As previously reported, Liza Minnelli is slated to appear in her first concert in more than a year this summer. She will perform on Friday, July 24 at 8 p.m. at the IP Casino Resort Spa in Biloxi, Mississippi. And, according to AL.com, she has a surprise in store for the audience.

"Well, I try and do the things that people like. Like 'New York, New York' and 'Cabaret' ... But I also try to put in things that I know people there haven't heard. So it's a big surprise, kids. I'm excited about coming," she told the site.

She added: "I'm trying to add a little more hopeful side. I mean the songs I choose. I try and go from what I've learned, and also what I'd like to hear, what I enjoy. New things and old things. ... I like to sing something that makes you feel slightly different when you walk out. Happier, and satisfied."

Minnelli, who just finished a successful stint in rehab, was recently named the recipient of the 2015 JACK VALENTI - LOS ANGELES, ITALIA LEGEND AWARD.

The star followed her parents into the entertainment arena at the tender age of 2, co-starring with her mother in the 1949 film IN THE GOOD OLD SUMMERTIME.

In 1965, she won a Tony Award for her performance in FLORA, THE RED MENACE, becoming the youngest-ever actress to win a Tony for a musical role; it was the first of four Tonys she would earn.

She is the only singer in history to sell out Carnegie Hall for three consecutive weeks. Her hit songs include "Liza (With a "Z")," "Theme from New York, New York," "Cabaret," "Walking Papers," "Quiet Thing," "Old Friends," "Maybe This Time," "Little Do They Know," "I (Who Have Nothing)," "God Bless the Child."

Her movie credits include 1972's CABARET, for which she won an Academy Award; NEW YORK, NEW YORK, co-starring Robert De Niro; and the ARTHUR films with Dudley Moore.

She has appeared as herself on TV in SMASH, THE VOICE UK, SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, THE APPRENTICE, and more, and is well known for her portrayal of 'Lucille Austero' in the Netflix comedy ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT.
