Leo Sayer – Just A Boy At 70
Hot off the heels of his sold-out 2016, 2017 and 2018 UK tours, Grammy-award winning, international chart topping, British music legend Leo Sayer is touring Australia and New Zealand with his all-star band for a series of special shows to celebrate his 70th year on earth. The run of dates throughout February, March and April 2019, will see Leo traverse his amazing back catalogue. The Just A Boy At 70 tour will head straight to the UK and Europe again for the northern summer touring season at the end of the Australian run, so this is the only chance Aussie audiences will have to share in Leo’s birth year bash!
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 back on tour in his adopted homeland and can’t wait to celebrate his auspicious anniversary with audiences through these high energy concerts, jam-packed with hits from start to finish.
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 is also currently celebrating the UK release of his The Gold Collection, which saw him appear in the UK Top 40 for the 15th time. The album will be available exclusively to Australian audiences on the Just A Boy At 70 tour.
