Petula Clark Comes to New York

If you happen to be in Midtown Manhattan tomorrow, then you should try snagging tickets for a classic legend who is returning to the area to perform for the first time as a solo artist in over 30 years. Although truthfully, tickets to Petula Clark’s concert to be held at Feinstein’s from January 24 to February 4th, are probably all sold out.

79-year old Clark did however join other performers in Washington Square Park in “an effort to energize lower Manhattan in the wake of September 11 attacks” a few months ago however.  But these performances are set to be something midtowners haven’t been privy to in quite a few decades and will probably really rock the town.

The lady has been somewhat of an icon since she was a child.  Since then, she has sold over 70 million records, the most famous of which was probably “Downtown.”  It was in the 1960s that she really became popular and successful.  In addition, Clark starred in various popular musicals including Goodbye, Mr. Chips and on stage in The Sound of Music and Blood Brothers.

While Clark still performs throughout the world, it’s been a long time since she showed up singing and dancing in NYC so this sure is big, exciting news for New Yorkers!
