Australian singer John Farnham will plays his album Whispering Jack in full at a series of A Day on the Green concerts at wineries across the country.
Whispering Jack is the highest-selling Australian record of all time, and the second highest overall behind only Meatloaf’s A Bat Out of Hell. It sat at the top of the Australian charts for 25 weeks, going 24 times platinum. It was also the first Australian album to be manufactured on CD.
The album includes massive hit You’re the Voice, a song that every single Australian other than Malcolm Turnbull knows the words to. Farnham last toured the album in 2011 to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
John Farnham retired in 2002 only to return two years later for a tour with Tom Jones, and has embarked on several comeback tours since. Which is fair enough, because after all, we ‘gotta make ends meet, before we get much older.
Farnham will be supported on the tour by fellow Australian musical icons Daryl Braithwaite and Russell Morris, Grammy Award winner Richard Marx, and ’90s pop-band Bachelor Girl, who are reforming for a 20th-anniversary tour.
General-public tickets go on sale Friday July 13 at 10am. Tickets here. Pre-sale tickets available from July 9.
