KAMAHL - A Special Concert

Price: $29.90 Adult, Concession and Group Bookings
With a thirty five year recording history, embracing number 1 international hits and more than eighty gold and platinum plaques, Kamahl has moved on to his own stratum in Australian entertainment. He stands as one of its great survivors:- a performer of integrity and tenacity who can claim a fiercly loyal following over a period that has seen many other singers rise and fall.
"People in this country and around the world have responded to me" he reasons.
"I'm different and I've always evoked all sorts of responses from all sorts of people. Part of the secret of longevity I think, is a curious element of public perception. If the public doesn't want you, no matter how talented you may be, there's nothing you can do about it, that's it. Many of my contemporaries from various stages of my career have dropped away but fortunately, I continue to paddle my own canoe at my own speed, like O'l Man River, I just keep rolling along. I have achieved not all but many of the things I set out to do. For that I am grateful."
Doors have never swung open readily for the rich-voiced Malaysian born Sri Lankan entertainer. In many cases his own determination has pushed and kept them open. Where opportunities have not presented themselves, Kamahl has created them, often acting alone against the advice of those around him. This indomitable spirit placed him triumphantly on the stages of the Sydney Opera House, The London Palladium, Talk Of The Town and New Yorks Carnegie Hall. It set in chain a series of circumstances which led him to spending six weeks at No 1 in Holland with "The Elephant Song" (A release which also topped charts in a number of European countries) being afforded a standing ovation on a Bob Hope television special seen by millions of viewers world wide, keeping the "Saturday Night Fever" album out of No 1 in New Zealand, and picking up Record of the Year and Best Male performer awards in Australia against competition from major rock stars.
