Queen of every Woman’s Anthem: Gloria Gaynor Minneapolis


Posted on 21st July, by ParkandShop

One in three people make it through a rough patch solely with a steady diet of “I Will Survive.” Gloria Gaynor has been there for your wins, your losses, and everything in-between. And if that song is all you know her for, you’re long overdo to dig deeper.

Gaynor will be playing the Dakota in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday, August 10th, touring the release of her latest album. A gospel album, it’s as soulful as you can get, and even if you don’t need a battle cry, is cathartic on the deepest of levels.

If you want to remedy pain you didn’t even know you had, be healed with the music of a musical powerhouse. The Dakota website describes what to expect:

“After decades spent as the reigning Queen of Disco, Gloria Gaynor is announcing the release of her new gospel album, Testimony (June 7th). Recording for the first time in Nashville, Gaynor uplifts listeners with a carefully-chosen selection of classic hymns, self-penned songs, as well as a stirring cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Man of Peace.’”

Tickets are $60 – $80; show starts at 9:30 pm. You can park for just $6 at the Park and Shop ramps (after 4 pm.)
