“Oh, you are a funny person. First of all, I don’t clean the house. And second of all, I don’t listen to music when I’m at home. Isn’t that weird? Probably because I’ve always got music in my head, and anyone I’ve ever slept with tells me that I have one foot that keeps time all night long.”

Queen of ’70s pop radio Helen Reddy steps into the spotlight at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy at 8pm on Thursday evening (March 21). Tickets are $28 & $36. Hear her roar…

“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.
