Air Supply performing "Lost in Love" live in 2012
Since the dawn of music, artists have painted heartbreak and desire with palettes of melody, struggling to create the perfect love song. When done right, it strikes a chord that resonates within the hearts of millions. It's a daunting task, but for British-Australian soft-rock legends [Air Supply](http://www.airsupply-online.com), writing love songs is as easy as breathing. In 1975 songwriter Graham Russell and singer Russell Hitchcock met at a rehearsal of Jesus Christ Superstar in Sydney. As the gents bonded over their shared love of singing and of The Beatles, they uncovered the ethereal harmonies that later defined the Air Supply sound. From one guitar and two voices to a full-fledged band, the Russells climbed the ladder of success in Australia, but didn't jump over to America’s rungs until 1980. Then Arista released their breakthrough album, Lost in Love, and the title track became the fastest-selling single in the globe, gracing the ears of radio listeners like a warm kiss. With Russell Hitchcock's sugarcoated tenor pouring over Graham Russell's chiming six string, the band rivaled The Beatles’ run of consecutive top-five singles as smashes such as "Every Woman in the World" and "All Out of Love" made Americans want to hold hands in public again, even if it was against the law. After 38 years, Air Supply still romances the world and supplies new sonic valentines with albums such as 2010's Mumbo Jumbo and their latest singles, "Sanctuary" and "Everywhere." Live, the harmonies continue inducing goose bumps as the band finesses all of the greatest hits from their hearty songbook. ####Count Basie Theatre Upon entering the Count Basie Theatre, guests may feel as though they’ve slipped through a crack in time and ended up in the early 1900s. Opulent marble staircases and gold details immediately grab the eyes of visitors, evoking the decadence of Hollywood’s history and gently pulling guests toward the auditorium. There, the acoustically pleasing construction wins out as sound spreads and funnels through a sunburst dome embellished with a chandelier. These features have helped the Count Basie earn numerous accolades since it opened in 1926, including a nod from Pollstarmagazine, which listed it as one of the Top 100 Worldwide Theatre Venues.
