Gilbert O’Sullivan Sang A Real Lot of Songs At His First Australian Show Ever

Gilbert O’Sullivan delivered 31 songs live at his first Sydney show ever on the weekend.

It is amazing to consider that Gilbert O’Sullivan is touring Australia for the very first time to mark the 50th anniversary of his first release, a song called ‘Disappear’ that appears three songs into the set.

Gilbert O’Sullivan was known as Ray O’Sullivan for that first release. His manager Gordon Mills changed his name to Gilbert O’Sullivan following the partner of naming his clients after historic figures. Mills’ other clients were Gerry Dorsey, who he called Engelbert Humperdinck and Thomas Woodward, who he called Tom Jones.

While Gilbert O’Sullivan got through 30 plus songs he did leave out one hit. ‘Ooh Baby’, a US, UK and Australian hit song from 1973, wasn’t in the setlist.
