His showmanship is second to none, his voice stunning and his persona endearing, making it a treat to watch him perform.
Campbell’s QPAC appearance on Saturday the 7th of August in ‘The Broadway Show’ began with an old favourite and ended with a well deserved standing ovation.

Having spent the last three weeks at number two, Lady Gaga’s album “The Fame Monster” takes over the top position on this week’s ARIA Album Chart. The album’s entire eighteen-week chart life has been spent in the top 10. On the ARIA Singles and Digital Track Charts, Train’s “Hey, Soul Sister” holds firm for a fourth consecutive week, well on the way to becoming one of this year’s most successful chart toppers. It is the only single in the top 17 of this week’s singles chart that has a physical component.
“I Like That” from Richard Vission & Static Revenger featuring Luciana makes a bold move up the ARIA Singles Chart this week, jumping from 7 to 3 and edging ever closer to top spot. With a visit to our shores scheduled for later this month, Justin Bieber’s “Baby” featuring Ludacris moves up from 11 to 6, and “Nothin’ On You” from B.o.B. (featuring Bruno Mars) hits the top 10, moving up from 14 to 8. Also achieving their first top 10 single result is UK outfit Florence + The Machine, blasting up eight places to #9 this week with their hit single “You’ve Got The Love”.

Miley Cyrus also continues her upward trajectory, racing forward nine places to a top 20 result, landing at #19 this week with “When I Look At You”. Top 40 debuts this week are lead by Usher featuring Will.I.Am at #15 with “OMG”, followed by Lady Gaga at #28 with “Alejandro” and The Temper Trap at 32 with “Love Lost”
