One of America’s true legends, Liza Minnelli, winner of four Tony awards, an Oscar, a special “Legends” Grammy, two Golden Globe Awards and an Emmy is one of the world’s consummate performers. In film, on stage and in television, Liza has won critical acclaim, a multitude of fans, and recognition from her peers in show business, giving new dimension and credibility to the word “superstar.”
In between her many TV and film roles, Liza has never stopped touring and has long been considered one of the most exciting concert performers. She electrifies audiences around the world and has set records at the most prestigious venues, from the Palladium in London and Opera House in Sydney, to the Olympia Theatre in Paris and New York’s historic Carnegie Hall, where one of Liza’s greatest triumphs was her unprecedented three-week concert engagement in 1987. Liza was the first entertainer in the hall’s history to completely sell-out three weeks of appearances. She had earlier appeared in concert at Carnegie Hall in 1979. This appearance was every bit as unforgettable. On closing night the police had to disperse the crowd when they refused to leave the auditorium following multiple encores. Both of these concerts were recorded and are among the music industry’s most highly praised live concert recordings.
“Liza is an amazing woman; she is a true artist on so many platforms and her audiences are so diverse. We’re talking about a woman who performed sold-out shows at Carnegie Hall…needless to say we’re happy to have her come back to the LVH,” said Rick White, Vice President of Brand Marketing and Entertainment.
Up and coming 18 year-old singer Nicolas King will open for Liza Minnelli. King, not new to the stage, appeared on Broadway for nine months when he was only eight years old in “Beauty and the Beast” with Andrea McArdle. He went on to appear in other theatrical productions including “A Thousand Clowns” with Tom Selleck in 2001 and “Hollywood Arms” with Carol Burnett, several television commercials and was tapped by Liza Minnelli to be her opening act when he was only 16.
