To celebrate the release of Damien Leith’s acclaimed fifth studio album ‘ROY – A tribute to Roy Orbison’, Damien sets off on a National theatre tour. The album which was recorded in Nashville, Los Angeles and Australia and was executively produced by Roy’s wife Barbara Orbison features 14 classic Roy tracks including favourites like Crying, Pretty Woman and Only The Lonely.
Accompanied by a rocking five-piece band, Damien will take the stage to honour the talents of Roy Orbison. 'A songwriter extraordinaire' who changed the structure of songwriting forever.
“Roy said that at times he didn't like the 'Singer' Roy Orbison, as it often overshadowed the 'Song Writer' Roy Orbison, and he hoped that artists would get past his voice and get to the song, so that they could see a way to make his compositions their very own.” Barbara Orbison.
In Damien’s new album, ‘ROY – A Tribute To Roy Orbison’, he has done just that.
With soaring renditions of all Roy’s Orbison’s songs, this show is not to be missed. Not only will he sing the songs with the passion and emotion that audiences have come to expect from Damien, but he’ll also take you on a journey, sharing stories of his experiences in the creation of his wonderful new album and the honour to be celebrating Roy Orbison during the 75th anniversary year of one of rock n roll’s greatest contributors.
This show is not a Roy Orbison Concert. It is a salute to an amazing talent from one of his greatest admirers! Come join the celebrations! Mercy!

Hi, lovely ladies,
Nobody went to Leumeah last night??? Wrong! We have been there and had a great time!!!
What can we say... Damien was brilliant again, his performance was, as always, fantastic, amazing, terrific!!!
Our highlights: The Songs "Beautiful", "Night Of My Life", "Crying", "Hallelujah", "Only The Lonely", "In Dreams"...
By the way, Damien is still impressed by dmac's gift "the nose warmer". He told about this on stage.
The audience was enthusiastic - after a little warm up period. We think the concert was sold out.
Before we catched the last train for our 90 minutes return trip at midnight we had a nice chat and photo shooting with Damien! Of course, this was absolutely the high spot of this great evening!!! THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DAMIEN!
We wish you, Braffy, dmac and the other ladies, a fantastic show tonight in Castle Hill...

That's wonderful that you were able to go to this.
The concert sounds like another beauty.
I love hearing that Night of My Life is sometimes making an appearance. It really is a top song the way Damien sings it, although I know he likes to play around a little bit with how he does it. (Do we remember the Country version of it at the State Theatre, Oct 09??)
There were some very positive coments on Facebook last night too.
Thanks 2DamienFans for your report.
LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW ALBUM 'SONGS FROM IRELAND' RELEASED 13th MARCH, 2015
Thanks for dropping in 2Damienfans. I'm glad somebody went to see the show who was able to report back to us. Yes, he is amazing, wonderful, gorgeous and all the other adjectives....but most of all, that voice!!!
Awesome to hear that you made it to this show 2Damienfans, and great to hear also that the show was a near sell out also!! This is so great for Damien and the band, singing to packed houses all over the country
gosh, one day he might be playing at a STADIUM!!! ;D
Good to hear that you had a photo and a chat with the D man too,

I forgot to also say how much I loved Stairway to Heaven at Castle Hill, isn't it amazing with the two flutes also now at the beginning, Eric blew the place away with his guitar and Damien - what can I say - breathtaking vocal!!
