David Campbell announces tour with John Bucchino

One of Australia’s foremost entertainers, David Campbell has announced his return to the recording studio with a brand new album David Campbell sings John Bucchino. The album will be released to coincide with a tour with Campbell’s Broadway Idol John Bucchino.

Campbell made his name as a cabaret performer in New York in the mid Nineties. It was durin this time that he discovered the work of Broadway composer John Bucchino. Campbell was eager to sing Bucchino's songs and pursued him tirelessly to do so. John acquiesced and they began a friendship that has lasted decades. Together they performed across the globe and recorded soundtracks for Hollywood movies. In their new show, Campbell and Bucchino talk about their lives, careers and the songs that have bound them together.
 
David Campbell has four platinum albums, an ARIA award and three Helpmann Awards. He has taken a break from recording over the last couple of years, whilst he has been hosting Nine Network’s Mornings with Sonia Kruger, but is heading back to the studio to create an album with John Bucchino – back to his roots of Broadway. This is the first recording that David will have undertaken in three years.

John Bucchino is one of New York’s most beloved composers. His work has been recorded by artists such as Art Garfunkel, Liza Minelli and Kristin Chenoweth and performed at venues across the world – from the Sydney Opera House to the White House. His work with Harvey Fierstein ‘A Catered Affair’ opened on Broadway in 2008. Most recently, he was commissioned by Danish producer Soren Moller to compose music and lyrics for ‘Esaura’.
