Aussie icon John Williamson is coming to town to get your feet stamping to his biggest hits and songs that have successfully captured the true Aussie spirit.

He’s won three ARIA Awards, 24 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, has release platinum and gold albums and sold over four million records; John’s experience in the music industry is astonishing.

Through 2010-2011 he celebrated a milestone, marking 40 years of success in the entertainment business.

It was in June 1970 when John really made a name for himself. On the talent quest TV show, New Faces, he competed with his self-penned and still much loved ‘silly song’ ‘Old Man Emu’. He won, and ever since has inspired pride in country, love of land and touched millions all over Australia.

Since then he has been stirring the classics such as ‘Cootamundra Wattle’, ‘Raining on the Rock’, ‘Salisbury Street’, ‘Galleries of Pink Galahs’, and public outcries like ‘Rip Rip Woodchip’, ‘A Bushman Can’t Survive’ and let’s not forget his romantic ballads such as ‘Winter Green’ and ‘Hawkesbury River Lovin’.

With his ability to reduce his audience to tears and have them rolling in fits of laughter the next – as well as the opportunity to sing along to his all time hits – you will be assured an exciting night out.

See John at Twin Towns tomorrow night.
