The TEN Tenors are undoubtedly one of Australia’s most successful touring entertainment groups of all time, 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. Their overall vision is to create a feeling of comfort and warmth for families and will do that with a dazzling evening of Yuletide classics and present-day holiday melodies wrapped in hallmark harmonies and sizzling new arrangements. Celebrated for their colorful 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. 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 Tenors have also performed alongside countless stars and 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. The TEN Tenor’s are no strangers to television either, with appearances in some of the world’s biggest broadcast events including performing for Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure. Long-serving member of The TEN Tenors, Scott Muller says “So many people, particularly
men, turn up to a show, having been dragged by their wives, arms folded, thinking they are going to watch us croon to the ladies and serve up yet another watery classical- crossover show. Not too far into the show they realize 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.”
