Air Supply – the duo that brought you “Lost in Love”, “All Out of Love”, and “The One That You Love”, just to name a few – will make a stop in Huber Heights, OH at Rose Music Center for a night of hit after hit on Saturday, August 12th.
With their heavily orchestrated, sweet ballads, the Australian soft rock group Air Supply became a staple of early-'80s radio, scoring a string of seven straight Top Five singles. Air Supply, for most intents and purposes, was the duo of vocalists Russell Hitchcock and Graham Russell. Hitchcock and Russell met while performing in a Sydney, Australia production of Jesus Christ Superstar in 1976. The two singers formed a partnership and with the addition of four supporting musicians -- keyboardist Frank Esler-Smith, guitarist David Moyse, bassist David Green, and drummer Ralph Cooper – Air Supply was born.
The group’s first international exposure came in the late '70s, when Rod Stewart had them as his opening act on a North American tour. Air Supply signed a record contract with Arista in 1980, releasing their first album by the end of the year. Lost in Love, their debut, was a major success in the U.S., selling over two million copies and spawning the hit singles "Lost in Love," "All Out of Love," and "Every Woman in the World." The following year they released their second album, The One That You Love. The title track became a number one hit and it also featured two other Top Ten hits, "Here I Am (Just When I Thought I Was Over You)" and "Sweet Dreams." With their third album, 1982's Now and Forever, the group earned another Top Ten hit, "Even the Nights Are Better,”. Air Supply released a Greatest Hits collection in 1983, featuring a new single, "Making Love Out of Nothing at All." The single spent two weeks at number two while the album peaked at number seven and eventually sold over four million copies.
In 1989, they recorded The Earth Is album, selling over a million copies outside of the U.S. This album was followed by The Vanishing Race and, with the singles "Goodbye" and "It's Never Too Late", again saw multi-platinum success. The following albums, News from Nowhere, Yours Truly, and Across the Concrete Sky all gave their second greatest hits album multi-platinum status as they traveled the world each and every year.
The group disbanded in 1988, but Russell and Hitchcock re-formed Air Supply in 1991 and continue to play 100+ shows a year worldwide.
