You can see John Williamson at Jupiters in Townsville on Thursday, July 9 at 7:30pm. 2015 is a big year for John – he will celebrate his 70th birthday, it’s the 45th anniversary of the release of Old Man Emu (after John performed it on TV’s New Faces), his long awaited autobiography, Hey True Blue, has been released and this Honest People tour has taken its name from his 50th album.
John is pretty much a country icon/legend but his music crosses into mainstream with songs that can appreciated by everyone. This tour will showcase new songs off the Honest People album but with such an extensive back catalogue of much-loved songs, the performance will also be packed with favourites.
Some John’s award-winning/top-selling albums are Mallee Boy, Boomerang Café, Warragul, Waratah Street, Mulga to Mangoes, True Blue and The Way It Is. John has won 26 Country Music Awards of Australia, is an inductee into the CMAA’s Roll of Renown and in 210 he was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
