Hit-makers come and go in the fickle world of popular music, but Leo Sayer is a stayer, a powerhouse performer who is still captivating audiences globally after more than 40 years.

Leo Sayer almost needs no introduction. He is held in great esteem as a live performer and recording artist by all age groups, from six to 60. This is as much due to his appearing famously with the Wiggles on DVD, CD and television as it is a by-product of his 40-year showbiz career. His concert history is legendary…

From the Olympic Stadium in Moscow, through Central Park, New York, the Greek Theatre, Los Angeles, the Las Vegas Hilton, Wembley Arena, Hammersmith Apollo and the Royal Albert Hall in London to the State Theatre in Sydney and the Hamer Hall in Melbourne, Leo Sayer has played the lot!

It was in 1971 when Gerard Sayer made the decision to leave his career in commercial art and seriously follow his passion into the world of music and song writing. His manager’s wife thought he looked like a lion with his incredible mane of curly hair. It was that moment that Gerard became Leo – Leo the lion – Leo Sayer.

Leo Sayer has sold millions of albums around the world and has had 20 worldwide top-ten hits during his career, many of these self-penned, and he continues to entertain audiences with an amazing live show featuring his uniquely powerful and recognisable voice. Since his first tour downunder in the early 70s Leo fell in love with Australia and in 2009 became an Australian citizen.

Leo Sayer is truly an amazing character. Some say one of the greatest pop voices of our time. His songs are played constantly in all corners of the globe on a daily basis. At 63 years of age, his energy is palpable. He is planning a new studio album for next year, along with concert tours of Korea, the UK and New Zealand, and he has also created a new Christmas song: Coming Home For Christmas, which has just been released on the Myer Spirit Of Christmas album this festive season.

Leo is a busy man who loves his life and work, and lives for pleasing audiences and music lovers around the globe, totally determined that, whatever happens, ‘The Show Must Go On’.

Leo Sayer – a remarkable artist, an amazing catalogue of songs and a sensational live show. Join Leo for one night and celebrate his amazing career – we know that you will feel like dancing! See him at Twin Towns on Friday.
