Though he’s not really experienced mainstream chart success for the past 20 years, there’s no denying John Paul Young’s standing within the Australian music industry.
So loved and respected is he by audiences and critics alike that he was inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame back in 2009.
Through the 1970s, JPY had a string of chart success, including top ten singles ‘Yesterday’s Hero’, ‘The Love Game’ and ‘I Hate The Music’, along with the inimitable ‘Love Is In The Air’, which was resurrected in 1992 through its use in the movie ‘Strictly Ballroom’.
In 2012, John celebrates his 40th anniversary in the business, kicking it all off with a duo of concerts in Sydney and Melbourne.
He’ll be playing the hits we’ve loved from across his four decade career, including those previously mentioned.
Each ticket purchased to the shows will also come with a free live DVD.
Tickets for both shows are on sale on Monday March 19.
May 04 : Melbourne (Regent Theatre)
