A Big Night In with Darren Hayes. The name says it all really.
To celebrate 10 years as a recording artist Darren Hayes has announced plans for a tour in 2006, performing songs from his Savage Garden and Solo career... with a twist!
为了庆祝10年的作为录音室艺人Darren Hayes宣布2006年的巡演的计划，从他的Savage Garden以及个人事业中的歌中...交错演唱！
But don't expect to just sit back and be entertained. You may end up on stage with him. The show, designed and directed by long term collaborator and U2 staple Willie Williams promises to blow the lid off the conventional pop show and reveal what only insiders have known for the longest time. Darren Hayes is not just an extraordinary live singer. He's charming, funny, confessional and honest. And he's inviting you into his living room to demonstrate.
但是不要期待只是坐在后面被娱乐。你可能最后和他在舞台上。这演出，由长时间的合作伙伴设计和导演，U2御用的Willie Williams答应揭开通常流行演出的内幕，揭晓了长久以来只有内部人士才知道的详情。Darren Hayes不仅仅是一个非同寻常的现场歌手。他聪明，有趣，自白和坦诚。他邀请你进入他的现场来证明。
After selling a phenomenal 23 million plus records in his career, and coming off the back of this year's release of 'Truly Madly Completely -The Best of Savage Garden' - Darren found himself at a crossroads. As an artist, the tug to milk your past has always been a strong one, but Hayes has never been one for living in the past. The release of a 'Best Of' this year has forced Hayes to embrace his past. He has chosen to use this experience to shape his future musical plans.
在他的事业中发售了现象的2千3百万张专辑，以及在今年发售的'Truly Madly Completely -The Best of Savage Garden'之后 - Darren发现自己处于了一个十字路口。作为一个艺人，用力挤自己过去的成就一直是稳固的做法，但是Hayes从不是一个生活在过去的人。今年发行的一张精选集使Hayes拥抱了他的过去。他选择用这段经历来形成他未来的音乐计划。
The unusually fame shy yet studio savvy Hayes has never done anything by convention. So in the middle of recording tracks for his yet to be released 3rd solo album, Hayes called time out. He sat down with friend and creative sparring partner Willie Williams to inject a healthy dose of irony and a much needed sense of retrospect into his back catalogue to gain perspective. Rather than run from the past. He's embracing it. A creative cleaning out of the closet, if you will, live and on tour, before finishing work on his next record.
And Hayes is adamant audiences can expect to hear all the songs they know.
"As a fan of bands who've split up, like Eurythmics, or the countless incarnations of Fleetwood Mac, I understand the desire to hear songs you know, solo or otherwise. And as an audience member, there's nothing worse than going along to see someone you adore and they play the obscure Japanese only b-sides!" Hayes explains."At this point in my career, I'm at the half way point. I want the next half to be better than the first. That's a huge challenge to set myself.
But it's important for me to look back and say thanks and goodbye to this period my music so that I can apply that to my future. I'm asking myself questions like "What worked? What didn't? What do I want to explore further? What song do I never want to hear again?"
With his experience from designing U2's most extravagant and intelligent shows, as well as the pop sensibilities of stage theatre (We Will Rock You) Willie Williams promises a show that reveals the 'hidden weapon' that not many people know Hayes possesses. Without giving too much away, Willie's concepts for the show go beyond Karaoke. The show is truly interactive. Fans should turn up prepared to be singled out!
有着来自于设计U2最豪华和最的演出，以及舞台剧院的流行敏感性(We Will Rock You)的经验，Willie Williams应诺的一场演出将揭晓没有太多人知道的Hayes拥有的'隐藏武器'。没有泄露太多，Willie给演出的概念超越了卡拉OK。这演出是真实的互动。歌迷们将要突然准备被单独挑选中。
"I connect with people. I'm good at that. These days I realize that's the only thing that really sets me apart. You can fake an awful lot in show business. But you can't fake connection, live in a room, under a microscope" Hayes says."I thought about having a dress code on the ticket" He jokes. "Because if I pick on you, I'm going to involve you in my show… and if I have to stand next to you under some very expensive lights.I want us to look good!"
