431 W. 16th St. - 212-414-5994
Description: MiG Ayesa rose to international fame by placing third in the reality vocal competition Rockstar:INXS, scoring him a record deal with Decca/Universal and a legion of fans all around the world. His version of "Baby I Love Your Way" has been on playlists on radio stations worldwide, and the video of his single "She Loved" was on high rotation throughout Asia. However, Ayesa's story started much longer ago, playing stages all over the world from his home country of Australia to London's West End. One of the highlights of his career was playing the lead in Queen's hit musical We Will Rock You for a couple of years in London. He has just recently finished a highly acclaimed run as Stacee Jaxx in Broadway's Rock of Ages and is about to head off back to London to star in Michael Jackson's Thriller:Live! Ayesa's new album, More Than Ever (2011), is a collection of songs written over a number of years and recorded all over the world. The album is ready to be launched in style at New York's Highline Ballroom. Tonight's show will not only be his official album launch but will also be his "Farewell USA" show. It will include a set of songs from his albums as well as selections from his Broadway shows and some of his all-time favorite songs. Special guests will join Ayesa and his band to set the Highline alight with his infectious brand of rock and pop.
