Gladys Knight — The Farewell Tour

  • Venue

    Michael Fowler Centre

Seven-time Grammy award winner and Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight returns to Wellington as part of a farewell tour in 2024. With a musical career spanning multiple decades, Gladys has enjoyed number-one hits in Pop, Gospel, and R&B. Very few singers over the last fifty years have matched her unassailable artistry and her live performances are legendary.

Gladys has recorded more than 38 albums over the years, including four solo albums over the past decade. Many of her hit songs have become classics including ‘That’s What Friends Are For’, ‘Licence To Kill’, ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’, ‘I Don’t Want To Know’, and ‘Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me’. You’ll hear these and many more when you experience one of the greats in concert. 

“Her voice remains a treasure chest of delights, from pointed, tasteful inflections, exclamatory growls, and longer notes coloured with her distinctly fluid vibrato.”

– The Soul House
