Amidst incredible international success, this Australian troupe has become known as one of the hardest working touring acts, performing an average of 250 shows per year across seven continents. The group had groundbreaking achievements in 2010, gaining new audiences in South America, Sweden, Japan and the Baltic States. All in all, the Ten Tenors have sold over 3.5 million concert tickets worldwide.
“I’ve seen this group in previous years and have been blown away at the talent level they bring to the stage,” remembers Rachel Gragg, Senior Director of Marketing at DPAC. “Having sold out cities worldwide, DPAC looks forward to presenting a brand new tour that will have audiences hearing all of their favorite Broadway hits.”
With four gold and two platinum albums to their name, the group has also produced two gold and one platinum DVD’s that has forced the Tenors to continually challenge themselves and their audience. The release of their tenth studio album, Double Platinum, saw the Ten Tenors surprising audiences with a new look and new songs. The album debuted at #7 in New Zealand.
Producer D-J Wendt says of Double Platinum, “we like to think audiences come to our show to hear Arias that will give them goose bumps like they have never felt before.” Adding to the feel of their live show, long-serving member Dominic Smith says “so many people, particularly men, turn up to a show having been dragged by their wives… not too far into the show, the realize we are a group of down-to-earth Aussie blokes that have the power and guts in our performance and they leave not only pleasantly surprised, but fans themselves.”
Indeed, it is the Ten Tenors unique approach to opera that has powered their rise to the top. Bringing rock and classical music together, kicking and screaming, they have created a sound that is uniquely theirs. Expect them to bring the same contrast of raw power and soothing beauty to this special evening of Broadway – only at DPAC.
