Not many musicians can boast seven Grammy Awards, but then not many have crafted a catalogue of some of the greatest songs of all time. It can only be Gladys Knight, the singing sensation whose unique combination of classic-pop elegance and pure soul power birthed ground-breaking tracks including "The Midnight Train to Georgia" and "The Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me".
The Empress of Soul might be in her twilight years, but not even age can put a stop to those unmistakable vocal licks. She'll be performing for fans across the globe in 2018, with a series of special dates at top UK venues.

Starting out in 1950s group The Pips with her brother, sister and cousins, singing sensational Gladys Knight quickly eclipsed the rest of her family. In 1959, the family band were renamed Gladys Knight and The Pips (wonder how her poor relatives felt about that?), and went on to achieve a string of decade-defining hits throughout the '60s including "Help Me Make It Through the Night" and "The Way We Were".
In 1966, the group joined Motown Records and earned their first Grammy Award off the back of shimmering soul pop single "Neither One of Us (Wants to Be the First to Say Goodbye)". Touring as the opening act for Diana Ross and the Supremes helped their singer gain a whole new legion of fans, and in 1973, Knight released the solo single that would become her magnum opus, "Midnight Train to Georgia". The song is included in the Grammy Hall of Fame and counted as one of Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.
While we hate to be fast and loose with the term diva, Gladys is the epitome of a celebrated female singer, known for always belting her heart out and giving her all. In 1996, she was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by Mariah Carey, who declared, "She's like a textbook to learn from. You hear her delivery and you wish you could communicate with as much honesty and emotion as she can." Experience her unmistakable voice live when you buy Gladys Knight tickets at StubHub UK.
