As previously reported, Liza Minnelli appeared in her first concert in more than a year this summer, on Friday, July 24 at 8 p.m. at the IP Casino Resort Spa in Biloxi, Mississippi. Now according to Star News, the living legend is set to perform with the North Carolina Symphony at Cape Fear Community College's Humanities and Fine Arts Center. The special event will take place on October 3.
"Well, I try and do the things that people like. Like 'New York, New York' and 'Cabaret,'" the star said in a recentinterview with AOL. "I also try to put in things that I know people there haven't heard. So it's a big surprise, kids. I'm excited about coming."
She added: "I'm trying to add a little more hopeful side. I mean the songs I choose. I try and go from what I've learned, and also what I'd like to hear, what I enjoy. New things and old things. ... I like to sing something that makes you feel slightly different when you walk out. Happier, and satisfied."
The star followed her parents into the entertainment arena at the tender age of 2, co-starring with her mother in the 1949 film IN THE GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME. In 1965, she won a Tony Award for her performance in FLORA, THE RED MENACE, becoming the youngest-ever actress to win a Tony for a musical role; it was the first of four Tonys she would earn.
She is the only singer in history to sell out Carnegie Hall for three consecutive weeks. Her hit songs include "Liza (With a "Z")," "Theme from New York, New York," "Cabaret," "Walking Papers," "Quiet Thing," "Old Friends," "Maybe This Time," "Little Do They Know," "I (Who Have Nothing)," "God Bless the Child."
Her movie credits include 1972's CABARET, for which she won an Academy Award; NEW YORK, NEW YORK, co-starring Robert De Niro; and the ARTHUR films with Dudley Moore. She has appeared as herself on TV in SMASH, THE VOICE UK, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, THE APPRENTICE, and more, and is well known for her portrayal of 'Lucille Austero' in the Netflix comedy ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.
