Gladys Knight performs back in Australia next year February

The Empress of Soul Gladys Knight is heading back to Australia next year February for four evenings of show-stopping performances. With her nine-piece band in tow, the seven-time Grammy Award-winner will launch the tour at Perth's Crown Theatre, followed by performances at Sydney's The Star and Melbourne's Hamer Hall. The final AU show will be held at QPAC's Concert Hall in Brisbane before crossing over to New Zealand for shows at Auckland's Civic Theatre and Christchurch Town Hall. Both the AU and NZ stops mark her first visit in over 20 years.

"Uplifting anthems came laden with poignant nostalgia on a night where the vivacious veteran showed no sign of stopping." - The Guardian

Early success came to Knight when she began performing alongside siblings and cousins as Gladys Knight and the Pips. Breakout hit 'Every Beat of My Heart' was followed by a string of successful singles before the release of 'Neither One of Us (Wants to be the First to Say Goodbye)', which earned her her first Grammy Award. Another Grammy came for #1 hit 'Midnight Train to Georgia', before she picked up two more for 'Love Overboard' and her collaboration with Stevie Wonder, Elton John and Dionne Warwick—another #1 single, 'That's What Friends Are For'.

The multi-awarded singer, songwriter, actress, businesswoman and author has numerous other hit singles to her name, including three further Grammy Awards for her solo work, a James Bond theme for 'License To Kill', a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a Golden Globe nomination for her acting work. She's been inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, taken home a BET Lifetime Achievement Award, and was listed as one of Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Singers of All Time. Her most recent album is 2014's 'Where My Heart Belongs'.
