Ovation Channel presents Helmut Lotti’s Australian tour this September.

Around the world, Belgians are famous for their delicious chocolate, but proving just

as irresistible is Belgian singing sensation, Helmut Lotti, who will be presenting a

series of concerts in Australia in September.

A crooner who has also been described as the “New Elvis”, Helmut Lotti is following

in the footsteps of Andre Rieu, having developed a huge Australian following through

his appearances on FOXTEL and Austar’s Ovation Channel.  

For his Australian concerts, he will be accompanied by the Philharmonia Orchestra in

a musical event that will showcase his considerable talents and charm that has his

female fan base swooning. 

Having been dubbed by the Flemish media as the ‘New Elvis’ at an Elvis

impersonator competition when he was only 19, Helmut Lotti shot to super stardom

within months, dominating both Belgium and European charts and has now sold

more than 13 million albums worldwide. 

Lotti first appeared on Australian television in 2008 with the ‘Helmut Lotti Goes

Classic’ series, fast becoming one of Ovation Channel’s most popular artists.  The

series featured classics such as Ave Maria, Tiny Hands Tiny Feet and Why from

Swan Lake.  Now, almost two decades later, Lotti has achieved worldwide fame

Ovation Channel Managing Director, Gerry Travers says the wait for an Australian

tour for Lotti fans has been long, but it will be an entertainment experience like no


“Helmut has such an amazing presence, captured in both his musical genius and

intimate interaction with the audience,” Mr Travers said.

“Lotti’s tour through Canberra, Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and the Gold Coast is

on the back of the overwhelming interest we have received from the televised


Lotti draws on the melodic tones of 1950’s crooners, singing classical favourites, rock

and roll anthems, and many of his own written songs.

Lotti’s eclectic mix of popular musical styles has seen his popularity extend right

across the globe, with mass audiences throughout the European, African and

American continents. Fluent in Dutch, English, German and French, the talented

linguist has also recorded albums in Spanish, Italian, Hebrew, Russian and Latin.
