Guy Sebastian joins the Army!

Not the military type you think? Not so - this very versatile entertainer can sing and perform in any genre or style that he is invited to perform in. Guy Sebastian is currently on a national tour with the Australian Army Band in support of our servicemen and women.

After taking to the stage with Olivia Newton-John recently, to perform a duet with Olivia at her fundraiser for a Wellness Centre and Cancer research, the original Australian Idol winner is now lending his talents to a one-off tour to raise cash for Legacy - Caring for the Families of Deceased Veterans.

Legacy is proud to present the Australian Army Band in Concert featuring Australia’s premier performer of blues, roots and soul Guy Sebastian in a spectacular evening of entertainment. Capturing all the colour, pomp and ceremony, backed by an amazing ensemble of over 60 Army musicians and precision ceremonial teams which combine to promise an evening you won’t forget whilst supporting a worthy cause.

Legacy is a unique Australian charity supporting the families of deceased veterans including our recent and current operations around the globe.

Guy performed on Sunrise to promote the Army Band Tour. David Koch and Natalie Barr the Sunrise hosts doubled up as on stage dancers!

Here is the Sunrise Memphis Medley performance - amazing energy and talent!

Here is the Sunrise Climb Every Mountain performance - stunning vocals!

This blog is just brilliant!
You've done such an amazing job...

I loved getting the google alert & then being greeted by the fantastic sound of Guy & The Army doing Memphis ...
my turn to see it live next Sunday. Can't wait :)

Guy is such an incredible artist.

Every time you see him perform live,it's as fresh & exciting as the first time, yet each time he seems to just up the ante, leaves you spellbound & impatient for the next gig.

Guy & The Army work so well together
