Come and join Leaving Jackson for a night of everything, Johnny Cash. You will hear all the hits in a 2-hour live concert – “Folsom Prison Blues, Jackson, Walk the Line, Boy Name Sue, Ring of Fire, San Quentin, Big River, Hurt, Get Rhythm, Ghost Riders, Highway Man, Sunday Morning Coming Down” and much more.
Leaving Jackson has spent the past four years creating one of the fastest-growing tribute shows in Australia. With performances at some of the country’s largest theatres, like the Opera House in Wellington and the Palais Theatre in Melbourne.
Not only is the Act growing, but the touring schedule is too. “We are set to head back overseas in 2025 with tours of North America and the UK already in the pipeline. This will be Leaving Jackson’s biggest test yet ‘to make it in an overseas market’ Singer Jeff Carter explains. “To perform an American Icon in the USA is the ultimate challenge, so there is still a lot of work to be done, but hopefully, the hard work will pay off”.
Johnny Cash and June Carter were one of the most legendary couples in the world of country music. Their love story, which started as a professional collaboration on stage, blossomed into a lifelong romance that lasted until Cash’s death in 2003. The duo was famous for their on-stage chemistry and musical talent, and they supported each other through personal struggles and health issues. Their music continues to inspire new generations of artists and fans.
Leaving Jackson – The Johnny Cash and June Carter Show stars Jeff Carter as Cash and Melanie Lewin as June, and they are both accompanied by a full backing band that will be guaranteed to get your toes tapping. This is one show that you won’t want to miss.
Catch the show on Friday, March 31, at the Brolga Theatre and Convention Centre in Maryborough, from 7.30 pm.
