By Classic Pop | October 4, 2023
Gladys Knight – The Empress Of Soul and seven time Grammy winner – has announced her UK Farewell Tour for Summer 2024, taking in Glasgow, Birmingham, London, Swansea, Bournemouth, Nottingham and Southend.
Since she began her career in the 1950s performing with The Pips, the award-winning singer has recorded more than 40 albums and enjoyed No.1 hits on the Pop, Gospel, R&B and Contemporary charts.
Known for her collection of classic hits such as Midnight Train To Georgia (which remains one of the most famous Motown records to date and was honoured as one of ‘The Greatest Songs Of All Time’ by Rolling Stone), Help Me Make It Through The Night, Licence To Kill (the official theme song to the James Bond film), The Way We Were, Baby Don’t’ Change Your Mind, and You’re The Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me, Gladys Knight is one of music’s icons, and her contribution to pop culture unparalleled.
Gladys Knight has been honoured with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame; a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and has dozens of TV, film, and theatre credits.
For this tour Knight is joined by special guest Mica Miller, who has quickly become one of the UK’s most exciting soul stars who last year picked up Jazz FM’s Soul Act Of The Year Award, and has supported artists including Lionel Richie and Gregory Porter
