Considering just how special a time Christmas is, The Ten Tenors are proud to announce a series of special concert dates across Queensland that will see them bring Christmas cheer to all.
Home for Christmas will start in Bundaberg on 1 December at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre and will be filled with some Christmas classics and even a few surprises.
The Ten Tenors’ Cameron Barkley said Christmas was such a wonderful time of the year and last year was the first time in eight years that the tenors hadn’t been on tour for it.
“This year it will be really special to get back on stage to sing all these holiday favourites,” he said.
“When we were planning the concert, each of the boys had a different answers to the songs they wanted to include on the list, but that is the beauty of 10 personalities which means there will be a Christmas song for everyone.
“Classics like Joy to the World, All I Want For Christmas, Feliz Navidad and Last Christmas are all in the show, as well as some of the best loved TTT versions of songs like Bohemian Rhapsody and Hallelujah.”
The Ten Tenors have criss-crossed the globe for 25 years, playing more than 2500 performances over 32 countries, while also recording 15 studio albums with world-wide sales of more than 1.2 million.
It also supports various charitable causes and organisations, raising more than $11 million for charities world-wide.
The group’s tour in July this year was also well-received, with Cameron saying the response was overwhelming.
“After a year and a half off, which has seen the live performance industry brought to its knees, it was a very emotional return to the stage for all the boys,” he said.
“To be able to continue this momentum here in Australia is fantastic and we’re all crossing our fingers that this will be the last stint in quarantine!”
Bundaberg is ready to turn it on for these visitors.
“It will be our first time seeing the Christmas lights in Bundy because in those eight years performing together at Christmas time, we have never presented this show in Australia,” Cameron said.
“To be able to bring this show to Australia and indeed regional Queensland which is the spiritual home of the Tenors is thrilling – although it will be a little different singing about snow and a winter wonderland in the sweltering Queensland summer!”
