Joan Baez: Royce Hall, Los Angeles

Michael Simmons, L.A. Weekly, 13 November 2018

ON SATURDAY, NOV. 10, Royce Hall at UCLA was sold out for Joan Baez's Fare Thee Well… Tour 2018. At the age of 77, the folk music icon and political activist decided to end formal touring after almost 60 years on the road with one last go around the United States, U.K. and Europe. Before the concert, her fans milled about Royce Hall's lobby and outdoor patio. While all ages were represented, the majority were old enough to have seen her perform in the 1960s.
