Michael Bolton turns up the volts on his Symphony Orchestras tour in April, with the announcement that Orianthi, the blistering, international guitarist originally from Adelaide, will join his band as Special Guest on all Australian dates.
The Grammy legend's latest album of duets, Gems, features the young axe wielding Goddess on the track, Steel Bars, (a mega-hit co-written with Bob Dylan) and he is delighted that Orianthi has accepted his invitation.
Michael says "One of the cool things about working with Orianthi, is you realise that this is the next generation of artistry."
Orianthi was thrust into the global spotlight as Michael Jackson's guitarist in the 2009 documentary This Is It, has also shared the stage with Carlos Santana and Steve Vai and performed with Carrie Underwood at the Grammy Awards.
Michael Bolton, the Soul Provider of signature power ballads, classic hits and beautiful arias is touring throughout April, performing with our orchestras in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney and Melbourne, then Hobart with his band. Tour details below.
