Tania Doko and Eric Bazilian Are Performing The Best Of Both Of Them

Bachelor Girl’s Tania Doko has invited The Hooters’ Eric Bazilian to tour Australia with her. It is the first time Eric has played in Australia for almost 40 years on that one and only Hooters Australian tour of 1985.

The Hooters had two Top 10 hits in Australia in 1985, ‘All You Zombies’ and ‘And We Danced’ and both are being played on this tour. He was also the guitarist for Cyndi Lauper’s ‘She’s So Unusual’ and two of those hits are in the set. Eric also wrote Joan Osborne’s hit ‘One of Us’. That’s in here too.

Tania is also no stranger to chart hits. Bachelor Girl’s ‘Buses and Trains’, ‘Lucky Me’ and ‘Permission To Shine’ were played as well as new solo music from both Eric and Tania including the newly recorded ‘International Lover’ from their 2024 release ‘Hers, His & Ours’.
