Liza Minnelli cancels Nashville performance


Liza Minnelli has canceled a string of shows on her U.S. tour because she has bronchial pneumonia, including a performance at Nashville’s Tennessee Performing Arts Center on November 13.

A special online ticket package was available for patrons who wished to attend both the Liza Minnelli concert and Artrageous, the annual benefit for Nashville CARES which was also being held that night. Those who had purchased the ticket package will be contacted once more information is available. TPAC is attempting to reschedule this performance for another time once the tour resumes.

Minnelli has won three Tony Awards, an Oscar, an Emmy and two Golden Globes in a career that spans multiple media. She has also received the Grammy Legend Award for her contributions and influence in the recording field, along with many other honors and awards.

Founded in 1987 as a benefit for Nashville CARES, Artrageous® has raised more than $2 million for the support of AIDS education and services in Middle Tennessee. A group of Nashville’s most prominent gallery owners began the event as a response to the AIDS epidemic and its devastating impact on the arts community. In recent years, Artrageous has been staged entirely by the volunteers of Artrageous, Inc., a not-for-profit, tax-exempt corporation.
