Air Supply is a British-Australian soft rock group, originally formed in 1975 by Graham Russell, Chrissie Hammond and Russell Hitchcock. Though Hammond left the band shortly thereafter, the remaining two would go on to record a number of radio staples that are easily distinguished by Hitchcock's soaring vocals. "Making Love Out of Nothing at All," a 1983 ballad penned by Jim Steinman, was one of their biggest hits and contributed to them selling more than 7 million copies of the album featuring the song. In 2013, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) inducted Air Supply into their Hall of Fame.
Riding the Skies with Sweet Dreams
Russell, Hitchcock and Hammond met in 1975 while performing in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar. Hammond would soon be replaced by Jeremy Paul on bass and vocals, but Paul's tenure with the band was equally short-lived as the group struggled to find an audience. Russell and Hitchcock persevered, finally achieving success with the release of their 1980 single, "Lost in Love." Though the supporting members of the band have revolved steadily throughout the years, Air Supply has remained prolific, with 17 studio albums and six concert tours under their belts. The group even served as inspiration for a 2018 jukebox musical, All Out of Love: The Musical, to which Russell contributed with an all-new original song.

What can I expect from an Air Supply concert?
Hitchcock and Russell have been performing together for nearly four and a half decades, which translates into an easy onstage camaraderie. Their live shows are usually economical in terms of length - running only about 90 minutes - but the quality of the performance is enough to offset the brevity. The duo may also take a moment to speak out in promotion of peace versus violence or to deliver a poem that they find particularly relevant to current events.

Air Supply has no shortage of recognizable hits to fall back on, and you can expect to hear many of them at their live performances.

More recent material, such as "I Adore You" from the band's 2019 album, The Lost in Love Experience, may also make an appearance.
