Tom Burlinson announces Adelaide show dates- 16 & 17 October, Her Majesty’s Theatre

“It’s wonderful to be able to announce a return to Adelaide, this time with my Swingin’ Standards show. It’s been a difficult year with lockdowns and the global pandemic forcing the postponement of the original April dates. But I was always hopeful we would be able to reschedule and it’s a thrill to be able to return to the beautiful Her Majesty’s Theatre with a 20 piece orchestra in October this year.” – Tom Burlinson
