Air supplies oldies about love, love and yet more love

AUSTRALIAN soft rock duo Air Supply next week will perform its greatest hits from the 1980s, including the international favorite "All Out of Love."

Air Supply begins its China tour next Friday at the Shanghai International Gymnastics Center with a concert that's mostly about love.

Guitarist Graham Russel and singer-songwriter Russel Hitchcock were popular worldwide and produced eight top 10 hits in the United States in the early 1980s. They include "Making Love Out of Nothing," "Love Never Ends, "Lost in Love," "Goodbye," "Power of Love" and others.

The duo will perform new songs from their forthcoming album "Mumbo Jumbo."

The China tour is titled "Love Never Ends" and will feature more than 80 concerts in 72 cities in 13 countries.

In China the duo will also perform in Beijing, Hangzhou in Zhejiang Province and Guangzhou in Guangdong Province.

The audience will be invited to participate, and shows will involve some interaction, according to Russel. "We are expecting your voice," he says.

The new album "Mumbo Jumbo" features new elements in rhythm and melody.

"But we keep pursuing good music as well as emotional elements that are always the core of our music," Russel says.

Singles seeking "romantic encounters" can book special tickets and small presents such as roses and chocolates will be placed on the seats. They might find themselves seated next to a potential love interest.

Tickets for couples and VIPs are available. VIPs can attend the welcome party.
