Verdict: Four stars.

THERE are few artists who can claim bragging rights to providing a lifetime of hits.

Dionne Warwick however, is one of the few, and she proved just that with an intimate performance at Glasgow’s Clyde Auditorium on Saturday night.

Appearing on stage, looking more youthful than her 77 years, she had a twinkle in her eye as she promised the audience the best of her back catalogue.

“You will be sitting for quite a long time,” she said before joking, “easy for you”.

Goosebumps quickly filled the arena as she showcased the power of her voice opening with her 1962 debut Don’t Make Over.

The Burt Bacharach and Hal David masterpieces continued with Walk On By, Anyone Who Had A Heart and Reach Out For Me.

While Bacharach and David created the iconic songs, they would have never had quite the same ring to them without Dionne’s soulful voice and that was evident as she sang (There’s) Always Something There To Remind Me.

She paid tribute to the iconic’s hitmakers amazing repertoire with a cover of The Carpenters Close To You.

I Say A Little Prayer was a special moment during the show as Dionne let the spotlight shine on her son David Elliot who proved he is every bit as good as his famous mother vocally.

Dionne’s show was simple, with none of the razzmatazz many artists of her calibre usually surround themselves with.

She let the music do the talking as she sat on a stool and showcased her impressive vocal range.

Her talented backing band were the perfect accompaniment to her one woman show which continued to deliver some of best songs that have ever graced the pop charts.

The 1982 Bee Gees’ penned Heartbreaker was a moment to remember. For a song Dionne was reported to not be initially fond of, it has to be one of her best and given the success it had in the 80s it is clear her fans think the same.

A section of the show was dedicated to hits from the movies with Alfie, Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head and The Look of Love among the songs performed.

A duet with her granddaughter Cheyenne was simply beautiful and hit a chord with the audience after Dionne explained Love Will Find A Way was originally recorded with her late cousin Whitney Houston.

Much of Dionne’s music has a timeless sound and is of an era that it’s hard to imagine it will ever be replicated in the same way.

That said, seeing her perform those hits live gave the songs a new meaning and the Glasgow audience an experience they will never forget.
