Legendary six-time Grammy Award-winning recording artist Dionne Warwick has announced today that her new UK & European concert dates, ‘One Last Time’ will form part of her Farewell Tour in September and October 2020.
Warwick says “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 hotels 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 kick off at The Waterfront in Belfast on 19th September 2020 and travel across the UK visiting Glasgow, Liverpool, Brighton, Birmingham, Gateshead and many other venues including the London Palladium on 2nd October 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’, ‘Anyone Who Had A Heart’ and ‘Walk On By’.
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.
