Artist Information

JW ProfilePic

John Williamson

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 recognised by being inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.

With all that he has achieved, 2021 will be John’s last major year of touring.

Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as John does and 2021 could be the final time you get to experience his inspiring concert in Perth.

“It’s been a long wait to get back on stage after the trials of 2020.  I’ve been missing what I have done for the past 50 years, so am really looking forward to ‘Sailing the Nullarbor’ and seeing the smiling faces of West Aussies at Kings Park.”John Williamson

Tex Perkins 'The Man in Black'

A legend within the Aussie music industry, Tex Perkins is revered as one of the country’s rock n’ roll outlaws.  Performing as the 'The Man in Black', Tex will be playing all of the Johnny Cash classics following sold out tour dates in 2017 and 2018.

As the front man of 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, and it’s said his affinity with Johnny Cash started in his earliest band and is an enthusiasm he hasn’t relinquished.
