VICAR STREET, Dublin : Thursday 5 December

Air Supply – the duo that brought you Lost in Love, All Out of LoveEvery Woman in the World and The One That You Love, just to name a few – return to Dublin on Thursday 5 December. Australian-born Russell Hitchcock and UK native Graham Russell met while appearing together in an Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar, forming Air Supply in the mid-Seventies. Their first Australian single, Love And Other Bruises, was a hit in Australia in 1976 and their self-titled debut album went gold in six weeks. In 1980 their album Lost In Love was a major worldwide hit in 1980 with singles like Lost in Love, All Out of Love, Making Love Out of Nothing At All and Every Woman in the World.

Still inspiring waves of romantic frenzy across the globe three decades later, Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock of Air Supply have been touring almost non-stop these past few years, keeping a diverse international schedule that includes the US, The Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, Israel, Brazil and even Vietnam. In July 2005, their live DVD, It Was 30 Years Ago Today celebrated 30 years of success around the world and in that same month, Air Supply smashed attendance records when, in Cuba, at one show they played to 175,000 people.

In May 2010, the long-awaited album, Mumbo Jumbo was released. It was produced by Russell and engineered by Odds On’s Sean O’Dwyer, whose credits include Pink Floyd, Randy Newman and Blink-182. Among the 14-tracks, released by Odds On’s label, was the first single Dance With Me which earned them a feature article in Billboard Magazine titled “Still Supplying The Hits After 35 Years.”

Just weeks after composer and vocalist Graham Russell was honored with a BMI Million-Air Certificate recognizing 3 million performances of the duo’s hit “All Out Of Love,” Air Supply’s new song was the #1 most added track on the FMQB AC40 Chart, and also one of the most added on the R&R (Radio and Records) AC Chart and the Mediabase AC chart.

In 2013, the duo was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association’s Hall of Fame. Air Supply celebrated their 40th anniversary in 2015 and continue to delight audiences all over the world.
