Todd McKenney’s electrifying in-studio tribute to man who put him ‘on the map’
Legend of Australian stage and screen Todd McKenney is going on tour with a tribute to the biggest names of the 60s and 70s.
Todd will perform hits from Peter Allen, Bette Midler, Tom Jones, Barry Manilow and more.
He told Jim Wilson half of the show is dedicated to Allen, whom Todd portrayed in The Boy From Oz and whose one-man show was the first he ever attended as a child.
“I will never not do his big hits, he put me on the map.
“I’m not going to turn my back, ever, on Peter Allen.
“I’m very entrenched in his world.”
