James Reyne crawling into Lennox Head
ACCLAIMED Australian singer songwriter James Reyne is taking his A Crawl to Now tour on a huge run across regional NSW and Victoria from March to May next year.
For long-time fans, Lennox Head is lucky enough to be on the tour route.
A Crawl to Now is a 90-minute live show featuring songs selected from more than 20 albums representing an extensive catalogue - songs from Australian Crawl to now.
"This will be a comprehensive look at the past unto the present. I've sifted through all of the Australian Crawl material with the intention of performing it 'songbook' style," James said.
"To bring out the solo material again and reimagine those songs acoustically is always fun - I'm very excited about these shows."
James has been a favourite on the Australian music scene since making an unforgettable debut on Countdown in 1979, with both arms in plaster - the result of being hit by a car crossing Swanston St in Melbourne.
He was a member of Australian Crawl for seven years, releasing four studio albums in five frenetic years in the '80s.
He's been a solo artist for the past 28 years, releasing eight studio albums, plus two acoustic collections, a covers album and two live albums.
Thirty years after it was released, Australian Crawl's debut album, The Boys Light Up, was featured in The 100 Best Australian Albums.
James will perform on Saturday, March 10, 2018, in Park Lane Theatre, Lennox Head.
Joining him will be guitarist Josh Owen for an acoustic duo format.
The show, an all-ages event, starts at 7.30pm and doors open at 6.30pm.
Tickets are $55 each (plus booking fees) and are now on sale through communityspaces.com.au.
