Anthony Callea’s seventh album, ARIA NUMBER 1 HITS IN SYMPHONY has debuted at #1 on the ARIA album charts. This is Anthony’s third album to enter the charts at #1 and sees him join an elite club of only four other Australian male solo artists. Industry icons Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, John Butler Trio and Keith Urban are now joined by Anthony sharing similar chart success, cementing the future pathway for his 13 year long career to date.
Coinciding with the release, Anthony launched his album to a sold out audience last Friday with The Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Hamer Hall. A standing ovation acknowledged his performance of the new album as he delivered his version of anthems derived from the official ARIA music charts. This is the first #1 ARIA album to feature the MSO since 1987 with Sir Elton John’s LIVE IN AUSTRALIA WITH THE MELBOURNE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.
“I love that this album with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has connected with so many people and debuted at the number 1 spot on our charts. ARIA Number 1 Hits In Symphony is such an epic sounding album, an album that is filled with passion, beautifully produced, recorded, orchestrated, played and it was a privilege to sing and interpret these iconic lyrics and melodies that are part of our musical landscape, “ said Anthony.
Anthony has delivered a string of multi-Platinum, Gold, Number 1 and Top 40 releases spanning over a decade, with his ARIA #1 self-titled debut album delivering the Highest Selling Australian Single, 4 x Platinum ‘The Prayer’. ARIA NUMBER 1 HITS IN SYMPHONY joins Anthony’s sixth album, BACKBONE, debuting at #1 on the ARIA album chart, an incredible accomplishment and career milestone.
If you missed the sold-out Hamer Hall show, a national tour is confirmed for 2018 with ARIA NUMBER 1 HITS – IN CONCERT which will be Anthony’s biggest and most exciting concert experience to date.
