The beloved soft rock duo have announced their return to Australia
AIR SUPPLY will perform all their great hits accompanied by their top-notch band and a twenty-piece orchestra.
Classic All-time classics such as “Lost In Love”, “Love and Other Bruises” and “All Out Of Love” will be given a truly sumptuous presentation from one of Australia’s most successful musical exports.
AIR SUPPLY’s albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits have sold in excess of 40 million copies. “Lost in Love” was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, AIR SUPPLY’s singles have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. “Lost in Love,” “All Out Of Love,” “The One That You Love,” “Sweet Dreams,” and “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All” have each achieved multi-million plays on the radio.
“We love coming back to Australia to where it all started” Russell said.
Russell Hitchcock met Graham Russell when they met on the first day of rehearsals as chorus members in the 1975 Sydney Harry M Miller production of Jesus Christ Superstar. They were drawn together through a mutual love of music, singing and The Beatles, when they quickly learnt they had both seen The Fab Four perform in concert in 1964.
It was not long before the musical duo dominated charts in Australia, New Zealand and the world. Clive Davies famously signed them to Arista Records and in 1980 their US domination began. With international hits such as “Lost In Love”, “Love and Other Bruises”, “Making Love Out Of Nothing At All”, “All Out Of Love”, “Now and Forever” and so many more, they became global superstars. Their unique harmonies combined with Graham’s ability to write exceptional songs made them one of Australia’s first and most successful musical acts.
Russell and Graham have been thrilling audiences for over 40 years. Their songs have stood the test of time and continue to be heard on radio around the world. In 2013 the duo were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame, and October 2018 saw the world premiere in Manilla of ALL OUT OF LOVE, a new musical featuring the iconic music of AIR SUPPLY which opened to rave reviews.
Make sure you get your tickets early to witness gorgeous orchestral renditions of AIR SUPPLY’s catalogue of wonderful songs – these will be very special nights with some of the most beautiful love songs ever written.
