Liza Minnelli, whose 2008 Liza’s at the Palace concert won a Tony Award for Best Special Theatrical Event, is coming to town Sunday, June 6, for a one-night stand at the Chicago Theatre, 175 N. State. Liza Minnelli and Friends will feature jazz pianist Billy Stritch leading a quartet as Minnelli presents an evening of classic American popular songs. Tickets are $55-$125, go on sale at noon on March 20, and can be purchased at ticketmaster.com or 800-745-3000.

Minnelli is no stranger to the Chicago Theatre. In the 1980s she appeared there with Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr., in a “Rat Pack revival” concert dubbed The Ultimate Event. In 2000, she was scheduled to perform here in a revue of songs from films directed by her father, Vincente Minnelli, but had to cancel for health reasons.
