Burt to perform, debut new CD tonight on QVC

Burt Bacharach will debut his new CD—his first live CD in 30 years—on QVC tonight, Tuesday, Oct. 7, at 10 p.m. (ET).

Burt Bacharach Live at the Sydney Opera House features 32 songs spanning Bacharach’s career and recorded at the world-famous venue with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.

During the QVC Presents Burt Bacharach QSessions Live broadcast, the Grammy® and Academy  Award winner will perform a selection of songs from Burt Bacharach Live at the Sydney Opera House while giving viewers an inside look at the making of the album. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase the CD with a specially packaged bonus disc, which was created especially for QVC, nearly three weeks before street date.

“As my first live album since Woman, which I released in 1979, it seems fitting for me to debut my latest CD live on QVC,” said Bacharach. “I am excited to be able to perform these songs for QVC’s viewers and really get to the heart of what these songs mean to me and what they have come to mean for my fans.

It’s going to be a really fun show, and I hope viewers will interact the way my live audiences around the world do when we perform.”

Of special interest to serious Bacharach fans, a three-song bonus disc included with QVC orders will include Burt’s new composition “For the Children,” which was performed at the Sydney concert but is not included on the live disc.
