Air Supply Takes Your Breath Away
From an Australian production of Jesus Christ Superstar, Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met and formed the band that would go on to be inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association's Hall of Fame in 2013. See them June 7 at Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula.

Piano Like it's Meant to be Played
