Gladys Knight has extended her UK Farewell Tour, due to overwhelming public demand.
A second date has been added Southend at the Cliffs Pavilion on July 4 and shows at Eastbourne Congress on July 6, and the Bristol Beacon on July 8.
The goodbye trip already includes dates in Glasgow, Birmingham, London, Swansea, Bournemouth, Nottingham and Southend.
Tickets for the new shows go on sale on November 24 at 9am via ticketline.co.uk, ticketmaster.co.uk or direct from the venues.
She’s expected to play all her classics during her farewell tour including standout Motown gem ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’, which was voted one of Rolling Stone’s greatest songs of all time.
Gladys is also set to play new material from her latest album ‘Where My Heart Belongs’.
The 79-year-old ‘Empress of Soul’ – who began her career in the 1950s performing with The Pips and went on to produce an iconic songbook including hits ‘Help Me Make it Through the Night’, James Bond theme ‘Licence to Kill’ and ‘The Way We Were’ – is launching her shows on June 24 in Glasgow, Scotland.
She will play at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall.
The icon will be joined by guest Mica Miller, 33, one of the UK’s most critically acclaimed modern soul stars.
Few singers over the last 50 years have matched Gladys' artistry, with the seven-time Grammy winner landing No1 hits in genres from pop and R'n'B to gospel.
