Thirty Sold Out Shows And Counting! THE TEN TENORS Return To The McCallum For Six Spectacular Shows

The most popular group in the history of the McCallum Theatre (30 sold-out shows and counting!) returns for six spectacular shows, Tuesday, November 20, through Sunday, November 25. Whether this is your first time or thirty-first, The TEN Tenors will dazzle you with their vocal prowess and delight you with their choreography and Australian humor. They will be performing new songs and classics, and some Holiday music, too. Don't miss the "Vocal Thunder from Down Under!"

The TEN Tenors, one of Australia's most famous musical exports, are returning to the United States this fall, for a 38-date tour of the Midwest, South, West Coast and Southwest. On the first leg of the tour, the vocal group whose voices generate "pure electricity and undeniable drama" according to the Los Angeles Times, will be performing repertoire from their latest album Wish You Were Here. The TEN Tenors will then switch gears, performing material from their hit album Our Christmas Wish for the second leg of the tour, with a six-night stand at Palm Desert, CA's McCallum Theatre during the transition.

The TEN Tenors will donate their net proceeds for every copy of Our Christmas Wish sold in the U.S. to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital®, which is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their record sales have already raised over $1 million for the organization.

Breaking the Top 5 in Billboard's Classical Albums chart earlier this year, Wish You Were Hereconsists of material associated with iconic performers who have passed on, including Prince, David Bowie, Michael Hutchence of INXS, John Lennon, Amy Winehouse, Queen's Freddy Mercury, Roy Orbison and others.

Selections from Our Christmas Wish include traditional standards such as "Joy to the World" and "O Holy Night," as well as John Lennon and Yoko Ono's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)," "Feliz Navidad" by José Feliciano, "White Christmas" by Irving Berlin, and Mariah Carey's relatively recent contribution to the canon of holiday standards "All I Want For Christmas Is You."

The TEN Tenors' tour begins in Wausau, WI at the Grand Theater with a two-day stint on October 29-30. They then head to Iowa, Michigan, Illinois, Nebraska, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas, followed by California. Once in the Golden State, they will partake in a six-date residency at Palm Desert's McCallum Theatre. Since their debut at the McCallum in 2011, they hold the record for most consecutive sold out nights, totaling 30 thus far. After switching into holiday mode, TTT heads to points north and south within the state, followed by Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Missouri and Louisiana, concluding with more Texas dates just before Christmas.

Now enjoying their 21st year together, The TEN Tenors playfully blend rock, pop and opera, and are "truly incandescent when performing at the full strength of 10" according to Variety. The New York Times says their "unique mix of the traditional and unconventional offers a fresh and highly-original take on the staid traditions of opera."

The TEN Tenors have appeared on "The Today Show," "Oprah's Australian Adventure," and "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition," among others. More than 90 million people worldwide have attended their live performances, and they have shared the stage with Lionel Richie, Rod Stewart, Andrea Boccelli, Willie Nelson, Alanis Morissette and Christina Aguilera.
