Gilbert O’Sullivan will perform in Australia for the first time in decades to celebrate his 50th anniversary.
“I am so looking forward to the upcoming concerts in Australia,” Gilbert O’Sullivan said in a statement. “I visited once before some years back for 3 shows but not with a full band. So while it’s been a long time in the making, I hope for all those that are fans of my music we live up to your expectations, and between us all, we have a great tour. Here’s to March 2018!”
Gilbert O’Sullivan released his first single ‘Disappear’ in December 1967 but it wasn’t until 1972’s ‘Alone Again (Naturally)’ when he achieved international fame.
O’Sullivan went on to have a string of hits in the 70s including ‘Ooh Wakka Doo Wakka Day’, ‘Clair’, ‘Get Down’ and Ooh Baby’.
Diana Krall & Michael Buble recorded a version of ‘Alone Again (Naturally) for Diana’s ‘Wallflower’ album in 2015.
