Dave Stewart called upon some Australian friends to help him out with a special one off, sold out show DAVE STEWART AND FRIENDS.
Joining guests vocalists Colbie Caillat and Amy Keys, was Delta Goodrem, Orianthi and Vanessa Amorosi on stage at a packed Troubadour Theatre in LA last night.
Dave was showcasing his latest album THE RINGMASTER GENERAL – the sequel to the highly acclaimed BLACKBIRD DIARIES. The packed theatre were treated with a selection of tracks from both albums along with some of his greatest hits including, Would I Lie To You, Missionary Man and Sweet Dreams.
“It was such great fun to have all these amazing musicians and singers join me onstage at the Troubadour. Very surprising and coincidental that three of them were from Australia; Orianthi on guitar (I just produced her new album Heaven In This Hell), and we were also joined by Vanessa Amorosi who belted out "Would I Lie To You" like there was no tomorrow, and Delta Goodrem who sang along with me on acoustic guitar doing a really emotional rendition of "You Have Placed A Chill." I was also joined by Colbie Caillat to sing a duet, "Bulletproof Vest" from my album, The Blackbird Diaries. A very dapper looking John Mayer lept up for the encore to play an amazing blues guitar on "The Gypsy Girl and Me."
The Ringmaster General is available at all JB HiFi stores.
