ANTHONY Callea’s seventh album, Aria Number 1 Hits In Symphony has debuted at number one on the ARIA album charts.
This is Anthony’s third album to enter the charts at number one and sees him join an elite club of only four other Australian male solo artists.
Industry icons Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, John Butler Trio and Keith Urban share similar chart success, cementing the future pathway for Anthony’s 13-year long career to date.
Coinciding with the release, Anthony launched his album to a sold out audience last month with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra at Hamer Hall.
A standing ovation acknowledged his performance of the new album as he delivered his version of anthems derived from the official ARIA music charts.
This is the first number one ARIA album to feature the MSO since 1987 with Sir Elton John.
“I love that this album with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has connected with so many people and debuted at the number one spot on our charts. ARIA Number 1 Hits In Symphony is such an epic sounding album, an album that is filled with passion, beautifully produced, recorded, orchestrated, played and it was a privilege to sing and interpret these iconic lyrics and melodies that are part of our musical landscape,” Anthony said.
Anthony has confirmed a national tour for the album and this promises to be his biggest and most exciting concert experience to date.
