Tickets on sale from 9am AEST Monday 23rd July 2018 via Ticketmaster

After a sell-out run of shows in early 2018, Tex Perkins has announced a special event in December at Melbourne’s Palms at Crown for his revered The Man In Black show with the Tennessee Four with Rachel Tidd. The tour, which featured more than 16 dates, sold-out throughout eight states and territories, including an acclaimed show at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda.

The Man In Black tour won Tex Perkins a Helpmann Award for its first 18-month long run and it’s not surprising to see why it resonates so well with audiences. The Man In Black – The Johnny Cash Story is an unforgettable experience to say the least. 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 and his live performance of the great man is mesmerizing.

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 December concert in Melbourne. Tickets go on sale at 9am AEST Monday 23rd July 2018 via Ticketmaster. Tickets are only available through the authorised ticket outlet.
