The Orpheum Theatre turns 100 on September 4, 2022 and we’re thrilled to kick off our 100th Anniversary celebrations with the legendary Dionne Warwick live in concert, presented by The Grumpy Old Men.
Dionne Warwick is a six-time Grammy Award-winning music legend who has earned more than 75 charted hit songs and sold over 100 million records. She was discovered by Burt Bacharach and Hal David in 1961 and went on to record 18 consecutive Top 100 singles (“Don’t Make Me Over,” Walk on By,” “Say a Little Prayer,” “A House is Not a Home,” “Alfie,” “Heartbreaker,” “Déjà Vu,” among countless others). She received her first Grammy in 1968 for “Do You Know the Way to San Jose?”. Ms. Warwick became the first African-American solo female artist of her generation to win the prestigious award for Best Contemporary Female Vocalist Performance.
Dionne Warwick has earned the title of “Queen of Twitter” after she started interacting with celebrities such as Chance the Rapper, Taylor Swift, and Snoop Dogg on Twitter in late 2020. She is also a current nominee to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, fans can vote through Apr. 29 and the inductees will be announced in May 2022.
