August 2013 - December 2013
|Fresh from their very successful 2012 national tour, Johnny Cash the Concert is back to celebrate all things CASH bringing to life an incredible new concert experience!|
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of one of Cash’s biggest hits and best loved songs, “Ring of Fire”, Australia’s OWN “Man In Black”, Daniel Thompson, returns with an award-winning ensemble featuring Golden Guitar Winner (Alternate Country Album of the Year - 2013 Golden Guitar Awards) and Australian Guitar Legend, Stuie French.
This two-hour show will feature the tracks that made Johnny Cash’s live show something special. June Carter and The Carter Family, The Statler Brothers, Carl Perkins and Cash’s gospel greats will all be featured in the first half of the show whilst the second set culminates Cash’s biggest hits including his 1963 hit “Ring Of Fire”.
Recorded in Nashville with mariachi-style trumpets and Carter Family on backing vocals, Ring Of Fire (written by June Carter and Merle Kilgore) was Cash’s biggest hit earning him the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Singles Chart for seven weeks. With it’s instantly recognisable and distinctive sound, it went on to become one of Cash’s best known and most loved songs.
Joining the tour is multi-Award Winning Singer/Songwriter Tamara Stewart. Tamara took home the Golden Guitar for Vocal Collaboration at this years Golden Guitar Awards for her self penned hit, “Women in Song”, celebrating the long heritage of women in Australian Country Music.
And of course the show wouldn’t be complete without our “engine room”, the best rhythm section in the country, The Tennessee Studs.
Last years “80th Birthday” tour was not to be missed. This show will have music lovers talking for a long time to come. This authentic tribute to a true Icon of the 20th Century will leave audience members feeling like they’ve just seen the real live Man in Black!
