Joan Baez has announced a run of 10 dates at l’Olympia in Paris next June. The dates are the first to be announced for Baez’s Fare Thee Well 2018 tour with more to be revealed soon. The l’Olympia tickets are available from today on a presale and next Monday, July 3rd to the general public.
Earlier this year Baez was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame where she made a passionate speech about social change. “What has given my life deep meaning, and unending pleasure, has been to use my voice in the battle against injustice. It has brought me in touch with my own purpose. It has also brought me in touch with people of every background. With open, generous, fun loving, hardworking people, here in this country and around the world. It has brought me in touch with the wealthy, the ones who are stuck in selfishness, and the ones who give generously of their time and resources to benefit the less fortunate, and light the way for others to do the same.”

UPDATE: Joan Baez’s new album, Whistle Down The Wind, is out now – find out more here.
