If you have a yearning to hear the soulful tones of Dionne Warwick, Roberta Flack, The Drifters or Mary Wilson of the Supremes, then October 2015 is going to be the month you.
All these legends will be performing together for the first time ever in London, Birmingham and Manchester as they embark on a triple Arena tour across the UK.
Multi-Grammy winning Dionne Warwick has sold over a hundred million records worldwide, with unforgettable hits such as “Walk On By” and “Anyone Who Had A Heart”. She has collaborated with some amazing artists, such as Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross and Smokey Robinson. In 1985 she reunited with songwriter Burt Bacharach to record “That’s What Friends Are For” with her long-term friends Elton John, Gladys Knight and Stevie Wonder. The single became a huge hit around the world, raising funds and awareness for the AIDS cause, which she still supports.
Fellow Grammy winner Roberta Flack is often hailed as the greatest songstress of our time. Who can forget such tracks as “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” and “Killing Me Softly With His Song”. Roberta is the only solo artist to have won two Grammys in two consecutive years. Influenced by growing up in a community immersed in gospel music and hearing such artists as Sam Cooke, Roberta still remains a shining inspiration to her fans, peers and younger musicians in the music industry, having appeared with artists like Alicia Keyes, India Arie, and Angie Stone.
The Drifters have seen massive chart success on both sides of the Atlantic and across the world since they formed in 1953. Their many hits include “Save The Last Dance For Me”, “Saturday Night At The Movies”, “Come On Over To My Place”, “Under The Boardwalk”, “Can I Take You Home Little Girl” and many more classic memorable songs. They have also been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in recognition of their global success spanning almost six decades.
Mary Wilson is one third of the most successful female singing group in recording history, The Supremes. Along with Diana Ross and Flo Ballard the Motown legendary group was one of the most influential and memorable of all time, with many huge hits including “Baby Love”, “Where Did Our Love Go”, “You Can’t Hurry Love”, “Stop in the Name of Love” and many, many more. As testimony to the success of the Supremes, Mary shared the stage with Mick Jagger, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison when the Supremes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Mary Wilson is also a bestselling author with her autobiography, “Dreamgirl… My Life As A Supreme”, which is one of the most successful rock and roll autobiographies of all time.
