Legendary American singer-songwriter Burt Bacarach performed some of his greatest hits to a packed-out Harpa in Reykjavik yesterday evening.

The 88-year-old composer cut a cheerful, sprightly figure on stage as he performed some of his best-loved songs, including Raindrops keep fall­in’ on my head, Al­fie and That’s what friends are for.

The concert took place in Harpa’s main Eldborg concert hall, which can take up to 1,800 audience members at a time. Bacharach has eight Grammy awards, three Oscars and one Golden Globe.
