“Never one to rest on her laurels, Joan remains fresh, vibrant and current - no more so than when live, on stage, where music comes to life,” said a spokesperson.

“With every tour you are guaranteed a fantastic mix of magical old favourites plus brand new songs to fall in love with.

“Joan is as happy to play ‘Love and Affection’, ‘Willow’, ‘Drop The Pilot’ and ‘Me Myself I’ as the audience is to hear them.

“She is equally happy and proud of how her audiences embrace hearing new and exciting compositions, like ‘Into The Blues’ (debuted at number one in the US Blues Chart 2007) and ‘This Charming Life’ (debuted at number one in Amazon download chart 2010).

“During her long and illustrious career Joan has been successful in all musical genres, Pop, Blues, Folk, Reggae and Jazz.

“Her audience, newly attracted or long term fans are as loyal to her as she is faithful to them.

“The 2012 tour will see Joan performing ‘Love and Affection’ amongst many other firm favourites, and also showcase songs from her brand new CD, which is due for release in time for this mammoth tour.

“Don’t miss the chance to see one of the most truly gifted performers of our time and book your seat for what will surely be a night to remember,” they added.
