Only a global phenomenon can label her upcoming performance at one of Londons biggest theatres, the Palladium, “An Intimate Evening with..”
Rocco Bunvino Productions is set to bring another megastar to these shores. The very lovely and dynamic Liza Minnelli will be the star of An Intimate Evening with Liza Minnelli at the venue on September 20. She is also set to appear in Sheffield and Glasgow.
Currently in her sixth decade of performing, Liza, winner of four Tony Awards, an Oscar, a Grammy, two Golden Globe Awards, an Emmy and a BAFTA, remains one of the world’s most consummate performers and beloved entertainers.
In film, on record, on stage and on television, Liza has won critical acclaim, a multitude of fans and recognition from her peers in show business.
Liza is following in the footsteps of Hollywood movie greats Sylvester Stallone, Al Pacino, John Travolta and Arnold Schwarzenegger by getting up-close and personal with her British fans on stage in the West End.
Unlike her concerts, Liza will be interviewed for 90 minutes live on stage talking about her extraordinary career, from growing up in Hollywood to the present day. The evening will end with a few intimate songs from Liza, accompanied by her long time musical director and pianist Billy Stritch, plus a Q&A session with her fans in the audience.
Liza said: “I’m always so excited to return to Britain, which I’ve considered to be a second home for many years.
“I have so many friends there and I look forward to being back again for these special intimate evenings.
“Whenever I do concerts people always say they want to hear about me growing up, being on Broadway, in the movies, the people I’ve met and worked with… so this will give me a chance to share a lot more of those stories. I can’t wait to see you all again!”
An Intimate Evening with Liza Minnelli will be Liza’s fifth engagement at the London Palladium – her first was in 1964 when Liza and her mother, Judy Garland, sold out two special concerts.
Liza also appeared there in solo concert runs in 1973, 1978 & 1986. To celebrate this, Liza will be inducted into the London Palladium Hall of Fame.
Her photo will be hung next to her mother and alongside Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr, Dean Martin and the other American stars that have performed at the venue from the 1950s to the present day.
Liza will also perform An Intimate Evening with Liza Minnelli in Sheffield at the City Hall on September 22 and at the Clyde Auditorium, Glasgow on September 24.
