With over seventy Top 40 hits that span genres from country music classics like 'Only Love Can Break a Heart' to the pure pop ballad '(They Long to Be) Close to You,' Burt Bacharach has had one of the most prolific and multidimensional careers in the music industry. While the American pianist, composer and songwriter may have gotten his start as a musical arranger for cult 50s starlet Marlene Dietrich's night club act, it was his long-term partnership with lyricist Hal David that cemented Bacharach's reputation as a songwriting powerhouse. The fruitful duo composed hits for a list of artists that reads like a Who's Who of music in the 60s, 70s, and 90s, and includes The Beatles, The Carpenters, Aretha Franklin, Cher, Pati Labelle, Neil Diamond, and their long-time collaborator and muse, Dionne Warwick.

Famous for songs like 'Walk On By,' 'I Say a Little Prayer' and 'That's What Friends Are For,' Bacharach is just as well-known for his work composing movie soundtracks. Both hardcore fans and newcomers alike will recognize Bacharach's theme from What's New Pussycat? and the ubiquituous, Oscar-winning 'Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head' from classic Western flick Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. A departure from his earlier work, Bacharach's last solo album, 2005's At This Time, featured his own lyrics, as well as cameos by Elvis Costello and, somewhat intriguingly, the rapper Dr Dre.

Performing in Rio de Janeiro for the first time since 1999, Bacharach's repertoire at Vivo Rio is expected to stay true to the accomplished composer's roots, featuring his most memorable hits in a show that will delight nostalgic fans and lovers of golden oldies alike.
