Tex Perkins is celebrating 10 years of performing Johnny Cash songs and will bring his award-winning show to Anita's Theatre in Thirroul on Sunday September 1.
The Man In Black - The Songs and Story of Johnny Cash won Perkins and his crew a Helpmann Award for Best Contemporary Australian Concert.
The production will also head to Melbourne, Canberra, Hobart, Launceston, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney and Brisbane.
"I've loved ... putting on the boots of a legend, exploring the world of Johnny Cash," he said.
"Even though it's all about Johnny Cash, I've put a lot of myself into this show, intentionally and unintentionally."
Perkins has been part of many well-known musical outfits over the years including The Cruel Sea, Beasts of Bourbon, The Butcher Shop, Salamander Jim, and was the subject of a 1997 Archibald entry by artist Bill Leak (which won the Packing Room Prize).
On stage the 54-year-old musician morphes into the man who made an indelible impact on the international music scene with hits like Ring of Fire, Folsom Prison Blues, Don't Take Your Guns To Town and I Walk The Line.
