This show is touring here this week.

Have not as yet bought a ticket but must be worth a look.

Anyone seen it ?

I've heard good feedback from friends whose opinions I would trust.

Tex is a notorious showoff, so apparently has a lot of fun anytime flirting with "June Carter" is required.

Saw the show last year & i liked it very much as did the entire group i went with.
The audience had a mix of old & young punters & all seemed to enjoy it as much as myself.

Tex Perkins, Rachael Tidd and The Tennessee Four who comprises of Peter Luscombe on drums (Rockwiz), Steve Hadley on bass (Men at Work), James Black on guitar (Rockwiz) and Ash Naylor on acoustic guitar (Even)all blend together to make for a great performance..

A few well deserved encores plus they put on some extra shows due to popularity.

The show was written by Australian theatrical producer Jim McPherson (Wild World – The Cat Stevens Story) who confesses to a 40-year fascination with the wildly unpredictable star.
The Man in Black is two hours of Cash’s greatest hits interwoven with the story of his rise to stardom, fight for survival and eventual redemption makes for at times a tragic story but they lighten things with humour & some of the music.

All done in spoken word with songs fitting the timeline.
Both singers & band did a great job.
For his time on stage Tex was the man in black.

Mr Bongo,you have been off the forum and now you are back cleansed of all the negative points.

Tickets are $87.10 including all fees.

Is it worthwhile at that ?

Emphasizes the value provided by Bluesfest.

Have seen the show a couple of times (I'm a huge Tex fan), but also taken loads of friends to see it who were varying degrees of Tex & Johnny Cash fans and everyone raved about it. Would definetely recommend it to anyone!

We got our tickets cheap @ $40 each due to buying in bulk (somewhere around 15 in our group)
Concession prices were the same so i would of got the ticket cheap regardless.
All up dinner drinks the show & post show coffe desert & drinks for around $70 made for a great night @ a good price for us.
