show Damien Leith | Roy + Strings Tour

Book now

Thursday 25 March 2021 – Wrest Point Showroom

2020 marks the Golden Anniversary of legendary Roy Orbison and Joe Melson’s classic hit, ‘Only the Lonely’ and to celebrate, Damien Leith will perform a strictly limited run of dates of his stage show, ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison with Strings’.

Leith has a very close affiliation and connection with the Big O, having recorded and worked with the late Barbara Orbison and continues to write with legends that worked with Roy Orbison, regularly in Nashville.

“Very few voices excite me, but I fell in love with Damien’s voice when I heard it.  His unique voice has inspired me to write again, much in the same way Roy Orbison’s voice inspired me to write.  I believe Damien is going to be a big star.  All the best to you, Damien. Looking forward to good things with you.” Joe Melson (co-writer of ‘Crying’, ‘Only the Lonely’, ‘Blue Bayou’, ‘Running Scared’)

Performing in an intimate setting, accompanied by a sublime String Quartet, audiences will hear all their favourites beautifully arranged by celebrated composer Jessica Graham. Songs like ‘Pretty Woman’, ‘Only the Lonely’ and ‘You Got It’ will have you tapping your feet while haunting ballads like ‘In Dreams’, ‘Leah’, ‘Running Scared’ and of course ‘Crying’ will have you yelling out for more.

“Damien, I applaud you for doing a ‘Roy’ Album! Thank You! We wish you every bit of luck and success! You got it!”Barbara Orbison

Damien Leith’s album ‘Roy – A Tribute to Roy Orbison’ stayed in the Aria top 20 charts for 22 weeks, was nominated for an Aria award and has sold multi-platinum. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of Australia’s finest voices, pay tribute to one of the world’s most celebrated voices, Roy Orbison. Mercy!
