AFTER a sold out one night only performance at Sydney Opera House last year, Daniel Thompson and Stuie French’s Johnny Cash: The Concert goes national again this year celebrating the Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line.
Released in Australia in 2006, Walk the Line earned more than USD$12 million at the Australian box office and more than USD$180 million worldwide.
Winning five Academy Award nominations including a Best Actor nomination for Joaquin Phoenix as the Man in Black and a Best Actress Oscar for Reese Witherspoon as June Carter, the movie cemented Johnny Cash as an icon of 20th century popular culture and helped introduce his music to a new generation of fans.
Since 2009, Johnny Cash: the Concert has been taking Australia by storm with their authentic tribute to the Man in Black, playing more than 100 shows to more than 35,000 fans.
They completed their fourth national tour in November 2015, once again garnering rave reviews.
