The TEN Tenors are undoubtedly one of Australia’s most successful touring entertainment groups of all time, with more than 90 million people worldwide witnessing their unmistakable charm, camaraderie and vocal power. Following 16 years of sell-out performances across the globe, including more than 2000 of their own headline concerts, The TEN Tenors have cemented their place as one of the worlds most loved classically based contemporary music groups.
Celebrated for their wonderfully vast repertoire, breathtaking arrangements and powerful live performances, The TEN Tenors respectfully tip their hats not only to the great classical tenors and composers, but also contemporary music’s most popular artists. From Buckley to Bocelli, an evening with The TEN Tenors is guaranteed to surprise and delight in equal measure.
Amidst their own explosive live concert experiences and remarkable achievements including six platinum and gold records and over 3.5 million concert tickets sold, the TEN have also performed alongside countless music legends including Andrea Bocelli, André Rieu, John Travolta, Nicole Kidman, Geoffrey Rush, Keith Urban, Rod Stewart, Alanis Morissette, Sarah Brightman, Willie Nelson, Katherine Jenkins and Christina Aguilera.
They’re no strangers to television either, with iconic appearances on some of the world’s biggest broadcast events including performing exclusively for chat show queen Oprah Winfrey on Oprah’s Ultimate Australian Adventure, appearing on the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon for an audience of 32 million viewers, in Poland at 2012 UEFA Cup in Warsaw, plus Germany’s Wetten, dass?, Extreme Home Makeover, the US Today Show and many more…
Long-serving member of The TEN, Scott Muller says “Often, men will turn up to a show, having been dragged by their wives, arms folded, thinking they’re going to watch us croon to the ladies and serve up yet another watery classical- crossover show. Not too far into the show they realize we are a group of down-to-earth Aussie blokes, that have power and guts in our performance and they leave not only pleasantly surprised, but fans themselves.”
The group’s producer, D-J Wendt adds, “We like to think audiences come to our shows to hear arias and classical pieces that will give them goose bumps like they have never felt before, and they will. However with our shows, we also promise to make you feel like you have just rocked out or been to the best party you have been to in a very long time.”
