Entertainer Todd McKenney returns to Bendigo on Friday as part of an extended regional tour.

McKenney and his show – Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen: The Piano Sessions – visited Bendigo last year where the showman performed a song with the cast of Bendigo Theatre Company’s Boy From Oz.

The Piano Sessions pays homage to Peter Allen and sees McKenney perform in an intimate, relaxed setting with Michael Rohanek on grand piano, Ralph Marshall on bass, and vocalist Lisa Callingham.

As well as singing all of Allen’s biggest hits including Not The Boy Next Door, (I Go to) Rio, I Honestly Love You, Tenterfield Saddler and I Still Call Australia Home, McKenney will tell stories about meeting Allen and playing him on stage.

McKenney also encourages the audience to ask questions and bring their judge’s scorecards to score him.

Todd McKenney Sings Peter Allen: The Piano Sessions is at The Capital on Friday, November 17.
