As the desert wind picks up a roly poly and drops it again here and there, so does John Williamson make his way across the country at selected locations. Not one to say heís retiring just yet, donít miss the opportunity to experience the man himself throughout 2022 before he does decide to hang up his trusty Maton guitar and give it a well-earned rest.

From his humble beginnings as a young wheat farmer from the Mallee, who walked into Richmondís GTV9 studios in 1970 with a guitar under his arm and one song, Old Man Emu, to his name, John Williamson has made an art of capturing Australia in song like no others. His performance of this song on Channel Nineís popular New Faces program resulted in a number one single and a record deal. But perhaps Johnís greatest legacy is making Australians proud of their country and of who they are.

ĎIn 2020, COVID made a liar out of my ĎWinding Backí tour with all my concerts from early March having to be postponed and rescheduled again and again. And itís still happening. But 2020 gave me the break Iíd been craving to spend more time at my property at Springbrook, working on other creative projects; projects Iíve not had the time to do before. But I also missed the audiences, who have been so beautiful to me for such a long time. After 52 years, I think I HAVE earned a bit more peace in my life. So the ĎIn Concertí tour will take in selected locations and venues to allow me more time at home but still perform to my loyal fans and Iíll give them all Iíve got.í

With honours including the ARIA Hall of Fame, an Order of Australia, 28 Golden Guitar Awards, Australian Roll of Renown induction, 52 albumsĖincluding 20 original studio albums, over 5 million albums sold and thousands of shows performed, itís hard to begrudge the 76-year-old singer song writer a less hectic schedule.

So, donít miss John Williamson, True Blue himself. Moving between his larrikin humour and touching pathos, heíll make you laugh, make you cry and take you to places youíll just have to visit for yourself!
