JOHN FARNHAM TOUR NEWS22nd July, 2010
JOHN FARNHAM LIVE! FOR HIS FIRST A DAY ON THE GREEN EVENTS
CONTINUES 10TH ANNIVERSARY SEASON
Australia's favourite winery concert series continues its 10th anniversary season with Aussie icon John Farnham set to play his first a day on the green events.
Farnham will perform three a day on the green shows in VIC, NSW and WA as part of his John Farnham Live! national tour in October/November. Concerts dates are October 23 Rochford Wines, Yarra Valley VIC, October 30 Robert Oatley Vineyards, Mudgee NSW and November 27 Kings Park & Botanic Garden, Perth WA.
Announcing the tour today, John said: "I love doing outdoor shows and the vineyards around Australia are such beautiful venues to perform at."
For a man who has sold more tickets, more albums and notched up more achievements than any other Australian musician, performing live is still an absolute joy. This next round of shows continues Farnham's ever-evolving musical life, which these days remains in balance with his time away from centre stage.
The concerts will once again feature Farnham's long-time and hugely acclaimed band, featuring Chong Lim (musical director), Angus Burchell (drums), Stuart Fraser (guitar), Brett Garsed (guitar), Steve Williams (saxophone, harp), Bob Coassin (trumpet), Craig Newman (bass), Lindsay Field (backing vocals), Lisa Edwards (backing vocals) and Dannielle Gaha (backing vocals).
Together they will work through Farnham's phenomenal songbook, giving audiences the chance to once again see this consummate singer and entertainer in full flight. These select shows will also give Farnham fans an exclusive sneak preview of some brand new songs that he is currently recording for his new album.
Whilst Farnham's achievements are far too many to document, perhaps these two require acknowledgement. On record, 'Whispering Jack' remains Australia's highest selling album by a domestic artist ever and on stage, Farnham has performed a staggering total of 164 concerts at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena and the Sydney Entertainment Centre - a feat unlikely to ever be topped.
So, please welcome this much-loved Australian icon back to centre stage for John Farnham - Live!
