Known for his smooth, silky vocals and rousing musical performances, ARIA-award-winning singer David Campbell (Dream Lover) is one of Australia’s most popular and versatile entertainers – and he’s bringing his Big Band show to town a big night of entertainment.
Campbell’s chart-topping, multi-platinum albums The Swing Sessions (2006), The Swing Sessions 2 (2007), and Good Lovin’ (2008) established him as a musical favourite, leading to an enormously successful run of sell-out national concert tours.
See him perform live at Sydney’s Cathedral Square on Saturday, March 20th from 8:00 pm. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.sunsetpiazza.com.au/events/davidcampbell
