This year marks an auspicious anniversary for Tex Perkins - it's a decade since he first took to the stage with his award-winning show, The Man In Black – The Songs and Story of Johnny Cash. Since its inception, The Man In Black show has been lauded by critics and fans alike. The show won Tex and his crew a Helpmann Award for Best Contemporary Australian Concert and any repeat performances have consistently sold out around the country. To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show, Tex Perkins is taking the show back out on the road.
It's no surprise the show is embraced so much by music-loving audiences – there are few artists within Australia who can translate the work of Johnny Cash and bring it to modern day like Tex Perkins. His reverence for Cash's career is evident in the way he approaches every song.
