From John Williamson:

G’day folks! Hope you are all holding up OK.

Sadly due to the current covid situation and travel restrictions we will have to postpone my show at Princess Theatre Launceston on Thursday 15 July.

BUT the good news is that we have rescheduled and the new date is Thursday 24th February, 2022 at 8pm.

Third time lucky!

In the meantime take care.

Cheers, John

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

John is hesitant to say he’s retiring, but acknowledges he won’t continue the regular touring he’s done consistently during his enduring career. ‘I think I’ve spent more time in airport lounges and travelling highways than most and I’m looking forward to winding back and tending to my garden. I’ll still perform at major festivals, but the Winding Back tour is about saying goodbye to a lot of the towns I’ve visited almost annually in the past fifty years.’

Perhaps John’s greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country; of who they are.

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