Legendary Joan Baez launches her last major tour in Stockholm

By on October 29, 2017

Last year, she gave us a truly magical concert at Stockholm Music & Arts, a concert also attended by Patti Smith, and earlier this year, the legendary artist and activist Joan Baez was elected to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Now we can tell you she is up to date with a new album and launches her last big tour “Fare thee well … .Tour 2018” with three concerts in Sweden.

On March 2 starts the tour on the Stockholm Waterfront, then arrives at Malmö Live on March 3 and the Concert House in Gothenburg on March 10th.

Tickets for these three concerts will be released on November 1st.

“Fare thee well … Tour 2018” coincides with Joan Baez releasing a new studio album, her first since 2008. Joan tells herself about the album:

“While 2018 will be my last year of formal extended touring, I’m looking forward to being on the road with a beautiful new album about which I am truly proud. I welcome the opportunity to share this new music as well as longtime favorites with my audiences around the world.”

The new yet untitled album will be released in late February 2018.

Joan Baez’s career has been over 50 years, during which she unknowingly introduced Bob Dylan to the world in 1963, marched on the front line of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King, inspired Vaclav Havel to fight for the independence of the Czech Republic and continues to this day passionately take position on questions she is passionate about. Through her amazing career, she has received many awards and honors, including the Recording Academy’s Lifetime Achievement Award and Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award.

We are incredibly proud and humble about the fact that one of the biggest and most important artists and songwriters in modern times starts their last major tour in Stockholm, Sweden.

The concerts in Malmö and Gothenburg are organized in collaboration with KB and KB West.
