Kalon Rae and Lauren Halil
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS TOUR
Plus special guest Max Restaino
25 years since Peter Andre burst onto the Australian music scene, the internationally acclaimed, global media star is back with a 25-date tour of the UK in February and March 2019 visiting O2 Apollo Manchester on Friday 1 March 2019. Singer songwriter Kalon Rae and multi-talented artist Lauren Halil will join the tour as support artists, in addition to previously announced Pop star Max Restaino as special guest.
Kalon Rae is a London based singer songwriter with a unique contemporary style, fusing anthemic pop with cinematic, indie and urban influences. He appeared on ITV’s The Voice in 2018. His lyrics, lovingly crafted arrangements and soulful vocals combine to deliver eerily romantic stories which take you on an emotional journey. As Music Director of the Urban Voices Collective he directed the group for the closing ceremony of London 2012 Olympic games, the Baftas 2013 and 2015, the Royal Variety Performance 2013, and the Invictus opening and closing ceremonies. He has also appeared and performed on many UK, European and US TV shows, working with a number of international artists.
Lauren Halil - who at just 17 released her debut single Let Me Be last year - is a fresh multi-talented artist, trained in all genres of dance. She is an accomplished actress, her theatre credits include Matilda the Musical, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Into the Hoods all based in central London. Lauren appeared on Britain’s Got Talent and Got to Dance in her dancing capacity at the young age of 11 years old.
Max Restaino is a young pop star has worked with some of the biggest names in show business – from Gary Barlow to Peter Kay - and has performed as special guest for Rebecca Ferguson on her 20-date Superwoman Tour in 2016, for Steps on their 22-date sold out Arena tour in 2017 and for Shane Filan on his UK theatre tour in spring 2018. Max’s musical influences – from Michael Jackson to ELO and Supertramp - are evident in his music, particularly in the melodies and chords. His debut album The Times It Takes is currently in HMV stores across the UK, with its latest single Sugar Rush entering the Top 10 in the Music Week Pop Club Chart. Max will no doubt prove popular as special guest for Peter Andre on his Celebrating 25 Years Tour.
Peter Andre broke through in Australia with his second single Gimme Little Sign peaking at number three in the Australian charts, followed by the release of his second studio album, Natural, in the UK which reached Number One in the album charts. It included the infamous Mysterious Girl, which shot to Number Two in the UK singles charts, and later went on to hit the top spot when it was re-released by public demand in 2004.
Peter’s music career peaked during the 90s when he became the sixth highest selling artist in the UK. He had several Number One hit singles, two Number One albums and toured all over the world collecting a multitude of national and international accolades along the way. His chart success led to major tours throughout the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia.
During his 25 years in the spotlight, Peter has showcased his diverse musical talent, releasing 12 different albums, all with a unique twist. 2014 saw the singer songwriter release a brand-new sound to add to his collection, with the debut of his swing album Big Night followed in 2015 with Come Fly With Me.
Peter says “This tour has been a long time in the making and I can’t wait to get back out on stage in front of the fans in Manchester that have supported me over the last 25 years. I’m blessed to have had such a great career in entertainment for that time – it is something really special, and this tour will be a celebration of everything I have worked for. I’m delighted that Kalon and Lauren will be joining me also, in addition to Max Restaino; they are all such talents.”
The Celebrating 25 Years Tour will see Peter encompass his musical journey through the years, performing his best loved hits from his early years to his most recent tracks that have reignited the hearts of the nation.
Liz Doogan-Hobbs MBE, CEO of LHG Live said, “We are thrilled to be working with Peter Andre once again, and at such a milestone in his career as he embarks on the Celebrating 25 Years Tour. Kalon and Lauren are the perfect support artists, and Max is a great addition to the line-up as special guest”
