Legendary soul singer Gladys Knight is heading out on her final ever tour – and will be performing in Manchester this month. 

The seven-time Grammy-award winner, known as the ‘Empress of Soul’, has included an evening at the O2 Apollo Manchester as part of her tour. 

Known as the voice on iconic songs like Midnight Train to Georgia, the 78-year-old star will be performing her final ever shows this summer. 

Gladys Knight’s Farewell Tour will be in Manchester on 27 May – one of only two gigs here in the UK. 

She’s a bona fide hit-maker who has written more than 40 albums, and scored countless chart successes across genres such as pop, soul and gospel.

Gladys launched into the world of showbiz when she was just eight years old, and has gone on to earn a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and an inclusion in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame.

She’ll be playing a huge range of songs from her arsenal of hits, such as the standout Motown gem (and The Greatest Songs Of All Time according to Rolling Stone), ‘Midnight Train To Georgia, plus ‘Help Me Make It Through The Night’.


Her back catalogues also includes the James Bond theme tune ‘Licence To Kill’, ‘Baby Don’t Change Your Mind, and ‘You’re The Best Thing (That Ever Happened to Me)’ all well as all new material from her latest album, Where My Heart Belongs.
