A tribute to the outlaws of country.
Kris Kristofferson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson - four towering giants in the music industry collectively known as The Highwaymen. The quartet has a unique connection to Australians that has only strengthened over the last two decades. The Highwaymen toured Australia in 1991 and 1995, playing Newcastle, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane, attracting hundreds of thousands to their concerts and appearances and generating an excitement rivalled only by that of The Beatles.
Now, Canadian-born international performer and producer Dail Platz - along with Graeme Jensen, Gary LeGear, Dallas Southam and Laurie Keating, has re-created the magic that is The Highwaymen.
The show features great musicianship with pedal steel guitar, acoustic and electric guitars, drums, banjo, mandolin, fiddle and harmonica.The Highwaymen Tribute Show is a musical and visual re-creation - right down to their desert backdrop and the trademark rifle coats.
All the Highwaymen’s great songs are included: ‘Silver Stallion’, ‘Live Forever’, ‘The Highwayman’ and many more, along with individual classics like ‘Luckenbach Texas’, ‘On the Road Again’, ‘Folsom Prison Blues’, ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Help me Make it Through the Night’ – 40 classic songs in all.
