THE BIG RED TOUR
John Williamson is as Aussie as they come, his words and poetry come from the inspiration he finds across the country and South Australia is not a destination left off his agenda. Whether touring or just popping in to once again take in the majesty of The Flinders Ranges or catch up with mates Maggie and Colin Beer in the Barossa, this True Blue Australian knows South Australia well and loves any chance to return.
And he is.
It’ll have been over 14months since he visited South Australia, the state the provided him with the inspiration for his song PRAIRIE HOTEL PARACHILNA on his new album ‘The Big Red’. The song is in his show and he can’t wait to introduce it live to fans across SA.
He is firmly cemented in the nation’s musical culture, his impressive career spans more than forty years. He has survived and soared in the often cut-throat entertainment industry. His unofficial anthems, tributes to legends and unsung heroes and tender ballads have captured the spirit of the nation in song unlike any other. His honest and passionate songs are synonymous with the country that inspires him and connect him with his countrymen regardless of age, sex or creed.
Add to this his ability to deliver unforgettable live concert experiences that combine the perfect blend of humour, romance and campfire stories woven together by his music. You can understand why he is one of the most in-demand live performers in Australia.
