The TEN Tenors: Bio

The TEN Tenors are undoubtedly one of Australia's greatest entertainment success stories, with more than 90 million people worldwide witnessing their unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal power. Following 16 years of sell-out performances across the globe, including more than 2000 of their own headline concerts, The TEN Tenors have cemented their place as Australia's premier classical-crossover group.

Celebrated for their colourful repertoire, breathtaking arrangements and powerful live performances, The TEN Tenors respectfully tip their hats not only to the great classical composers, but to contemporary music's most popular artists. From Buckley to Bocelli, an evening with The TEN Tenors is guaranteed to surprise and delight in equal measure.

Amidst their own explosive live concert experiences and remarkable achievements including six platinum and gold records and over 3.5 million concert tickets sold, the TEN have also performed alongside countless music legends including Andrea Bocelli, André Rieu, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Keith Urban, Rod Stewart, Alanis Morissette, Sarah Brightman, Willie Nelson, Katherine Jenkins and Christina Aguilera.

They're no strangers to television either, with iconic appearances on some of the world's biggest broadcast events including performing exclusively for chat show queen Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Ultimate Australian Adventure,appearing on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for an audience of 32 million viewers, and Poland 2012 UEFA Cup in Warsaw.

Long-serving member of The TEN, Scott Muller says "So many people, particularly men, turn up to a show, having been dragged by their wives, arms folded, thinking they're going to watch us croon to the ladies and serve up yet another watery classical- crossover show. Not too far into the show they realise we are a group of down-to-earth Aussie blokes, that have power and guts in our performance and they leave not only pleasantly surprised, but fans themselves."

The group's producer, D-J Wendt adds, "We like to think audiences come to our show to hear arias and classical pieces that will give them goose bumps like they have never felt before. With our shows, we know they will get that, but we promise to also make you feel like you have just rocked out or been to the best party you have been to in ages."

In the blazing heat of the Australian summer, 2016, The Ten Tenors were in rehearsal in Melbourne. They were doing their very first run through of David Bowie's iconic song, Heroes when the Twitter feed came through announcing David had just passed away. Just a few months later, the tragic news that Prince had also passed away. Although this album doesn't honour all the fallen artists in history, it is our intention to salute each through those we pay tribute to here. In the way that Roger Waters and Dave Gilbert penned the title track for their friend Syd Barrett that they missed so deeply when he left their band. Put simply, to all the lost artists, we wish you were here.
