Best known for hits such as “Lost in Love,” “All Out of Love” and “The One That You Love,” Air Supply has sold millions of records and continues to perform more than 150 shows worldwide each year.

The group was formed by singer/songwriter Graham Russell and vocalist Russell Hitchcock when the pair met in Australia in the 1970s. Air Supply received its big break when famed record producer Clive Davis signed the group to Arista Records, and its first release with the company, “Lost in Love” ignited the U.S. music scene in 1980.

The “Lost in Love” single became Air Supply’s first Top 5 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, paving the way for a stream of ballads that would capture America’s heart. The next single “All Out of Love” peaked at No. 2, and “Every Woman in the World” followed at No. 5.

“The One That You Love,” the title track from Air Supply’s follow-up album in 1981, became the group’s first No. 1 hit in the U.S. pop chart. “Here I Am,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Even the Nights Are Better” completed Air Supply’s rare feat of posting seven consecutive of Top 5 hits.

In 1983, the group released Making Love … The Very Best of Air Supply, which featured “Making Love Out of Nothing at All.” The track vaulted to No. 2 on the U.S. pop and contemporary charts. It would be the eighth Top 10 hit for the definitive soft rock group of the 1980s.

Don’t miss an opportunity to see these hits, and more, performed live in the 1,400-seat Samala Showroom.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 18-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Chumash. Click here or call StarTicketsPlus at 800.585.3737.
