JOHN FARNHAM The Voice returns

At a time when You’re The Voice seems to have taken on even more iconic meaning, as an anthem for a new generation of fans to rival Daryl Braithwaite’s The Horses, perhaps we can let go of cynicism around yet another tour in which John Farnham reunites with himself.

Heading to Kings Park & Botanic Garden for a day on the green on Sunday, December 17, he’ll be joined by another big ticket come back when Mondo Rock (Come Said the Boy) take to the green, plus Kate Ceberano (Bedroom Eyes) and The Badloves (Green Limousine).

Farnsy last performed at a day on the green in Perth in 2015. Drawing on the phenomenal songbook of a four decade-long career, the 19-time ARIA Award winner continues to be “The Voice” of Australian music. Whether it’s hits from his landmark 80s albums Whispering Jack and Age Of Reason like You’re The Voice, Pressure Down, A Touch Of Paradise, Age Of Reason and Two Strong Hearts, his earlier material such as Sadie The Cleaning Lady, One and Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, or even his hits with the Little River Band (Playing To Win) there are few Australian performers as beloved.

Last year marked the 30th anniversary of the 24-platinum selling Whispering Jack, which holds iconic status in Australian music history being the first local album to sell more than one million copies in Australia. He’s had an incredible nine number one albums since Whispering Jack, including last year’s chart-topping duets album with Olivia Newton-John, Friends For Christmas.

John Farnham plays a day on the green at Kings Park & Botanic Garden on Sunday, December 17, supported by Mondo Rock, Kate Ceberano and The Badloves. Tickets on sale 9am tomorrow, Friday, July 14.
