The Gallo Center for the Arts has a reputation for bringing the very best of a variety of genres to Modesto. They also are known for kicking off each season with a world-class performer.
That said, they’ve outdone themselves this time around. The legendary Dionne Warwick is kicking off the Gallo Center’s 2019-2020 season on September 27.
The six time Grammy winner just released her latest album, She’s Back, and has sold over 100 million records during her six decade career. You’ve heard one or two of those hits. “That’s What Friends Are For” “Then Came You” “Walk On By” “I Say A Little Prayer” And the one with the local reference (and one of the ones that Warwick never liked and didn’t want to record), “Do You Know The Way To San Jose.”
I’m not sure whether I could get to San Jose without my GPS’ help, but I can get to the Gallo Center for the Arts in Modesto in my sleep, and I will be making a beeline for that place for Warwick’s September 27 show! And from the looks of their schedule, it’ll be the first of many unforgettable shows during their 2019-2020 season. Season subscriptions are available now, and you can select any five shows. Tickets to individual performances are available June 17.
