Dionne Warwick to play the Fox Theatre with Peabo Bryson, Deniece Williams

Dionne Warwick will make a rare Atlanta appearance when she performs at the Fox Theatre with Peabo Bryson and Deniece Williams.

Warwick and friends will visit the venue at 8 p.m. Aug. 23 for what is dubbed “A Night of Class.” Tickets for the show - $92-$249 – are on sale now at foxtheatre.org, the venue box office and by calling 1-855-285-8499.

The singer behind such classics as “Walk On By,” “I’ll Never Love This Way Again” and “I Say a Little Prayer,” released her first new album in five years in May, “She’s Back.” The recording includes duets with Musiq Soulchild and Kenny Lattimore, as well as an update of the Burt Bacharach/Hal David favorite, “What The World Needs Now is Love,” which she originally recorded in the 1960s.

Warwick, 78, last performed in Atlanta in 2008 as part of an AARP concert at then-Philips Arena and played Peachtree City in 2017.

Atlanta-resident Bryson recently experienced a mild heart attack and said during his recovery last month, “You can choose fear or faith.”
