Liza returns to Royal Festival Hall

Liza Minnelli is returning to the Royal Festival Hall 40 years after her last appearance there as part of a celebration of Cabaret-era Berlin.

The star appeared at the venue, on London's Southbank, in 1973 in a performance of her solo show Liza with a Z.

She said: "I'm always so excited to perform in London. I have so many friends and fans there I consider it my second home. And to be returning to the Royal Festival Hall after all this time is thrilling; I remember bringing Liza with a Z there in the early 70s and having such a swell time. So I can't wait to see all you guys again."

Liza, the daughter of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland, won the best actress Oscar for her performance as Sally Bowles in the 1972 film Cabaret which is set in Germany during the Nazis' rise to power.

Her concert, next March, will see her perform songs from the hit musical and is part of the Southbank Centre's Berlin in the '20s and '30s weekend which will also include a screening of the film.

Jude Kelly, artistic director of the Southbank Centre, said: "We are delighted to welcome back Liza Minnelli to the Royal Festival Hall to perform as part of our year-long The Rest Is Noise Festival. Fosse's Cabaret is one of the most iconic, intimate depictions of 1930s' Berlin and we are thrilled that the artist who so brilliantly gave life to the complex character of Sally Bowles can take part as we look back at this particular moment in history."
