Harrison Craig the winner of the Voice season 2 hit the Festival Theatre with his current tour and third album “Kings of Vegas”. Harrison is clearly positioning himself as Australia’s answer to swing sensation Michael Buble, with a predominantly female audience both young and old swooning over his boyish charms. He clearly knows how to connect with the audience and ropes them into his onstage antics and serenades. Singing classics from Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Franke Valli and more he enchanted the crowd with his dulcet tones and they were amply rewarded with two encores for their standing ovation.
Whilst you may be skeptical of the reality television’s 15 minutes of fame syndrome, Harrison Craig well and truly demonstrated that not only is he talented but he is also here for the long haul.
