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.”
