Ipswich Civic Centre, 50 Nicholas Street Ipswich

Back by popular demand, John Williamson will again return to the stage at Ipswich Civic Centre for one show only. As John slows down from the demands of touring and performs at fewer venues around the country, don’t miss this opportunity to see him, accompanied by his full band.

In 2024 Australian music icon John Williamson will celebrate his 54th year in the entertainment industry– a remarkable achievement. 2020 and 2021 gave John a forced taste of retirement and the realisation that he’s not quite ready to hang up his guitar. However, 2024 will see John travelling less and performing at fewer and more selective venues and events.

Few people have travelled this country as extensively as John, gathering his stories from the people he meets and being inspired by the country he loves so much. He encapsulates in song the beauty, wonder and, sometimes, heartbreak of life Down Under. He has produced enduring classics such as ‘Galleries of Pink Galahs’, ‘Three Sons’, ‘A Bushman Can’t Survive’, ‘Cydi’, ‘Raining on the Rock’, ‘Rip Rip Woodchip’, not to mention ‘True Blue’. From boabs to billabongs and snowy mountains to sandy beaches, the Mallee-born songwriter’s 52 albums, including 20 original studio albums have traversed Australia like a dust-covered road train, deftly moving between larrikin humour and touching pathos.
