“Swung, sealed and delivered, this is a tight show on every level, with powerful delivery and timing being everything”
Australian Stage

Swing on This is an encore presentation paying tribute to the late Michael Falzon. The production brought together some of Australia’s leading stage and screen stars and the Sydney Symphony with their take on all-time swing classics. 

Michael Falzon (We Will Rock YouThe War of the Worlds Arena Tour), Luke Kennedy (The VoiceThe Ten Tenors), Rob Mills (WickedGhost the Musical) and Ben Mingay (WonderlandHouse of Bond) deliver a modern and audacious take on all-time swing classics from Sinatra to Bublé and featuring well-swung interpretations of hits from Oasis, John Farnham and The Proclaimers.
