The Man In Black is back! Tex Perkins reprises the show that won him acclaim for four special nights 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 for two special nights! It is guaranteed to be unforgettable. Tickets are only available through authorised ticket seller (Ticketek).
