In 2006, Damien Leith won over our hearts, becoming the fourth winner of Australia Idol. Now, ten years on, he’s hitting the road sharing untold stories, singing rare songs and meeting the fans on his intimate and acoustic, The Winner’s Journey – 10th Anniversary Tour.
Last time we spoke, you were about to hit the road for the Roy – a tribute to Roy Orbison tour. How did it go?
It was brilliant! If anything, we probably did too short of a run, because we only did the 6 shows. It’s something that I’m going to have to revisit again at a later date because it was very popular. Because, with the show itself, we don’t impersonate or do anything to emulate him at all – I think people really liked that because you’re hearing the familiar songs but you’re hearing them done in a newer way.
