Scene News: Tex Perkins – the man in black extra shows announced

Tickets to the two special Melbourne shows of the reprisal of The Man In
Black went on sale this morning and already additional shows are being
added, by popular demand. Tex Perkins and Johnny Cash fans alike now have
more opportunities to see The Man In Black during its limited Melbourne run
with two more shows being added on Wednesday 1st and Thursday 2nd November
2017.

Tex Perkins reprises the show that won him acclaim for at Melbourne’s
Athenaeum Theatre this November. When Tex first took the show out on the
road – for a massive 18-month stint – it won him and the crew a Helpmann
Award for Best Contemporary Australian Concert. It’s no surprise really,
there are few artists within Australia who can translate the work of ‘The
Man in Black’ and bring it to modern day. Tex’s reverence for Johnny Cash’s
career is evident in the way he approaches every song. Melbourne audiences
are certainly in for a treat.

“I am thrilled to be returning to the Athenaeum Theatre with The Man In
Black,” says Tex. “This is where it all began and we have had so many great
shows there! I can’t wait to take to the stage with Rachel Tidd and The
Tennessee Four.”

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.

Don’t miss Tex Perkins as he reprises The Man In Black. Tickets are only
available through authorised ticket seller (Ticketek).
