2020 will see Australian music icon John Williamson celebrate his 75th birthday, his 50th Anniversary in the entertainment industry and also a final big year on the road.
It was 1970 when John Williamson 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 many times over, selling more than 5 million albums along the way, and was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010.
John has officially announced that 2020 will be his last major year of touring. He’s hesitant to say he’s retiring, but he won’t continue the regular touring he’s done consistently during his career. ‘I’ll still perform at major festivals, but 2020 is about saying goodbye to a lot of the towns I’ve visited almost annually in the past fifty years.’
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 2020 could be the final time you get to experience his inspiring concert in Canberra.
