UK musical icon Leo Sayer has announced details of an exclusive fully seated headline performance at The Olympia Theatre on Sunday, 3rd of November 2013 as part of his “Silverbird Anniversary Tour”.
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 songwriting. 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 down under in the early ‘70s, Leo fell in love with Australia and in 2009 became an Australian citizen.
Still celebrating four decades in the music business Leo will be touring with all star Australian band throughout 2013, taking his musical party around Australia, Asia and New Zealand. Plans are also underway for tours of England and Europe later in the year. This year’s show features all the hits that have encompassed Leo’s forty year journey. A journey that has seen him fill stadiums and festivals around the globe in concert. Collect a Grammy and numerous other record awards, and ride a wonderful roller coaster of career highs and lows in the crazy world of the music industry. Leo has come out of it all, a survivor, smiling with energy and enthusiasm to burn.
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, and with no signs of slowing down, his voice is as strong as it has ever been. His creativity is constantly flowing, fuelled by his boyish enthusiasm and love for all kinds of music, and the art of songwriting. At home he is always working in his studio, recording and writing new songs for the future.
Leo Sayer in Concert features all his hits including You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, Thunder In My Heart, When I Need You, Long Tall Glasses, Orchard Road, More Than I Can Say and many more. Songs that captivated a generation around the world and had Australians glued to their sets each week on Countdown.
