Iconic Australian pop/rock duo Air Supply will bring their Lost In Love Experience tour to the Paramount Theatre in Oakland on Saturday, October 5. The tour supports their newest live album Lost In Love Experience, which was released in February of this year, and recorded with the Prague Symphony Orchestra.
With a career spanning over four decades, Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975, at rehearsals for "Jesus Christ Superstar" in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. Since then, the duo continue to perform worldwide with over 130 concerts annually, and just marked their 5000th concert in Las Vegas last year.
In 1980 "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts and was named Song of the Year. 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, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits sold in excess of 20 million copies.
The trademark sound of Russell Hitchcock's soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell's simple yet majestic songs created a unique sound that would forever be known as Air Supply.
