Few, if any have done as much to celebrate the life and music of Peter Allen as Todd McKenney, who delighted audiences as the original star of the musical The Boy From Oz and who has been shaking Allen’s maracas in various guises ever since.
20 years on, Todd pays homage to Peter Allen in his live event, Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen: The Piano Sessions, inviting fans to get up close and personal in an intimate, relaxed setting: just Todd himself, Michael Rohanek on grand piano, Ralph Marshall on bass, additional vocals from the amazing Lisa Callingham, and Allen’s fantastic songs. The Piano Sessions just completed two sold out nights at The Opera House, Sydney, with audiences raving about McKenney’s performance and showmanship.
As well as singing all of Allen’s biggest hits including Not The Boy Next Door, (I Go to) Rio, I Honestly Love You, Tenterfield Saddler and I Still Call Australia Home, Todd will tell stories about meeting Allen and playing him on stage.
