JOHNNY CASH LIVE Back to San Quentin- 50 Years On

WHEN: 6TH JULY 2019

WHERE: Twin Towns RSL, Tweed Heads

In 1969, off the back of the huge success of his At Folsom Prison album, Johnny Cash recorded the second of his legendary prison albums at California’s notorious maximum security prison, San Quentin.
With the Folsom album kick starting a golden era of Cash’s career, At San Quentin cemented his place as a legendary figure and icon of 20th century popular music.
During the February 24 recording session, in typical Johnny Cash fashion, he got the already enthusiastic inmates onside with his song San Quentin which contains the lyrics “San Quentin, I hate every inch of you” and he immediately replayed the song at the request of his cheering audience with both versions included on the original release of the At San Quentin album. Most notably the album included the worldwide smash hit single, A Boy Named Sue, which undeniably made Cash a superstar and household name. Sue became Cash’s highest ever charting single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and was only held out of the number one spot by the Rolling Stones ‘Honky Tonk Women’.

50 Years on, Johnny Cash The Concert hit the road in 2019 celebrating this legendary album and the career of the Man in Black.
A brand new show featuring more than 35 hits, Back to San Quentin – 50 Years On includes the great moments of the San Quentin album plus the hits and favourites spanning Cash’s entire 50 year recording career.
