Joan Armatrading stops by as part of her world tour celebrating 46 years in music.

Born in Saint Kitts but raised in Birmingham – where her mother swapped two prams for her first guitar at a pawn shop – Joan Armatrading has written some of the most memorable Pop songs of the post-war era, including the magical Love and Affection, Willow, Me Myself I and Drop the Pilot. Tonight, expect to hear these and many more, including new music written and recorded for 2018.

This performance will begin promptly at the advertised start time and is expected to finish by 9.40pm.
