LEGENDARY SIX-TIME Grammy Award-winning recording artist Dionne Warwick is set to tour the UK and European as part of her farewell tour.
The UK and European leg, She’s Back: One Last Time, will kick off in 2020.
Warwick said: “After almost six decades I’ve decided it’s time to put away from touring trunk and focus on recording, one off concerts and special events. I still love performing live, but the rigours of travelling every day so far from home, sleeping in a different hotel each night, one concert after the other, is becoming hard. So, I’ve decided to stop touring on that level in Europe…. But I’m not retiring!”
The UK tour will begin at The Waterfront in Belfast on September 19 2020 and travel across the UK visiting Glasgow, Liverpool, Brighton, Birmingham, Gateshead and many other venues including the London Palladium on October 2 2020, before heading to Europe.
The first leg of this headline tour, in some of the UK’s most beautiful theatres, will encompass Warwick’s monumental career, with songs from her hugely successful recording catalogue including a selection of classic Warwick/Burt Bacharach/Hal David songs such as I Say A Little Prayer, Do You Know The Way To San Jose and Walk On By plus material from her brand new CD, She’s Back, which was produced by her son Damon Elliot.
Together they have created a brilliant album, different from her usual music and yet perfectly fitting. Complete with beautiful lyrics wrapped in catchy rhythms, her smooth voice leads through every song, every mood, creating a vivid picture about the ups and downs of life.
Warwick ranks among the 40 biggest hit makers of the entire rock era (1955-1999), based on the Billboard Hot 100 Pop Singles Charts. She is one of the most-charted female vocalists of all time, with 56 of her singles making the Billboard Hot 100 between 1962 and 1998, and 80 singles making all Billboard charts combined.
