David Campbell has a brand new album and a brand new tour

One of Australia’s foremost entertainers, David Campbell is back with a brand new album and a brand new show – David Campbell sings John Bucchino. Campbell will also tour with his Broadway Idol, John Bucchino, in May.

In New York in the mid nineties, when Campbell was getting started in the industry, he discovered the work of Broadway composer John Bucchino (A Catered Affair, It’s Only Life).

Campbell was eager to sing Bucchino’s songs and pursued him tirelessly to do so. John acquiesced and they began a friendship that has lasted decades. Together they performed across the globe and recorded soundtracks for Hollywood movies.

In this deeply personal and intimate show, Campbell and Bucchino return to the stage to talk about their lives, careers and the songs that have bound them together.

David Campbell has four platinum albums, an ARIA award and three Helpmann Awards. He has taken a break from recording over the last couple of years, whilst he has been hosting Nine Network’s Mornings with Sonia Kruger. This is the first recording that David will have undertaken in three years.

John Bucchino is one of New York’s most beloved composers. His work has been recorded by artists such as Art Garfunkel, Liza Minelli and Kristin Chenoweth and performed at venues across the world – from the Sydney Opera House to the White House. His work with Harvey Fierstein, A Catered Affair, opened on Broadway in 2008.

Don’t miss David Campbell performing LIVE with the legendary John Bucchino for a limited number of shows. They’ll be at the Arts Centre in Melbourne, QPAC’s Concert Hall, the Adelaide Cabaret Festival, and the Hayes and Riverside Theatres in Sydney.
