Jon Stevens is heading to Western Australia with his Jon Stevens – The Hits Tour, traversing all the hits of his career, from his solo work, right through to Noiseworks, INXS, and even Jesus Christ Superstar. With a back catalogue jam-packed with smash hits, and no shortage of great songs to choose from, the revered singer-songwriter is looking forward to reliving the different times of his musical journey, and sharing those experiences with audiences. There is no better time than the present for Jon to embark on the tour that fans have been asking him to do for years.
“Fans are always asking me to play certain songs that I haven’t done in years, and it just feels like the right time to explore my back catalogue,” says Jon. “It’s interesting for me as I always try to keep moving forward, always adding something new, but I have to say that dusting off some of the old tunes has been nothing short of a revelation. While I can’t play every song, as there are way too many, I have chosen my favourites and I think fans will love it.”
Jon Stevens hasn’t really stopped working – touring, writing or recording – since he first started out in the industry as a young musician. Fast forward to the early 1980s and with five mates Noiseworks smashed onto the Australian airwaves with singles such as No Lies, Love Somebody, Take Me Back, Touch and In My Youth to name a few. They were the embodiment of what Aussie rock was and should be – hard-hitting, talented and they put on a bloody good show. Never one to rest on his laurels, Jon Stevens didn’t stop working when Noiseworks when on hiatus. He followed up with solo albums, multiple stints in stage productions such as Jesus Christ Superstar and earned world-wide acclaim taking centre stage with INXS. In fact, he still has the nod from Andrew Farris to continue to play those hits live, who after attending a recent Jon Stevens show, insisted he add more INXS songs to his setlist. Jon’s next band – The Dead Daisies – stepped up that international reputation with the debut single Lock and Load written with and featuring the legendary Slash on guitar.
Whether touring with INXS, doing the festival circuit with Noiseworks, playing his own headline solo shows to packed houses, one thing has always been consistent with Jon, it is, and always will be, about the music. His hard work over the years has truly paid off, as Jon Stevens is considered one of the country’s premier artists and a legend on the live music scene.
