In September and October 2021, John Williamson will perform his My Australian Stories five-concert series, only in the capital cities of Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth, taking his audiences on a special journey to places that have inspired his extraordinary career.
Like a tumbleweed across this vast continent, there are few places in his 51 year career that John Williamson hasn’t visited or performed in. He’s pulled up to have a yarn with farmers, miners, station owners and everyday folk who have stories to share. He’s as familiar sitting around a stock camp under the Milky Way as he is sitting on his well-travelled stool on stage.
More than 500 songs later, 27 Golden Guitars and countless accolades, he’s not one to rest on his laurels. Seeing himself primarily as an entertainer, audiences should be prepared to laugh and cry as he takes them on a journey around his beloved Australia. Expect the biggest hits; enduring favourites “Old Man Emu”, “Mallee Boy”, “Galleries of Pink Galahs”, “Cootamundra Wattle”, “Raining on the Rock”, “Chandelier of Stars” and, of course, “True Blue”. But enjoy some surprises; like “Queen in the Sport of Kings”, his first song to win a Golden Guitar, “Coober Pedy”, “Back at the Isa”, “Prettiest Girl in the Kimberley” all could make a comeback.
One thing is certain; his passion for this country is second to none. Williamson will grab your heart, keep you entranced for nearly two-and-a half hours and you will walk away feeling as proud of this country and to be an Australian, as he is.
