Australian soft-rock group Air Supply, a staple of early '80s radio, is returning to The Orleans Showroom for three shows August 30 through September 1.

Englishman Graham Russell and Australian Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 while performing in the Australian production of "Jesus Christ Superstar." Later that year, the duo formed Air Supply and released their first smash hit and self-titled debut album, reaching gold in Australia. After opening for Rod Stewart's tour in the United States in the late '70s, Air Supply had an international breakthrough and signed a distribution deal with Artista Records in 1980.

Their album, "Lost in Love," featured three U.S. top five singles, including the title track, which was the fastest-selling single in the world; "Every Woman in the World"; and "All Out of Love." Over the next three years, Air Supply produced hit after hit, including "Just Another Woman," "The One That You Love," "Here I Am," "Sweet Dreams," "Even The Nights Are Better" and "Making Love Out Of Nothing At All," which reached No. 2 on the Billboard charts in 1983. Their most recent album, "Mumbo Jumbo," was released in May 2010, and their most recent single "Sanctuary" was released in December 2011.

With 30 albums and more than 15 hit singles, Air Supply is renowned around the world. In 2008, Air Supply was named No. 83 on Billboard's top 100 musical acts of all time, making them the only Australian band on the list.

Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $39.95 plus tax and fees. Tickets can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.636.7075, or by visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
