TEX PERKINS REPRISES HIS ROLE AS THE MAN IN BLACK IN 2018 FOR AN AUSTRALIAN TOUR WITH THE TENNESSEE FOUR & RACHEL TIDD

TICKETS ON SALE FROM 12PM LOCAL TIME THURSDAY 8TH FEBRUARY 2018

After a sell-out stint with The Man In Black in Melbourne’s Athenaeum Theatre at the end of 2017, Tex Perkins is once again reprising his Helpmann Award-winning role – this time for a massive Australian tour. Tex, along with the Tennessee Four and Rachael Tidd, will hit the road throughout May and June, taking The Man In Black – The Johnny Cash Story far and wide. Audiences in Victoria, Tasmania, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory will delight as these acclaimed musicians showcase why they won the Best Contemporary Australian Concert accolade.

The last time The Man In Black was toured Australia, the band were on the road for a massive 18-months, racking up sell-out shows and taking the music to some of the best venues in the country. It’s no surprise the show is embraced so much by music-loving audiences – there are few artists within Australia who can translate the work of ‘The Man in Black’ and bring it to modern day like Tex Perkins. His reverence for Johnny Cash’s career is evident in the way he approaches every song.

Johnny Cash made an indelible impact on the international music scene. From his rise to fame in 1954, he had a string of Top 10 hits, including Ring of Fire, Folsom Prison Blues and Don’t Take Your Guns To Town, to name a few. His #1 Billboard smash hit I Walk The Line made him a household name – and sat on the charts for 43 weeks! He has been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, demonstrating the impact his music has had across multiple genres. He passed away in 2003 but is still considered one of the most influential musicians of all time, as his sales of over 50 million records will attest.

Tex Perkins needs no introduction to Australian audiences, he is a legend within the Aussie music industry and is revered as one of the country’s rock n’ roll outlaws. It is said his affinity with Johnny Cash started in his earliest band and is an enthusiasm he hasn’t relinquished. After fronting The Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon and touring with Tex, Don and Charlie and The Dark Horses, Tex Perkins has had an incredible and varied music career.

Don’t miss Tex Perkins as he reprises The Man In Black for this special tour – these shows will sell-out. Tickets are on sale on 12pm local time on Thursday 8th February 2018 via authorised ticketing outlets.
