Joan Baez Announces Final Career Tour Dates

It appears that 2018 is going to be a year of goodbyes. Last month, Elton John announced his new “Farewell Yellow Brick Road” tour would be his last. (Of course, it’s expected to run three years with 300 dates, so it’ll be 2021 before he actually calls it quits.) Then earlier this month, Paul Simon announced his imminent retirement from touring with the Homeward Bound: The Farewell Tour.

The latest icon to bid adieu is Joan Baez, who on Monday revealed the final dates for her upcoming Fare Thee Well Tour 2018. Baez, whose new album Whistle Down the Wind will be released March 2, said last April that 2018 would be her last year of “formal touring.” Baez’s 50-date European tour kicks off March 2. Now we know that the North American leg of her tour will begin Sept. 11 in Ithaca, N.Y. You can find the schedule below.

Recorded over 10 days in Los Angeles, Whistle Down the Wind was produced by three-time Grammy Award-winner Joe Henry (Bonnie Raitt, Allen Toussaint and others) and includes songs written by Tom Waits, Anohni, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Josh Ritter and Eliza Gilkyson. The new music marks the first release from Baez since 2008’s Day After Tomorrow.
