Singing sensation Liza Minnelli will make a rare Nashville appearance this fall when she performs Nov. 13 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center.

The show, part of TPAC’s 30th anniversary celebration, will feature some of the greatest songs of all time performed in their purest, most intimate form with Liza and her quartet. She will be accompanied by Billy Stritch.

“It’s such an honor to host a legend and talent like Liza Minnelli,” said Kathleen O’Brien, TPAC’s president and CEO. “The contributions she has made to the performing arts world are influential and respected worldwide, so having her perform in Nashville is so very special. The opportunity to hear her sing in Andrew Jackson Hall will be unforgettable.”

TPAC celebrates 30 years this upcoming season, and when our doors opened in 1980, Liza was already a legend. An icon like her is an ideal addition to this anniversary season, and a concert that shouldn’t be missed.”

Minnelli, who has a shelf full of awards, is probably best known for her 1972 performance in “Cabaret” which earned eight Oscars including Best Actress for her performance as Sally Bowles. In recent years, she returned to Broadway in “Liza’s at the Palace…” that was later recreated for the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Today, she continues her music career with ongoing concert tours in the U.S. and Europe, as well as recording a new album.

Tickets to Liza Minnelli go on sale to the public July 23. and range from $50-150, depending upon seat locations. For tickets, visit www.tpac.org, call 615-782-4040, or visit the TPAC Box Office (Downtown or at Davis-Kidd Booksellers in The Mall at Green Hills).
