Air Supply Celebrates 40 Years of Global Hitmaking and Romantic Music With New 'Live in Hong Kong' CD, DVD and Blu-Ray and Another Jam-Packed Slate of International Touring Throughout 2015

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Feb 04, 2015 -- Shortly after Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock met the first day of rehearsal as chorus members in a Sydney, Australia production of "Jesus Christ Superstar" in May 1975, they realized that they had many things in common including having seen The Beatles perform in concert in 1964.

Forty years later, the duo -- which attained worldwide fame as pop/rock duo Air Supply ( www.airsupplymusic.com) with hit after hit in the early to mid-'80s -- celebrates their special anniversary while looking forward to another whirlwind slate of international appearances with one of pop music's most enduring powerhouse touring bands.

Their most recent release, the CD, DVD and Blu-Ray Live in Hong Kong on Evolution Media, captures one of their classic performances, vibrantly illuminating a true musical phenomenon. Throughout 2015, Air Supply will perform another 100+ dates throughout North America and across the world, hitting Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, The Philippines, Japan, Taiwan, Jamaica and Chile. Also to come is the release of a new dance single, "I Want You."

Signed by Clive Davis to Arista Records in 1980, Air Supply scored an immediate hit with "Lost In Love," an edited-down version of a previous Australian hit which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song initiated a run of seven consecutive U.S. Top Fives in just over two years, including their #1 "The One That You Love" (1981). Air Supply at that time had equaled The Beatles' run of consecutive top five singles.

Air Supply's albums Lost in Love, The One That You Love, Now & Forever, and The Greatest Hits have sold in excess of 40 million copies. "Lost in Love" was named Song of the Year in 1980, and, their singles have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.

With the chart success in recent years of "Dance With Me" and "Faith In Love" (from their 2010 album Mumbo Jumbo), which reached the Top 30 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart, and "Desert Sea Sky," whose remix by The Wideboys hit the Hot Dance Club Play chart, Air Supply has extended their hit-making streak to four decades.
