Johnny Cash was a recording star from 1955 until his death in 2003. He had recorded nearly 1,500 songs on over 470 albums.
A quick review of his career shows he was not merely a most successful country artist, but that he is also one of the most successful artists in popular music, having put 48 singles on billboard 100 pop charts which is one more than The Rolling Stones. The Stones do have slight advantage in that they are still alive and may well record again.
Johnny Cash placed 26 albums on the pop charts between 1955 and 1972, the same number as the Beatles during that span. He was one of the few people in the history of music to sell more than 50 million records.
The Johnny Cash stage show is truly a tribute to Johnny Cash. Canadian entertainer, Dial Platz has been able to capture not only the vocal style but also the look and the personality of Johnny Cash.
Dail is also one of Australia’s top Multi-Instrumentalists playing five string banjo, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, mandolin and fiddle.
Other tributes included in the show are: Willie Nelson – Charlie Daniels and Johnny Horton featuring many Aussie favourites like The Devil went down to Georgia, Duelling Banjos, The Battle of New Orleans etc.
Dail takes pride in presenting a “Real Stage Show” with front of house production, full stage backdrop, follow spot and awesome costumes.
The producer of the “Johnny Cash Show”, Dail Platz, is a well respected international performer who has paid his dues and has won the respect of his peers.
Usual after show comments include “the best show I’ve ever seen”, and “when will he be back”.
If you only get out to see one show this year, make it the Johnny Cash Tribute Show.
