AIR SUPPLY Is Coming Too

Air Supply is a soft rock duo who had a succession of hits worldwide through the late 1970s and early 1980s. It consists of British guitarist and vocalist Graham Russell and Australian lead vocalist Russell Hitchcock. The trademark tone of Russell Hitchcock’s soaring tenor voice and Graham Russell’s simple yet majestic songs created a group that would forever be known as Air Supply.

They released an album 'Love and Other Bruises' in 1977 and it shot to number one in the National charts. In 1979 they made a record called ‘Life Support’. On this record were some prized songs, including ‘Lost in Love’ which went up to Top 10 in Australia. The second single was ‘All Out of Love’ and that soared the charts even faster. The albums ‘Lost in Love’, ‘The One That You Love’, ‘Now & Forever’ and ‘The Greatest Hits’ sold in excess of 20 million copies. ‘Lost in Love’ was named “Song of The Year” in 1980, and with the other singles sold over 10 million copies.

In 1983, they released their 'Greatest Hits' album with a new single 'Making Love Out Of Nothing At All' written by Jim Steinman. The song was one of their biggest hits ever, spending three weeks at number 2, and the album eventually sold 5 million copies. They were the first western group to tour China, Taiwan and countless other countries, that previously would not allow pop music into their borders. In South America and Asia they became a part of everyone’s life. Their popularity continued to soar in Southeast Asian countries. In July 2005, Air Supply smashed attendance records when in Cuba, they played to 175,000 people in one show.
