Dennis Locorriere, Dr Hook and Beyond
Dennis Locorriere was a founding member, lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter for the internationally popular, multi-million selling music group, Dr Hook.
In the 15 years the band was together, Locorriere and Dr Hook toured all around the world, playing to record breaking crowds and receiving gold and platinum singles and albums everywhere they went. Their songs like Sylvia’s Mother, Walk right in, The Wild Colonial Boy, Sexy Eyes, When you’re in love with a beautiful woman, Sharing the night together, Baby makes her blue jeans talk and Cover of the Rolling Stone were all top 10 around the world, with the first three reaching No. 1 in Australia.
The band did its farewell tour with Dennis on vocals in the late 80’s but it was just the beginning of what he has accomplished in his long and colourful career since. Locorriere penned songs have been recorded and performed by artists such as Helen Reddy, Lou Rawls, BJ Thomas, Olivia Newton-John, Southside Johnny, Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan. As a solo artist, Locorriere has played at countless prestigious venues (Festival Hall Melbourne, Royal Concert Hall Glasgow, Liverpool Philharmonic) and festivals including the UK’s Glastonbury and has released 3 critically acclaimed albums, as well as a top charting concert DVD and a well received book of poetry and cartoons.
Locorriere continues to tour, bringing his unmistakable voice, sparkling musicianship, engaging personality and natural sense of humour to the concert stage, garnering rave reviews from press and audience members alike. In an evening of unparalleled intimacy, his latest oneman show, takes his audience, in story and song, through his entire career, performing popular selections from his ‘Hook days’ as well as new favourites from his solo albums. The audience leaves the concert hall feeling as if they’ve known the man their whole lives, or at the very least, wishing they had.
This will be Dennis’ first tour to Australia since 2005, and he looks forward to performing in front of fans old and new as he takes his audience on a trip through his years with DR HOOK and beyond.
