It was a sad day in February 2023 when the world heard that Burt Bacharach had died. Tonight’s tribute includes many of his most famous songs, including ‘Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head’, ‘What The World Needs Now’, ‘Do You Know The Way to San Jose’, ‘Walk on By’, ‘Close to You’… he wrote the kind of tunes that you know without even realising it. They’re the soundtrack to an era – the easiest of easy listening, with an irresistible swing. Tonight, in the stunning surroundings of the Hall, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and an all-star cast of vocalists give them the deluxe treatment.
