Daniel Thompson, the voice of Johnny Cash The Concert is back with In Solitary, an intimate portrait of the Man in Black.

The past 4 years have seen Daniel at the helm of Johnny Cash The Concert playing to more than 16000 Australian Cash fans and from all reports the fans love his faithful and respectful tribute to Johnny Cash and his music.

On their 2013 visit to Western Australia, Daniel and the band were honoured to be invited to perform at Albany Prison.

A rare opportunity to walk in the shoes of the Man in Black himself and a day that few that were present will forget as the music of Johnny Cash came to life once again, inside Maximum-Security walls.

Johnny Cash was one of the most iconic, influential and enigmatic performers of the 20th century. He was perhaps best described in the words of long-time friend, song writing legend Kris Kristofferson….

“He's a poet, he's a picker, he's a prophet, he's a pusher
He's a pilgrim and a preacher, and a problem when he's stoned
He's a walking contradiction, partly truth, partly fiction
Taking every wrong direction on his lonely way back home”

The real truth about the man that was Johnny Cash, is laid bare by Cash himself, in his songs, for everyone to see and regardless of whether or not Kristofferson was actually referring to Cash in these lyrics, they seem to best sum up the legend, the fiction and the truth that was The Man in Black.

In this brand new, intimate acoustic show, In Solitary, Daniel performs songs spanning Cash’s entire incredible career, telling the story of who Johnny Cash was, who he became and why his legend has grown since his death at age 72 in 2003.

Daniel’s very special guest on the In Solitary tour is Multiple-award winning Singer/Songwriter and long-time friend and collaborator, Mike Carr.

With his piano, guitar and vocals, Mike provides the perfect accompaniment to Daniel, his acoustic guitar and the songs of The Man in Black.

Don’t miss this night of the incomparable music of the Man in Black and the legend of Johnny Cash.
