After we tragically lost David in April 2016, The David Gest Foundation was set up to help raise money for some of the great causes close to his heart. This tour will raise much needed funds to continue the good work. Soul icon Dionne Warwick is patron of the David Gest Foundation and has welcomed news of the 2018 tour:

"I have been part of David's tours, and as I look at the incredible line-up of talent that will be coming to 12 cities in the UK to dazzle you, I know a good time will be had by all. Get your tickets now for a major musical treat!" Enjoy, Dionne Warwick.

A statement from the promoter of David Gest's Soul Legends:


Due to circumstance beyond our control, the ‘DAVID GEST’S SOUL LEGENDS’ Tour will be delayed. The new date will be 28 October.  

We are extremely proud of the show’s fantastic legacy. This is a huge project encompassing a lot of legends.  To ensure that this ambitious project is realised we’ve needed to reschedule the tour to autumn 2018.  We have a fantastic mix of timeless artists and cannot wait to bring this unique show to life. Existing tickets will remain valid for the new date or can be refunded.


We remain incredibly grateful for all the loyalty, patience and support fans of the late David Gest and the amazing artists have shown us. The Tour will continue to support charities close to David’s heart.
