This includes return flights to Sydney, one night's accommodation, a tour of Hayes Theatre, VIP lunch PLUS a meet & greet with David and John, and, of course, front row seats to the show! Background: Campbell made his name in New York in the mid Nineties, and it was then that he discovered the work of Broadway composer John Bucchino.

Campbell was eager to sing Bucchino's songs and pursued him tirelessly to do so. John acquiesced and they began a friendship that has lasted decades. Together they have performed across the globe and recorded soundtracks for Hollywood movies. In this deeply personal and intimate show, Campbell and Bucchino return to the stage to talk about their lives, careers and the songs that have bound them together. David Campbell has four platinum albums, an ARIA award and three Helpmann Awards. He has taken a break from recording over the last couple of years, whilst he has been hosting Nine Network’s Mornings with Sonia Kruger, but is heading back to the studio to create an album with John Bucchino – back to his roots of Broadway. John Bucchino is one of New York’s most beloved composers. His work has been recorded by artists such as Art Garfunkel, Liza Minelli and Kristin Chenoweth and performed at venues across the world – from the Sydney Opera House to the White House. His work with Harvey Fierstein ‘A Catered Affair’ opened on Broadway in 2008. Most recently, he was commissioned by Danish producer Soren Moller, to compose music and lyrics for ‘Esaura’.
