Naturally, all the best and brightest names in the business have all come along to help Tony celebrate. The album features duets with U2’s Bono, Billy Joel, the Dixie Chicks and Barbara Streisand…just to name a few! Tony teams up with all these guys and more to give new life to a few all-time classics.
Plus, this special edition of Duets, released only in Australia, features our very own Delta Goodrem, teaming up with Tony to record “Steppin’ Out With My Baby”.
Happy birthday, Tony! Here’s to many more long years…and a few more albums along the way, hopefully.
