AIR SUPPLY ROCK BAND BRINGS THEIR
LIVE TOUR TO THE CASINO AT DANIA BEACH
Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975, the first day of rehearsals for “Jesus Christ Super Star,” in Sydney, Australia, and instantly became friends with their common love for the Beatles and singing. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for original songs that Graham was constantly writing.
They made a demo on a cassette of two songs, including “Love and Other Bruises,” and “If You Knew Me,” and took it to every record company in Sydney . Everyone turned it down but one...CBS Records, who admired the unique style. They made a single in one afternoon that shot to number one on the national charts.
Air Supply was finally born. That same year, they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and throughout the U.S. and Canada playing all of the famous huge venues before Rod would take the stage.
Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply, at that time, had equaled The Beatles’ run of consecutive top five singles. The albums “Lost In Love,” “The One That You Love,” “The One That You Love Now & Forever,” and “The Greatest Hits “sold in excess of 20 million copies “Lost in Love,” was named song of the year in 1980, and, with other singles , sold more than 10 million copies.
Each of their songs has achieved multi-million plays on the radio. Recently they finished filming their live Jerusalem, Israel show for a new DVD that will be coming out soon featuring two new songs.
Air Supply tickets, for Stage 954, are now on sale at The Casino @ Dania Beach for the March 23 and 24, 2017 performance at 8 p.m. For tickets and information call 844-234-SHOW. The Casino is located at 301 E. Dania Beach Boulevard, Dania Beach.
