On 28 – 29 May 2018, legendary artist and activist Joan Baez returned to the Royal Albert Hall as part of her final extended world tour. Her Fare Thee Well Tour visits bring Baez’ total Royal Albert Hall performances to 8, having made her debut here in 1965.

The show saw Baez perform classics including Diamonds and Rust, Bob Dylan’s Farewell Angelina, and Woody Guthrie’s Deportee (Plane Wreck at Los Gatos), alongside songs from her new album Whistle Down the Wind.

Baez’s career has spanned over 50 years, during which time she unselfconsciously introduced Bob Dylan to the world, marched on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement with Martin Luther King, inspired Vaclav Havel to fight for a Czech Republic, and continues to this day to stand passionately on behalf of causes she embraces.
