THE Maryborough music scene is in for a treat with The TEN Tenors set to perform in the Heritage City in July.
The group will entertain at the Brolga Theatre on July 4.
The show forms part of The TEN Tenors’ nationwide 25th anniversary tour.
After waiting patiently for more than a year to wow crowds due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Australia’s premier vocal group will pack 25 years of fun into each show along the 22-city tour.

- Scored 7 gold/platinum albums/DVD
- Headlined over 2500 performance globally

The TEN Tenors are itching to connect with old and new fans with a show that revisits the full history of the group’s catalogue of 15 albums and over 4,000 live performances.
The song list will feature all the favourites including Bohemian Rhapsody, Hallelujah, Perfect, In my Life, Here’s to the Heroes, Pearl Fishers Duet, Funiculì, Funiculà, Largo AL Factotum and, of course, Nessun Dorma. Plus – their three most requested medleys.
This concert tour will be a celebration of one of Australia’s longest running and most enduring musical groups, who have come a long way since their first performance (where they had a repertoire of only four songs) – and they have lots of stories to tell from over the years.
“The camaraderie and feeling of being a Tenor can be likened to the combination of the best parts of a strong family bond and a secret society rolled in to one,” said producer and long-time manager of The TEN Tenors, D-J Wendt.
“I think that’s why the group has gone from strength to strength over the past 25 years. It’s hard work, sometimes even gruelling. But it’s also so much fun, it gives you incredible experiences and memories and it gets into your blood.”
- Warsaw 2012 with a live audience of 85,000 people (for one of our young tenors at the time it was his first ever concert performance with the group);
