Gladys Knight coming to Menominee Nation Arena
SEVEN-TIME GRAMMY WINNER GLADYS KNIGHT TO APPEAR IN OSHKOSH
OSHKOSH, WI – Menominee Nation Arena announced that the iconic seven-time Grammy winner Gladys Knight will appear for one performance only on Saturday, February 24, 2018. The Fox Valley’s newest entertainment venue will follow the January 27 opener, Larry the Cable Guy, with a star of pop, gospel, R&B and soul.
“I’ve said all along that entertainment would be a big part of our operation,” said arena Managing General Partner Greg Pierce, “Adding Gladys Knight to our schedule shows our commitment to providing first-class entertainment in our venue.”
Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. performance will go on pre-sale Wednesday, December 13, at 11 a.m, and to the general public on Friday, December 15, at 11 a.m.
Known as the “Empress of Soul,” Gladys Knight debuted her first album with Gladys Knight & the Pips at the tender age of 16. They hit with songs like “I Heard it Through the Grapevine,” but it was the No. 1 smash, “Midnight Train to Georgia” that established the group as a premier world-wide sensation.
In all, Knight has recorded more than 38 albums, including four solo albums in just the last decade. She earned her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame® in 1995, and the following year, Gladys Knight & the Pips were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame®.
