In 1975, 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. Over the last 40 years, Air Supply has experienced extraordinary success, including seven consecutive Top Five singles, 17 studio albums and 19 compilation albums, platinum and multi-platinum status, and induction into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame. To this day, they continue to make new music and tour the globe.
More on Air Supply: Graham Russell & Russell Hitchcock met on May 12, 1975 in Sydney, Australia; they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles and, of course, singing. They made a single in one afternoon and it shot to number one on the national charts. Air Supply was born! That same year, they opened for Rod Stewart across Australia and then throughout the U.S. and Canada.
In 1980, "Lost in Love" became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Seven top-five singles later, Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles. "Lost in Love", "All Out of Love", "The One That You Love", "Sweet Dreams", and "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All" have each achieved multi-million plays on the radio.
However, it is the live shows that always hold audiences captive around the world. They were the first Western group to tour China, Taiwan, and countless other countries that before would not allow pop music across their borders. In South America and Asia they became a part of everyone's life. In 1988, Air Supply was asked to participate in Australia's bicentennial celebration and to play for HRH Prince Charles and HRH Princess Diana. In July 2005, Air Supply smashed attendance records when, in Cuba, at one show they played to 175,000 people.
