Liza Minnelli took an Uber to a concert on Saturday

The star was driven to the show last week by a ex- Olympic powerful after turning to the taxi app so she wouldn't let her fans down.

She had flown from Los Angeles to Charlotte, North Carolina to catch a connecting flight to Wilmington, Delaware.
