Gregg Arthur's successful career has seen him perform on stages all over the globe. Whilst overseas Gregg earned praise from industry legends including Tony Bennett who said, "I love the way you sing. You have a fan in the way you phrase… it's perfect".

"I'm so pleased to be back in Australia and what a better way to celebrate than to kickstart my first tour with a special Vivid show. I'm thrilled to be performing with eight of Sydney's most talented musicians. We have chosen a wonderful selection of music and look forward to giving Sydney the opportunity to see the show before we start our tour," says Gregg Arthur.
The two hour show features orchestrations written for Gregg by the late Maestro Tommy Tycho AM MBE, as well as arrangements by Andrew Scott, Tatyana Lukich and Craig Scott, featuring popular adult contemporary hits, classic jazz standards, and songs written by Gregg that have become much loved fan favourites.
