Burt Bacharach is at Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley for a four-night run March 22-25. Share story You thank him for “Alfie.” You thank him for “I Say A Little Prayer” – especially the Aretha Franklin version. You thank him for the background music at your parents’ cocktail parties, for writing the songs your father used to sing in the car.

More 2018 tour dates

Burt’s never-ending tour continues in 2018. In addition to the Rancho Mirage date I posted last month, I just received confirmation of two new concert dates.

On March 17, Burt and his band will perform at the Wild Horse Pass Casino in Chandler, Arizona, and from March 22 to March 25, Burt returns to Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley in Seattle.

As always, check out the Bacharach On Tour page for the latest confirmed dates I’ve got.

Just received confirmation that Burt will play a four-night residency this fall at Blue Note Hawaii. The dates are Oct. 12-15. These shows are the latest in a series of smaller venue concerts Burt has been performing in the last few years, so if the idea of seeing Burt in the more intimate setting of a jazz club appeals to you (and if you’re able to get yourself to Honolulu), by all means make plans to attend. For tickets, visit Blue Note Hawaii.
