Burt Returning to Australia in 2010

Post by Martyn »

Great News!!

Looks like Burt is coming back to Australia next year to do a series of concerts in late February/early March.
I'm aware of concerts scheduled for Perth, Melbourne and Sydney with their respective symphony orchestras. Other cities may also be on the schedule.

Mark will probably get the dates soon but, for Down Under fans, I suggest checking the symphony orchestra website in your capital city.

**SYDNEY SYMPHONY TO ANNOUNCE REPLACEMENT FOR BURT BACHARACH**

The Sydney Symphony wishes to advise that the upcoming Burt Bacharach performances at the Sydney Opera House on 11, 12, 13 November 2010 have been cancelled for medical reasons.

After undergoing back surgery in Los Angeles earlier this year, Bacharach’s recuperation is taking longer than expected making him unable to carry out his 2010 Australian tour.

The Sydney Symphony is set to announce a replacement for Mr Bacharach in the next few weeks.

Ticket-holders are advised to hold on to their tickets until such an announcement is made and will be advised in writing once the replacement is confirmed.
