Patti LaBelle takes stage at Mohegan Sun Arena Feb. 10
“Hey Sister, Go Sister, Soul Sister, Go Sister...”
Known for stylish elegance while performing classic R&B, spiritual sonnets and pop — not the least of which was “Lady Marmalade” — Patti LaBelle is a living legend. And she brings her enduring talent and history to 10,000-seat Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday, Feb. 10.
Patricia Louise Holte-Edwards went from choir member to lead vocalist of Patti LaBelle & the Bluebelles, which became Labelle in the 1970s before releasing “Lady Marmalade” and eventually breaking up. Patti LaBelle went solo and became a solo star in 1984 with the likes of “New Attitude”; in 1986 she had a No. 1 duet single with Michael McDonald, “On My Own.”
And LaBelle, who today is 73, kept selling records, with totals reaching 50 million worldwide.
“Each year I grow, and that’s a blessing from God. I do what I can do,” she says in a press release. “It’s not about making money because I don’t need money, but I need to sing.”
Mohegan Sun Arena, 1 Mohegan Sun Blvd., Uncasville. Saturday, Feb. 10, 8 p.m. $39-$19. 800-745-3000.
