Burt's Back!

Saturday 23 January 2010

The Greatest Living Composer, Burt Bacharach, announces new dates for his tour of New Zealand.

The ultra cool, cult hero and his sublime band will now perform at Auckland's Vector Arena on Friday, November 5 and at Christchurch's Westpac Arena on Sunday November 7. The new dates follow last month's postponement due to Burt having to undergo emergency back surgery.

Burt has written more than seventy Classic Top 40 hits with nine Number Ones and forty-eight Top Tens.  Mike Myers' "Lucky Charm" has also contributed to the careers of Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield, Neil Diamond, Dionne Warwick, Aretha Franklin, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, REM, Sheryl Crow, Gene Pitney and The Beatles.
