Fans of all ages, young, old, male, female, gay and straight united in Darren’s music as the night became one huge party. We got hits like To The Moon and Back, Affirmation, Truly Madly Deeply and The Animal Song – hits from Savage Garden that are now part of Australian music history.
We then witnessed the new side to Darren Hayes, new tracks from his massive smash album Secret Codes and Battleships – Talk Talk Talk, Black Out The Sun and the big Aussie hit Bloodstained Heart. The highlight of the night had arrived, Darren moved to tears as he delivered the last note of the song, the crowd in awe of his vocal power… the man we know as ‘Darren Hayes’ was back!
The night continued to climax as we watched the many faces of Darren Hayes come to life. Sporting face paint and makeup, Darren waved his magical wand and gave the crowd a spectacular night to remember. We got mash-ups, the world famous Michael Jackson hit Billie Jean was mixed into the Savage Garden hit Break Me Shake Me, then Bros, the 80’s hit-makers made a cameo with When Will I Be Famous, mashed up into the Hayes hit Popular. It was quite a performance, from start to finish the crowd were part of the show, Darren engaging at every opportunity. Darren closed the night with The Siren’s Call, a spine tingling tune that fans were quick to embrace – what a special night it was, what an amazing artist.
