Fresh off his summer tour of Europe, Burt and his band will head Down Under this fall for a series of dates in Australia. His six dates there will be his first performances in Australia since 2012. Burt has always had a special place in his heart for Australia. Fans no doubt recall his Live at the Sydney Opera House album was recorded during a 2008 tour.
Burt Bacharach and his band will perform at this year’s Glastonbury Festival, the legendary British festival known for showcasing the biggest acts in rock.
Even more exciting, Burt will perform on the Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury’s iconic main stage, which this year will feature headliners including Foo Fighters, the Who, Florence & the Machine, Paul Weller and Motorhead.
Burt will perform on Saturday, June 27, at 4:30 p.m., sharing the day’s bill with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Paloma Faith, George Ezra, the Waterboys and Courtney Barnett.
Some U.K. fans may recall that Burt was previously scheduled to play Glastonbury back in 2000, but he was forced to withdraw due to a broken shoulder.
The Glastonbury performance is a late addition to Burt’s summer tour of the U.K., which also includes concerts in London, Killarney, Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff, Nottingham and Bristol.

Just got word that Burt will perform his annual show at Embarcadero Marina Park South with the San Diego Symphony this year on Aug. 16. I don’t know how long Burt has performed these annual Summer Pops concerts with the San Diego Symphony, but it’s been at least a decade and it’s always a terrific show in a breathtaking location.

Blessed with his father’s good looks and quiet charm, Oliver, like a lot of young men his age, is not sure where life is leading him. But he does say this of his father over coffee at Allann Brothers on Hilyard Street: “He’s my best friend.”
