The legendary Burt Bacharach is giving a concert at UCLA's Royce Hall on Saturday, October 1st at 8 pm. There is also a free pre-show concert for ticket holders on the Terrace at 6:45 pm, doors open for that at 6:30 pm. Here's more information from the UCLA events website:
"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.
A recipient of three Academy Awards and eight Grammy Awards, Bacharach is regularly named as one of a handful of visionaries who pioneered new forms of music from the second half of the 20th Century and continued into the 21st Century.
His songs have been recorded and reinterpreted by legendary singers, such as Frank Sinatra, The Beatles, Neil Diamond, and Aretha Franklin. His 10 piece band backs him ably as they work through one of the most legendary songbooks of all time."

Tickets from the original concert date will be honored at the door. I will cover the concert when he recovers. Our best get well soon wishes go out to him!
