Coming to COPACC...


 
Johnny Cash in Solitary Tour 2015
Johnny Cash was one of the most iconic, influential and enigmatic performers of the 20th century. He was perhaps best described in the words of longtime friend, songwriting legend Kris Kristofferson….

“He's a poet, he's a picker, he's a prophet, he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walking contradiction, partly truth, partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home”


The real truth about the man that was Johnny Cash, is laid bare by Cash himself, in his songs, for everyone to see and regardless of whether or not Kristofferson was actually referring to Cash in these lyrics, they seem to best sum up the legend, the fiction and the truth that was The Man in Black.

Daniel Thompson, the voice of Johnny Cash The Concert is back with In Solitary, an intimate portrait of the Man in Black.

The past 5 years have seen Daniel at the helm of Johnny Cash The Concert playing to more than 25000 Australian Cash fans and from all reports the fans love his faithful and respectful tribute to Johnny Cash and his music.

In early 2014, In Solitary was born. A very different show to the Johnny Cash The Concert shows, In Solitary focuses on a darker Cash, featuring songs spanning his entire incredible career. Telling the story of who Johnny Cash was, who he became and why his legend has grown since his death at age 72 in 2003.

Daniel’s very special guest on the In Solitary tour is Multiple-award winning Singer/Songwriter, longtime friend and collaborator, Mike Carr, on piano, guitar and vocals.

After a highly successful 2014 tour, Daniel is very excited to embark on a National Tour with this intimate portrait of one of the most intriguing and iconic figures of the 20th century.

Don’t miss this night of the incomparable music of the Man in Black and the legend of Johnny Cash.
