In this heartfelt tribute, entitled Wish You Were Here, Australia's "vocal wonder from down under" (Broadway World) will take the audience on a feel-good journey through some of the world's greatest hits of all time, including music by David Bowie, Prince, Amy Winehouse, John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Freddie Mercury, Whitney Houston and more. On tour across America, It's a fitting 20th Anniversary for an ensemble which has played before 90 million people worldwide.

Wielding an unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal power, The TEN Tenors have cemented their place as one of the worlds most loved classically- based contemporary music groups.

"We were rehearsing Bowie's "Heroes" in Melbourne for the very first time when news came to us of his death," said The TEN Tenors producer D-J Wendt. "It had a marked impact on the band and performing that song has taken on a whole new meaning. While on tour just a few months later, we learned of the loss of Prince, another monumental talent, and as 2016 continued we knew our next album should pay tribute to those artists who departed before their time. We wanted to rise above the sadness to create a musical celebration to their respective lives and legacies." Thus, the idea behind Wish You Were Here came forth.

"Their sound, though, is what's truly sexy. The cluster of high voices generates pure electricity and undeniable drama" (Los Angeles Times).

Fun, impressive and with enough energy to power a mid-size city, The TEN Tenors bring to the USA their explosive 20th Anniversary show, straight off a stellar national tour across Australia in 2017. The Wish You Were Here tour is a journey through classic rock anthems of Queen and Bowie through Australia's own Jon English and Michael Hutchence, and even unique "tenorial" take material by Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse. The tour's repertoire is a true representation of the world's most popular songbook. Concertgoers will experience songs ranging from Leonard Cohen's elegiac "Hallelujah" to Michael Jackson's soulful "The Way You Make Me Feel," celebrating great artistry that transcends generations and genres.

The TEN Tenors has previously released thirteen albums including the platinum smash Tenology, and the gold-certified Here's To The Heroes. They have been a strong presence on music charts in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and elsewhere. In the US, they have been guests on Oprah, The Today Show and have shared bills with Andrea Bocelli, Christina Aguilera, and Keith Urban, becoming one of Australia's best-loved touring attractions. In 2016, their album Our Christmas Wish broke the Top 10 on the Billboard Classical and Classical Crossover charts, and then broke the Top 10 the following year on the Billboard Classical Catalog chart.

The recording of Wish You Were Here will be released in the US by Sony Masterworks on March 2, 2018.
