Gladys Knight

The Olympia Theatre, Monday 17th June - Tuesday 18th June 2019

Gladys Knight ‘The Empress Of Soul' at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin. A rare opportunity to see and hear a living legend perform in the perfect venue for this show.

The great ones endure, and Gladys Knight has long been one of the greatest. Very few singers over the last fifty years have matched her unassailable artistry. This seven-time Grammy winner has enjoyed #1 hits in Pop, Gospel, R&B and Adult Contemporary, and has triumphed in film, television and live performance.

Knight, known as the ‘Empress of Soul', a longtime Las Vegas resident, returned to the Strip in the late-2000's to the famed Tropicana Hotel for a special engagement that ran in the newly named Gladys Knight Theatre, making her the first African-American performer to have a venue named after her in Las Vegas. This followed a successful four-year show run at The Flamingo, which the Las Vegas Review-Journal praised as “the number-one show on the Strip.” A tireless humanitarian, Knight is an iconic supporter of the Boys & Girls Club of America, to which she donated a Randy Jackson- produced song, The Dream. As the celebrated singer of the timeless song Midnight Train to Georgia, Knight was a natural fit as national spokesperson and host of Amtrak's National Train Day, the celebration of which took place Washington, DC's famed Union Station.
