LEE KERNAGHAN ANNOUNCES MASSIVE MILESTONE ANNIVERSARY TOUR
CELEBRATING 25 YEARS SINCE THE RELEASE OF THE ICONIC SMASH HIT
BOYS FROM THE BUSH AND SEMINAL ALBUM OUTBACK CLUB
The year 2017 brings new music, a national tour and a brand-new album from 36-time Golden Guitar winner Lee Kernaghan. To celebrate the silver anniversary of his ARIA award winning debut album, Outback Club (1992), Lee is gearing up for what is set to be his biggest and most exciting tour ever. The Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour will feature his classic hits, ballads and rural anthems that have won Lee a nationwide legion of fans that he prefers to call ‘mates’. With 34 number one hits to his credit, the show is set to be a major celebration of Kernaghan’s career and will also feature special performances from his brilliant new 25th Anniversary album, set for release in March.
The national tour will be launched on Australia Day at the Toyota Tamworth Country Music Festival with a star-studded show at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Convention Centre. The concert promises to be an historic Tamworth event with Lee Kernaghan fans travelling from near and far to be a part of what is set to be a massive milestone year for Lee.
The national tour dates continue in April and run through to November 2017. Lee will be joined by a stellar line-up of special guests throughout the tour [see venue dates for details] including the legendary James Blundell, hit maker Tania Kernaghan, Best New Artist Golden Guitar Winner (2016) Christie Lamb and CMC award-winning artists The Wolfe Brothers who will join Lee for the entire tour.
In addition to Lee’s anniversary tour dates, he is also scheduled to perform at some of the biggest country music events of the year. In March, he will share the CMC Rocks QLD stage with international superstars the Dixie Chicks. He will also headline at ‘the world’s most remote music concert’ the Big Red Bash near Birdsville in QLD in July, where he will perform to an estimated 7000-strong crowd. Joining Lee on stage will be special guests Troy Cassar-Daley, The McClymonts and James Blundell, in a unique and exclusive 25th anniversary event. Lee will also make a headline performance at the iconic Deni Ute Muster in September. In October Lee takes to the high seas with The McClymonts, John Williamson, Adam Harvey and a host of Australian music stars for Cruisin’ Country. Lee Kernaghan’s Boys From The Bush 25th Anniversary Tour is set to be an unforgettable concert experience, so book your tickets early and join the celebration of the epic career of one of this country’s all-time greats.
