentalist, best known for such worldwide hits as "Love And Affection," "Me Myself I," "Drop The Pilot" and many more, performs for nearly two hours per show sharing the highlights of her extensive career, singing, playing guitar and piano.  The set also includes an intimate photo montage, narrated by Armatrading herself, which beautifully captures her career in pictures. 
Of the "Me, Myself, I" world tour, Joan Armatrading commented, "'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 and 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."  Armatrading's "Me Myself I" world tour has been winning rave reviews from the media globally with The Argus (Brighton, England) declaring, "The veteran performer didn't just take to the stage...she owned it..." and The Stourbridge News (Stourbridge, England) avowing, "Accompanying herself on either guitar or piano, Joan showed what an accomplished musician she is as well as possessing a truly original voice and wonderful songwriting skills."
