Anthony followed his debut single with another multi-platinum number 1 single, a self-titled multi-platinum number 1 selling album and another two top 10 hits came off this debut album with Hurts so Bad and Per Sempre. His sophomore album A New Chapter was accredited Gold and featured two top 20 singles. Anthony’s first Live Concert DVD debuted at No 3 on the Aria DVD Charts and reached Platinum sales. Along with headlining his own national tours, Anthony has toured with Celine Dion, Diana Ross, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Westlife and was hand picked to perform for Luciano Pavarotti, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Frederik and Princess Mary of Denmark.

Anthony has taken his dynamic vocals and energetic performance style to Los Angeles and Las Vegas where he performed to packed houses in West Hollywood and the famous Planet Hollywood on the Vegas strip. He has also performed in Stockholm, South Africa and Dubai.
In 2013, not only did he release the ARIA top 20 album THIRTY but the much anticipated album This Is Christmas.
In May 2014, Anthony took to the stage for what was meant to be a one off performance celebrating the music of George Michael. It has been over 30 years since George Michael released his first solo single, Careless Whisper and after a sell out concert of Ladies & Gentlemen, The Songs of George Michael months leading up to his performance, he decided to take this spectacular concert around the country. To coincide with this national tour, Anthony released the ARIA Number 1 Ladies & Gentlemen, The Songs of George Michael LIVEConcert DVD on August 1st, which then turned into a television special on Foxtel’s STUDIOChannel.
