Paul Dainty has been Roxette's Australian tour promoter for many years has been good friends with both Marie and Per for many years also.
Paul Dainty is synonymous with an endless stream of the world’s finest performing artist and productions in music and theatre throughout Australia. Rolling Stone Bee Gees, Neil Diamond, David Bowie, Diana Ross, The Major Arena Tour of Riverdance, Paul McCartney, Mick Jagger, are just a few. The Rocky Horror Show, with Nigel Triffitt at the directing and designing helm, was first produced by Paul in 1992, with Craig McLachlan in the starring role this production toured Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong to capacity houses, becoming one of our most successful and loved stage productions ever. Other Artists such as Michael Jackson, Phil Collins, Harry Connick Jnr., Stevie Wonder, ABBA, Cliff Richard, Prince and the tour ‘coup’ of ’98 – the massively successful tour with comedian Jerry Seinfeld – are among the names that Paul Dainty has become so strongly identified with.
Friendships have been formed and many artists have revisited Australia for concert tours with Paul. Being at the forefront of the Australian entertainment industry, it was in 1995 that he increasingly recognised his business needed a global network to add an international dimension to his operations. This was realised when he forms Dainty Consolidated Entertainment which is jointly owned by PD Entertainment Corporation and Consolidated Press.
This valuable partnership provides a direct link with Ticketek, and access to a major media network, bringing forth a collaboration of creative forces between Australia’s strongest media and publishing group and Australia’s pre-eminent entertainment Producer.
Paul is currently engaged in bring further world class theatrical productions and entertainers in the music field to Australia. Amongst a number of projects he is also working with international impresario Robert Stigwood, with whom he is significantly involved in the highly acclaimed London and The Broadway Production of the stage musical Saturday Night Fever. They will bring this incredible show to Australia in April 2000.
