“When you see him playing you think ‘Oh my god, he’s doing that all by himself’.” Eric Idle, Monty Python
“Imagine Chet Atkins with the testosterone of Eddie Van Halen...” Steve Vai
Australia’s world acclaimed acoustic guitar icon Tommy Emmanuel CGP returns home this October, for an increasingly rare capital city tour. Tommy brings the power and dynamism of a full band to his solo acoustic playing, with incredible charisma, stunning speed and dexterity and unerring command of melody.
Tom’s message is pure love for the guitar and the music and his delight in sharing it with the world, one audience at a time. Tommy’s greatest honour was being named by his childhood idol Chet Atkins as a 'Certified Guitar Player' (CGP). The legendary US guitarist and producer Atkins gave this designation to only five players in history.
For the first time ever in Australia, two CGPs will perform on the same bill, as Tommy is joined by special guest Steve Wariner CGP, direct from Nashville. An acclaimed hit songwriter and world-renowned finger style guitarist, Steve will open all shows – and he and Tommy may even team up for some very special surprises.
