Tim Campbell Reveals "High School Disco" Details and Announces National Tour


From the stage, to the screen, to the studio! Tim Campbell has released the cover and track list of his debut album: High School Disco, due for release by ABC Music on 4th April 2014.

Inspired by the dance floor fillers that defined generations, Tim has reworked classic hits from the 70s & 80s with the fun and energetic style that his live show has become known for.

 ‘Play That Funky Music’ is an infectious, high energy version of the song that will instantly take fans back to their younger years. Classic movie tracks ‘Footloose’ and ‘Don’t You (Forget About Me)’ have been reworked with new life, while ‘It Must Have Been Love’ will have slow dancing High School Disco memories flooding back!

“We are now a step closer to the release of High School Disco and I couldn't be any more excited and slightly "good nervous". I'm really proud of the fresh production on this album, and can't wait to share the joy of these memorable and much loved songs”, says Tim.

Tim will also be taking the album on the road – with exciting news of the High School Disco Tour being announced today. The show is certain to be a lively showcase of the album and a fun and fresh look back at the songs everyone remembers.

“As far as the tour goes, don't get me started, I may have a little accident in my pants. I am overly excited about sharing the music from High School Disco, plus many more of the great songs of the 70s and 80s. There's nothing better than singing live with the band and sharing the night with an audience. I expect a few requests and perhaps old school flames to rekindle too. I can guarantee this will be a night of absolute FUN.”

Tim Campbell is a much loved Australian TV & stage actor, singer and host, having starred on shows such as Channel 7’s Home and Away and more recently Channel 9’s House Husbands.
