“No one over the last 40 years has written more or better pop songs.” – Vanity Fair

One of the world’s most acclaimed, award-winning composer/songwriters, Burt Bacharach helped define the music of the 20th and 21st centuries. Now the eight-time Grammy Award and three-time Academy Award winner will perform alongside his incredible band and sing some of his greatest hits, including “The Look of Love,” “I Say A Little Prayer,” “Alfie,” “Any Day Now,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head,” and many more.

Six decades into one of songwriting’s most successful and honored careers – marked by 48 Top 10 hits, nine #1 songs, more than 500 compositions and a landmark 50+year run on the charts – Burt Bacharach’s music continues to set industry records and creative standards.

His songs have been recorded by legendary singers such as Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Barbra Streisand, Neil Diamond, Linda Ronstadt, Dionne Warwick and Aretha Franklin. His compositions include “Any Day Now,” “Close To You,” “A House Is Not A Home,” “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ on My Head,” “There's Always Something There To Remind Me,” and “Wishin' And Hopin.'”

Bacharach has also enjoyed a celebrated career in film, with his compositions featured in films including “Alfie,” the original “Casino Royale,” “Arthur,” Baby Boom,” and “Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.”

The recipient of three Academy Awards and eight Grammy Awards, Bacharach is viewed as one of the greatest composers of all time and has often had several songs on music charts in many countries simultaneously. He tours the world conducting orchestras with his own musicians and singers, performing his music at sold-out concerts.
