After several years due to commitments with the
many musical productions associated with his company Essgee Entertainment,
makes a triumphant return to the concert stage for a limited time during 2005
to celebrate 30 years in showbusiness.
Gallaher started hosting his own TV kids
program in the mid-seventies and from there he developed his talents into a
national singing and piano-playing star on The Mike Walsh Show. By the end of
the seventies, he had two recording contracts, was a regular on the Walsh Show,
had toured nationally with Debbie Reynolds, won three Mo Awards, was Queensland
Entertainer of the Year and was about to win a Logie Award and to host his own
primetime Variety show on ABC-TV. From there it goes on and on - to the first
musical he did in 1984 (The Pirates
English) to creating a string of hit
stage shows himself with his company Essgee Entertainment which actually
started by producing his own record albums way back when.
Now in concert for the first time in over 5
years, Gallaher returns to the piano and to singing in the way it all began. In
a tribute to the past 30 years he will perform a full anthology of songs and
compositions including many his fans will know from his five gold albums.
Combined with songs from his musicals, some new material and hits like
(which was a Number One for he and
Love), the tour is planned to cover all
major centres including a regional tour of Queensland with Julie Anthony in May.
UPDATE: Simon & Julie's tour of Queensland was a triumphant success and they now plan to tour throughout New South Wales and Victoria in the coming months.
To also commemorate this milestone, Simon's latest CD has been released
called The Simon Gallaher Silver
Anniversary Collection. It has 20 of
Simon's personally chosen favourites from his past 5 albums.
Order it now.
