FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – MEDIA RELEASE

Kevin Bloody Wilson

Australian comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson is one of few funny-men who totally embody the spirit of ‘Aussie’ humour. He’s performed around the globe, from outback pubs to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium, and now he’s on the road again with his First of the Final Farewell Tours – Perhaps and is heading across the Tasman to New Zealand.

Fans needn’t worry that Kevin is calling it quits though, he’s just out to set a record, contending against some well-known musicians for the ‘most comebacks’ title. “I see everyone doing their final concerts, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon,” he explains. “I’ll probably get three or four years out of this and then I’ll start doing my comebacks.”

He’s also bringing a swag of new material with him on the road. The new album, aptly titled Wrong Wrong Wrong, was released at the end of last year. Of course, he will still be performing all his fan favourites, like D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F, Dick’taphone, I Knew the Bride (When She Used to be a Mole) and Living Next Door to Alan, (plus many more songs, which can’t be mentioned in this press release as their expletives will get blocked by email firewalls.)

As for the shows themselves, Kevin says audiences can expect anything to happen. “There will be lots of full frontal nudity from me,” he jokes. “The show revolves on its own axis, I never know night from night what is going in the show. A lot of ad-lib goes in, it depends what is happening in the world between now and then.”

There could even be an additional song or two penned before he hits the road depending on what inspires him over the next couple of months. “My inspiration comes from walking around with my eyes and ears open, there is no formula to it,” he says. “I guess I have a talent of being able to see the funny side of situations. Originally when I started doing it, it was just for my mates, I had no idea it would one day take off and I’d still be doing it 30 years later. It’s awesome.”

Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is one of legend. Always a larrikin, he originally recorded songs on a cassette tape for his mates, penned about his experiences working in the mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia. In the early 1980s, he put together a tape called Your Average Australian Yobbo and started selling it – sales went into the tens of thousands before it was transferred to LP (where it sold even more). It was just the start of his career and he has never looked back. Fast forward three decades and Kevin is a household name throughout Australia and the world. It’s interesting to know that 30 years ago he was getting arrested for performing his politically incorrect songs in public. Times have changed though and it was only three years ago (in 2010) that Kevin was deservedly nominated for Australian of the Year. As one of the world’s most prolific performers, and a genuinely nice, down-to-earth bloke to boot, it’s not surprising he has earned the reputation as one of Australia’s greatest living treasures.

With many of his songs pushing the boundaries, Kevin Bloody Wilson has earned his place in the entertainment industry without a lot of mainstream media support. His record sales are now nudging the four million mark. All of his CDs and DVDs have achieved gold status globally, with many reaching platinum. In fact one album, Kev’s Back, hit quadruple platinum. His recordings can be found all over the world, from outback Australia to Canada. His music has also been preserved for generations to come in the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra. He has sold out shows around the world and is constantly earning new fans, who are envious of his DILLIGAF attitude.

It’s been a while since Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson toured throughout New Zealand and he is looking forward to the run of shows. New Zealand audiences have embraced Kev’s music from the very start and his First of the Final Farewell Tours – Perhaps dates will be no different. Don’t miss Kevin ‘Bloody’ Wilson as he hits the road with his First of the Final Farewell Tours – Perhaps, with special guest Jenny Talia from Australia.
