Win a Pair of FREE TICKETS to Helen Reddy @ Troy Savings Bank Music Hall

“Delta Dawn”…
“Angie Baby”…
“You and Me Against the World”…
“Ain’t No Way to Treat a Lady”…

She was the Queen of ’70s Pop, and for much of that decade, you simply couldn’t listen to the radio without hearing Helen Reddy, who racked up a whopping 15 Top 10 hits during that time. She topped the charts at No. 1 three times in the same year. She hosted her own prime-time network variety series. She was the very first winner of the Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist trophy from the American Music Awards. And she was the first Australian to win a Grammy Award.

But no question about it, Helen Reddy will always be best remembered for her signature “I Am Woman,” which became an enduring, bona fide, feminist anthem.

Then in 2002, she retired from show business, earned a degree in clinical hypnotherapy and, for the past decade, has lived quietly Down Under in Sydney.

But now she’s back in the spotlight, touring again for the first time since 2002, after reportedly being pleasantly surprised by the warm reception she received when she sang at her sister’s birthday party.

Helen Reddy returns to town at 8pm on Thursday, March 21, when she will take the stage at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy. Tickets are $28 and $36.

BUT WAIT… we’re giving away a pair of FREE TICKETS for the concert to a lucky Nippertown reader! To enter the contest, just post a comment below. Please leave your email address, too. We won’t publish it, but we’ll use it to contact you if you win. Deadline to enter is 12noon on Friday (March 15), when the winner will be selected at random and notified that afternoon. Good luck! Congratulations to the winner, who has been notified by email.

    Clearly remember being in Catholic school when “I Am Woman” came out…… Sister Paul Marie taught our girl scout troop the words to the song. Boy, times have changed!!! Would love to see Helen Reddy perform live.
