From Johnny to Jack

“When you close your eyes, it’s easy to imagine that Luke Kennedy IS John Farnham.” – Stage Whispers

An unmissable concert experience about the making of Australian icon John Farnham.

Twenty years before Whispering Jack became the highest selling album in Australian history, a teenager named Johnny Farnham stormed onto the Australian music scene with the unconventional smash hit Sadie (The Cleaning Lady).

From Johnny to Jack canvasses the incredible roller-coaster journey of a teen pop idol’s rise and fall, and the making of a rock and roll icon who would become known as The Voice.

Journey with Australian vocal superstar Luke Kennedy (The Voice Australia, Swing On This) and his world-class band on a musical odyssey featuring songs from Farnham’s sensational back catalogue including Playing To Win, One, Don’t You Know It’s Magic and Please Don’t Ask Me, as well as smash hits Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head, Sadie, and You’re The Voice.

“Its jumping energy and feel-good, heart-warming celebration of one of his country’s best-known and most popular performers is so infectious that it immediately has you wanting to bring all your friends along to experience it again.”Blue Curtains Brisbane

“Kennedy not only displayed his incredible vocal skill but created an energetic and entertaining evening that will surely keep the audience singing long after they left the theatre.” – Theatre Haus

“Luke and his band had the audience singing and dancing in the aisles as the popular performer shared more of John Farnham’s musical career through anecdotes, humour and clever song choices.” – Scenestr
