Burt Bacharach Live in Concert – with special guest Paddy Hanna.
The Hitmaker is returning to Dublin. Renowned for hits such as I'll Never Fall in Love Again, Anyone Who Had A Heart, The Look of Love, I Say A Little Prayer and Walk On By, Burt is the recipient of three Academy Awards and eight Grammy Awards.
Six decades into one of songwriting's most successful and honoured careers – marked by 48 Top 10 hits, nine #1 songs, more than 500 compositions and a landmark 50+ year run on the charts, Burt Bacharach's music continues to set industry records and creative standards. His global audiences span several generations, and he is viewed as the unique combination of one of the greatest composers of all time and the ultra-cool cult hero of the contemporary music set who often has several songs on various music charts in many countries simultaneously. He tours the world conducting orchestras with his own musicians and singers performing his music at his sold-out concerts.
Bacharach is a legend of popular music and his songs have been recorded by legendary singers, such as Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. Other tributes to the diversity of Bacharach's music have been paid by, among others, Elvis Costello (I'll Never Fall in Love Again and God Give Me Strength), REM, Diana Krall, Barenaked Ladies, Sheryl Crow, and Wynonna Judd.
