WILLIAM CRIGHTON ANNOUNCES EAST COAST TOUR & 7-INCH VINYL RELEASE
After an amazing sold out show in Melbourne, Anthony Callea announces that he will be touring nationally, performing Ladies & Gentlemen, The Songs of George Michael this September/October, with tickets on sale from TODAY.
Anthony Callea, one of Australia’s most dynamic vocalists, will swoon crowds with a catalogue of George Michael classics from September 19th for the first time travelling to Perth, then onto Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney before an encore and by popular demand performance on October 4th in his home town, Melbourne.
2014 marks 30 years since George Michael released his first solo single and will also see the release of Anthony Callea’s fifth album, which will be packaged as a double disc DVD/CD for release on the 1st August, 2014. The DVD/CD is a 17 track live recording that celebrates George Michael’s exciting catalogue of endless and classic hits. Recorded and filmed live with a 9 piece band at The Palms at Crown in Melbourne, this DVD/CD certainly showcases Callea’s personal stamp on the music of the legendary artist. The live concert DVD/CD also features special guest performances from Casey Donovan, Tim Campbell and John Foreman.
Anthony states, "like many of us, the music of George Michael has influenced me from a young age. As a singer, his vocal ability is undoubtedly one of a kind. The fact that his catalogue is full of classic hits that will live on forever, makes it even more exciting to hit stages around the country to pay tribute to these iconic songs and to one of the finest male vocalists of our time".
2014 also marks the 10-year anniversary since Anthony took the Idol stage, making him a household name. Being 30 years on from George Michael’s first solo single, defining him as one of the greatest pop-stars of all time, from Faith to Freedom and Outside to Amazing, it’s time to get nostalgic with a live concert experience that will celebrate many career highlights.
Anthony Callea is undoubtedly one of Australia’s finest singers and one that is constantly in demand in the live arena. The ARIA award winner is known for his powerful, consistent and passionate voice, with his debut single The Prayer becoming Australia’s the highest selling single of all time, positioning itself at number one on ARIA charts for five weeks. He has toured with international superstars such as Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Diana Ross, Westlife, and was hand picked to perform for both Luciano Pavarotti and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Last year saw him release the ARIA Top 20 album THIRTY & the much-anticipated Top 40 album, This Is Christmas.
