Singer, songwriter and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Joan Baez has announced a world tour which includes a Manchester gig at the Bridgewater Hall.

The tour will coincide with the March 2018 release of Joan Baez’s new studio album Whistle Down The Wind.

The tour will begin on 2 March in Stockholm before she performs 12 dates in the UK and Ireland in March and May

Speaking of the tour, Joan Baez commented, “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.”
