The Lancaster (England) born singer is instantly recognisable and is cherished by a wide range of audiences. His unique voice is just as at home tearing through powerful rock-anthems, as it is eloquently and movingly delivering a ballad.
First coming to attention with leading British rock-group The Babys, John Waite had chart success globally with the debut LP "Isn't It Time" which spent two weeks at #1 on the Australian Albums chart in (1977) & the single "Every Time I Think Of You" peaking at number six in (1979).
After five albums, The Babys separated in 1981 with Waite subsequently launching his solo career with his 1982 debut album "Ignition". It wasn't until his following album "No Brakes" that Waite garnered international attention with the release of lead single "Missing You" (1984) which was a top-twenty hit globally & #1 in the US. So popular was the track that it was later re-recorded and released by the likes of Rod Stewart, Tina Turner and Brooks & Dunn.
In 1989, Waite joined several former Babys band-mates to form super-group Bad English which critics described as a characteristic Arena rock band. The first self-titled album of Bad English was certified platinum status within Australia and with "When I See You Smile", John Waite had his second #1 hit single in the U.S.A. The bands second album, "Backlash", produced two big hits: "Straight To Your Heart" and "Time Stood Still".
John Waite returned to solo work and since 1995 has produced a further five solo albums including his latest album "Rough And Tumble". Waite continues to actively tour, including in 2003 as a vocalist for Ringo Starr & his All-Star Band, alongside Colin Hay of Men At Work.
Legendary multi-talented and multi-faceted American hard-rock guitarist KERI KELLI will be joining Waite on stage for this Greatest Hits tour. Until recently, Keri spent in excess of 5 years crafting riffs, performing and co-writing tracks for Rock N Roll hall-of-fame legend & "King of shock" Alice Cooper, after forming part of the 2000-2002 line-up for American rock super group Slash's Snakepit, formed by then Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash in 1993.
