Foxtel to deliver exclusive Michael Buble Australian Concert Special in 4K
Foxtel invites viewers to an exclusive feel good evening with multi-Grammy Award winning artist Michael Bublé who is set to release his new album ❤ (pronounced love).
The event will be Foxtel’s first locally produced concert performance special shot in 4K and will be simulcast on both Foxtel Smooth (channel 133/806) and in 4K on Foxtel’s dedicated 4K channel (444).
Filmed exclusively for Foxtel Smooth at Sydney’s Seymour Centre during his recent Australian visit, Bublé lights up the stage in front of an intimate audience with music from his new album ❤ including ‘When I Fall in Love’ and ‘Love You Anymore’ as well as some of his greatest hits, ‘Feeling Good’ and ‘Save The Last Dance For Me’.
Michael Bublé is set to release ❤ as his first studio album in two years following a break from public life to spend time with his family after his son’s cancer diagnosis. The Canadian singer-songwriter returned to the studio with a new perspective on life and a renewed commitment to honouring the music he has always loved.
Foxtel Smooth sits down with Michael Bublé before his performance where he emotionally reflects over the last two years and recounts his time away after such a life changing experience. Bublé also talks about the new album ❤, his enthusiasm for his return to Australia, his deep connection with his audience and the gratitude and admiration he has for them.
“How wonderful it feels to come somewhere and to never be afraid to just let yourself go and be comfortable in your skin and to feel like you are enough and that’s how I have always felt. I never have to be careful or censor myself because people have this really wonderful sense of humour and deep kind of kindness and always feel like I belonged,” Bublé said.
Michael Bublé has sold over 60 million records worldwide (with nearly 3.3 million of those in Australia alone), has performed hundreds of sold-out shows around the globe, and won four Grammys and multiple Juno Awards during the course of his extraordinary career. Australia welcomed him back with open arms during his recent visit.
