CLEARWATER - Multi-platinum recording artist Air Supply will perform in concert in the intimate Capitol Theatre on Saturday, April 19 at 7:30 p.m.

Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met in 1975 in Sydney, Australia, where they became instant friends with their common love for The Beatles, and of course, singing. They would play pizza parlors, coffee bars and night clubs with just one guitar and two voices. They quickly gained a reputation for great harmonies and for the original songs that Graham constantly wrote.

They made a demo of two songs, Love and Other Bruises and If You Knew Me and took it to every record company in Sydney.  Everyone turned it down but one, CBS Records, who admired their unique style. Their first single shot to #1 on the national charts and that same year they opened for Rod Stewart  across Australia and then throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Returning home, they made an album, Life Support, which included Lost in Love, that went to the Top 10 in Australia and somehow found its way to music industry executive Clive Davis in New York. Clive immediately signed Air Supply to Arista Records and in 1980, Lost in Love became the fastest selling single in the world, leaping to the top of all of the charts. Their second single, All Out of Love, went to the top of the charts even quicker.
