“I’m always so excited to return to Britain, which I’ve considered to be a second home for many years. I have so many friends there and I look forward to being back again for these special intimate evenings. Whenever I do concerts people always say they want to hear about me growing up, being on Broadway, in the movies, the people I’ve met and worked with… so this will give me a chance to share a lot more of those stories. I can’t wait to see you all again!” Liza Minnelli
