The perpetually effervescent, Grammy-award winning, international chart-topping British music legend Leo Sayer continues to pack houses worldwide. Following the success of his sold-out UK tour, Leo is back and bringing his Just A Boy tour to Australia again with a select series of concerts, by popular demand. Taking his all-star band out on the road, his highly anticipated shows will feature all his greatest hits, as well as material from his new international release, Selfie.
Known the world over for his classic songs, which include Thunder In My Heart, More Than I Can Say, Moonlighting, The Show Must Go On, One Man Band, I Can’t Stop Loving You, Orchard Road and the transatlantic number one smash hits When I Need You and You Make Me Feel Like Dancing. Leo is excited to be on tour in his adopted homeland again and can’t wait to give audiences a high-energy concert, jam-packed full of hits, and more.
Australian audiences will have the chance to hear some of the newly released tracks from Selfie, an international album available through UK label Demon. It is the first album that is completely performed, produced and arranged solely by Leo. He also penned all of the tracks, with the exception of three co-writes. At this point in his career, the acclaimed songwriter wanted to make an album entirely by himself. The album was recorded in his home studio in country New South Wales and the result is 12-tracks of great songs with thought-provoking lyrics.
In the more than four decades since he embarked on his illustrious music career, Leo Sayer has written songs for some of the most influential names in the business, including the likes of Tina Turner, Cliff Richard, Roger Daltrey, Dolly Parton, Three Dog Night, Gene Pitney and Jennifer Warnes. He is revered world-wide for his songwriting and his live performances and is one of the most well-respected musicians on the touring circuit today. Audiences can expect these songs and more as the man they describe as ‘one of the greatest pop voices of our time’ takes music fans on a musical journey that features more than 20 international Top 10 singles and 5 global Top 10 albums.
There isn’t much Leo Sayer hasn’t done throughout his career. He’s made appearances with The Muppets, The Wiggles and features on the Charles Angels’ soundtrack – endearing him to music fans young and old. He has performed at every kind of venue imaginable, from intimate showcases, to the Olympic Stadium in Moscow, Central Park in New York, the Las Vegas Hilton, the Royal Albert Hall in London and in his now home of Australia, the State Theatre in Sydney and Hamer Hall in Melbourne.
Leo became an Australian citizen in 2009 and hasn’t looked back since. He is working just as solidly in his music career now as when he started and his music is reaching new audiences. In 2007 his classic hit Thunder In My Heart got a dance re-make, which went #1 throughout England and Europe. The age range of audiences at a Leo Sayer show is massive – his music appeals to young and old and his shows are energy packed from the beginning. His charismatic persona endears audiences immediately and he always has the audience on their feet. An evening with Leo is certainly unforgettable and most importantly fun and shows to celebrate his birthday year are guaranteed to be one massive party.
Leo’s new international album, Selfie, will be available at all shows.
