Premier Artists and The Harbour Agency present
Last drinks at the Morrison Hotel Tour
The Whitlams are thrilled to announce that two of their favourite artists will join the shows in the capital cities next year – Bob Evans and Ella Hooper – in the “Last drinks at the Morrison Hotel Tour.”
It’s 20 years since “Blow Up the Pokies” was released on the multi-platinum album “Love this City” and even though all the band can really do is shrug their shoulders that nothing has changed on the pokies front they can mark the passage of time and recall partying like it was 1999 by playing most of the album each night on this tour. Tim Freedman says “I have identified 12 songs and two bonus tracks that I still want to play from Love this City, so that will make up the core of show this May and June. The other half of the rambunctious long set will wander widely through the other five albums, stopping off for six minutes at Bob Dylan’s ‘Tangled up in Blue’ which it’s time to play again”. The band’s career achievements include seven albums, three multi-Platinum and three Gold and three ARIA Awards, including the Best Group presented by Gough Whitlam in 1998. In 2011 Eternal Nightcap was voted 27th on the ABC’s ‘My Favourite Album’ poll, and more recently earned the 17th spot in ‘Triple J¹s Hottest Australian Albums of All Time’.

Some voices are like old friends, familiar at once not broken by time or distance.
Schumann’s voice carries the wind in from the outback. It has grains of red dust and yellow earth, it’s flecked with toil, hardship, humanity and love. It’s as old as the land, with a gnarled weariness, like the weathered bark of a gum, tinged with the light of hope.
He sings of Australia, of its past and present, its people.
John Schumann, welcome, come in. Sing us your songs. He is here once more with his Vagabond Crew.”
Warwick McFadyen ‘The Daily Review’
John Schumann is one of the very few songwriters who have changed the way a nation thinks. Known for his leadership of the legendary folk-rock band Redgum, and his Vietnam veterans’ anthem, I Was Only 19, John Schumann’s career spans over 35 years.
He has received almost every award the industry has to offer – some twice over.
In late 2005, after a 15 year sabbatical with his young family, John Schumann returned with Lawson, a highly acclaimed album of songs drawn from the poetic works of Henry Lawson. John’s current band, The Vagabond Crew, named after a line in the Lawson poem, Knocking Around, had its genesis in the recording of the “Lawson” album.
Signed to a new label ABC/Universal Music in 2007, John also released Gelignite Jack – The John Schumann Collection, Behind the Lines and his 2018 album Ghosts and Memories –all recorded with The Vagabond Crew.
Packed venues and standing ovations demonstrate how John Schumann has earned for himself a stellar reputation as an inspirational, intelligent and defiantly Australian performer.
John Schumann and The Vagabond Crew are sought after to play at important and high-profile events here in Australia and overseas. John and has also travelled to East Timor, Afghanistan (twice), the Solomon Islands and Tanzania to entertain the Australian forces deployed there.
Described by rock historian Glenn A. Baker as “One of the finest songwriters this country has produced”, John’s songs have been paid the ultimate compliment by becoming the property of the people and the country they were written about. His lyrics are on reading lists in schools, colleges and universities throughout Australia.
John Schumann still lives in Adelaide. He has upset many people in positions of importance both there and interstate. He claims not to care.
