Fall in love again when musical theatre stars Bobby Fox and Michael Falzon join forces at the Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) on Wednesday 10 June 2015 to perform the legendary Costello and Bacharach album, Painted From Memory – The Music of Bacharach and Costello.
Accompanied by a nine-piece orchestra Michael Falzon (We Will Rock You, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Rock of Ages) and Bobby Fox (Jersey Boys, The Fantastic Mr. Fox) along with special guest Luke Kennedy promise outstanding vocals and emotional surprises in a showcase of internationally adored music.
In the late nineties Burt Bacharach and Elvis Costello joined forces to create the remarkable and timeless album Painted From Memory featuring classic Bacharach songs such as I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself and I’ll Never Fall in Love Again. These and other timeless tunes are recreated in Painted From Memory on the Concert Hall stage, with musical direction from Isaac Hayward.
After unanimous critical acclaim as ‘Galileo’ in We Will Rock You, Michael Falzon continued to make his mark on Australian and international stages, starring in Hedwig and the Angry Inch and as ‘Stacee Jaxx’ in Rock of Ages. Falzon has toured arenas in Australia, Europe and the UK in Jeff Wayne’s The War of the Worlds and also appears frequently as a soloist with many Australian symphony orchestras.
Bobby Fox is the zany, smooth and dazzling stage and recording star who “owes a little bit to Franki Valli and the Four Seasons”. Known lovingly as The Fantastic Mr. Fox, this charming groover is a four times World Irish Dance Champion, solo artist, and man of the stage with productions like Jersey Boys, Mamma Mia!, Leader of the Pack, and We Will Rock You under his star-studded belt.
Season two runner up on television’s The Voice Australia and former Ten Tenors member Luke Kennedy is a versatile recording and performance artist, who has achieved a number one single on the iTunes charts and a Top Ten hit in the ARIA charts. Most recently Luke toured Australia as a special guest on Ricky Martin’s national tour and opened the Ashes in 2013 for Cricket Australia singing the national anthem.
Together at QPAC for one night only, Falzon and Fox with special guest Kennedy will perform a unique reimagining of this classic album along with other memorable Bacharach and Costello hits.
Painted From Memory – the Music of Bacharach and Costello is presented by QPAC in association with Queensland Cabaret Festival, Asia Theatricals and Good Egg Creative. Book now via qpac.com.au or call 136 246.
