About the event

After six national tours and having performed more than 175 shows, Johnny Cash Live has become lauded as one of Australia’s premier tribute acts. With powerhouse backing band, The Tennessee Express and led by Australia’s own "Man in Black", Daniel Thompson, Johnny Cash Live presents an unforgettable night paying tribute to one of music’s most iconic and influential figures.

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of 1968’s At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin.

With Folsom kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin continued his meteoric rise to his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music.

During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates on side with his song 'San Quentin' which opens with the lyrics “San Quentin, you’ve been living hell to me” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, 'A Boy Named Sue', which undeniably made Cash a global superstar and household name. 'Sue' became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by The Rolling Stones 'Honky Tonk Women'.

50 Years on, Daniel Thompson’s Johnny Cash Live hits the road celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black.

A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career.
