special event in December at Melbourne’s Palms at Crown for his revered The
Man In Black show with the Tennessee Four with Rachel Tidd. The tour, which
featured more than 16 dates, sold-out throughout eight states and
territories, including an acclaimed show at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda.

The Man In Black tour won Tex Perkins a Helpmann Award for its first
18-month long run and it’s not surprising to see why it resonates so well
with audiences. The Man In Black – The Johnny Cash Story is an
unforgettable experience to say the least. There are few artists within
Australia who can translate the work of ‘The Man in Black’ and bring it
to modern day like Tex Perkins. His reverence for Johnny Cash’s career is
evident in the way he approaches every song and his live performance of the
great man is mesmerizing.

Johnny Cash made an indelible impact on the international music scene. From
his rise to fame in 1954, he had a string of Top 10 hits, including Ring of
Fire, Folsom Prison Blues and Don’t Take Your Guns To Town, to name a few.
His #1 Billboard smash hit I Walk The Line made him a household name – and
sat on the charts for 43 weeks! He has been inducted into the Country Music
Hall of Fame and the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, demonstrating the impact his
music has had across multiple genres. He passed away in 2003 but is still
considered one of the most influential musicians of all time, as his sales
of over 50 million records will attest.

Tex Perkins needs no introduction to Australian audiences, he is a legend
within the Aussie music industry and is revered as one of the country’s
rock n’ roll outlaws. It is said his affinity with Johnny Cash started in
his earliest band and is an enthusiasm he hasn’t relinquished. After
fronting The Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon and touring with Tex, Don and
Charlie and The Dark Horses, Tex Perkins has had an incredible and varied
music career.
