John Williamson - Winding Back
Next date: Thursday, 21 May 2020 | 08:00 PM
The year 2020 will see Australian music icon John Williamson celebrate his 75th birthday, his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment industry and also a final big year on the road.
It was 1970 when John released his first song, ‘Old Man Emu’ which kick started a five-decade career crafting out some of Australia’s unofficial anthems, tender ballads and songs that captured the outback landscape and the people of the country. He has toured the country like few others selling over 5 million albums along the way and was recognized by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.
With all that he has achieved, his combined milestones in 2020 will also have John officially announcing that 2020 will be his last major year of touring.
2020 will be John Williamson’s ‘Winding Back’ tour. John is hesitant to say he’s retiring, but acknowledges he won’t continue the regular touring he’s done consistently during his enduring career. ‘I think I’ve spent more time in airport lounges and travelling highways than most and I’m looking forward to winding back and tending to my garden. I’ll still perform at major festivals, but 2020 is about saying goodbye to a lot of the towns I’ve visited almost annually in the past fifty years.’
Perhaps John’s greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country; of who they are.
Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does and 2020 could be the final time you get to experience his inspiring concert in your town or city.
