ALIA Tours to John Farnham: Brisbane & Melbourne

Posted on Tuesday, September 22nd, 2009

John Farnham Live By Demand is just that. It meets a ceaseless national enquiry over the past three years as to when the man, who has sold more tickets and more albums and notched up more achievements than any other Australian musician, would return to perform.

Featuring big productions in small theatres John and his ten-piece band look back over career highlights, rendering the songs he has to, and wants to. This intimate venue tour will be an opportunity to witness at close quarters a consummate singer and entertainer of more than forty years experience and unparalleled achievement.
