Reserves and Prices

Seven-time Grammy award winner, singer, actress and true Empress of Soul, Gladys Knight will make her highly anticipated return to Adelaide with The Farewell Tour next March.

Gladys has had one of the most coveted musical careers in history, and will be bringing her biggest hits – ‘Licence To Kill’, ‘Midnight Train to Georgia’, ‘I Don’t Want To Know’, ‘Best Thing That Ever Happened To Me’ and ‘That’s What Friends Are For’.

I’m so grateful to be visiting these beautiful places again and be able to share my music with the fans who are so hospitable and embrace us with open arms. The spirit and soul brought to our performances by these amazing audiences is unmatched the world over,” said Knight in anticipation of her upcoming tour.

With a legendary status, consistently proving that her stage presence, live performance and artistry never falters, the great Gladys Knight is returning to perform a string of unmissable headline shows across Australia and New Zealand – a once in a lifetime opportunity for fans of soul music.

★★★★ A career-spanning set from the empress of soul – the star is in outstanding voice as she pours her whole heart into hits ranging from the Motown era to her 1980s Bond theme

— The Guardian

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
