Originally from Longford, Ireland, Bobby moved to Australia in 2003 and immediately cemented his place as one of our country’s most in-demand leading men, starring in Jersey Boys, Hot Shoe Shuffle, Blood Brothers, Assassins and, currently, Saturday Night Fever. His debut album The Fantastic Mr Foxwas released by Warner Music Australia and saw Bobby embark on an extensive, sold-out tour of Australia.
