"I look forward to getting out on stage very soon and sharing these special songs with audiences across Australia."



Here, Gary shares five of his favourite songs that feature 'sun' in the title.

The Beatles - 'Here Comes The Sun'

Waking up each morning when I was growing up, I was greeted with The Beatles on my Dad's record player. My brother and I as children ended up jumping on his LPS thinking they would play if we did that. Not great!


The Beatles - 'I'll Follow The Sun'

One of my favourite Beatles songs, it gives me fond memories of my father playing in bands growing up.


Soundgarden - 'Black Hole Sun'

I'm a big fan of Chris Cornell. My producer in LA, Dave Darling, was about to record his last record when he tragically passed – a great loss to our world.


Stevie Wonder - 'You Are The Sunshine Of My Life'

I sang with Stevie Wonder for his daughter Sophia's 16th birthday; a wonderful experience.


John Denver - 'Sunshine On My Shoulders'

My band CDB performed with John Denver in Korea and it was a career highlight – see what I did there?
