AIR SUPPLY - Iconic Australian pop/rock duo Air Supply will bring their Lost In Love Experience tour to the Paramount Theatre! 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 and 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.

THE TEMPTATIONS - For more than fifty years, The Temptations have propelled popular music with a series of smash hits and sold-out performances throughout the world. Their iconic hits include "My Girl," "It’s Growing," "Since I Lost My Baby," "Get Ready," "Ain’t Too Proud to Beg," "Beauty Is only Skin Deep," and "I Wish It Would Rain," and many, many more. In addition to winning multiple Grammy awards, The Temptations won an Emmy in 1998 for the NBC mini-series that chronicled the group’s history and was a prime time triumph. The band’s current line up consists of Otis Williams, Ron Tyson, Terry Weeks, Larry Braggs, and Willie Greene Jr.

THE FOUR TOPS - The Four Tops first Motown hit was "Baby I Need Your Loving" in 1964, which made them stars. Their track record on the label during the 1960s is indispensable to any retrospective of that decade. Their songs, soulful and bittersweet, were across-the-board successes. In 1990, with 24 Top 40 pop hits to their credit, the Four Tops were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. They continue to be a hit in concert, touring incessantly, a towering testament to the enduring legacy of the Motown Sound they helped shape and define.

CECILE MCLOREN SALVANT'S OGRESSE - Vocalist, composer and three-time Grammy Award-winner Salvant presents her new 90-minute song cycle in collaboration with arranger and conductor Darcy James Argue. Since her emergence a decade ago, Salvant has tapped into a line of classic jazz vocalists: Bessie Smith, Betty Carter, Abbey Lincoln. Her voice is startlingly expressive and rich, with a capacious lower register that brings to mind Sarah Vaughan. Now, at age 30, Salvant has blossomed into an artist and composer with her own unique vision. The evidence is to be found in Ogresse, her new 90-minute song cycle - a dark fairy tale, telling the story of a devilish monster-woman with a taste for human flesh.
