Tonight I am off to see John Farnham in concert with Lionel Richie. Now before you start going on and on and on about John Farnham and his last time… that is exactly what I am about to talk about, so just stop, take a breath and calm your farm.
I feel like this is something that I have wanted to explain, tried to explain many many many times but usually get cut off, because no one really wants to hear it, no one cares that John Farnham’s ‘Last Time’ tour was in fact a Last time… it just wasn’t the way you all think. The ‘Last Time’ Tour was the last tour John Farnham did that went Australia wide, regional cities included… and it really was. Since the ‘Last Time’ I have been to a number of John Farnham concerts… but all of these have been right here in Melbourne… a capital city… and while he may have also done concerts in other states, he didn’t go to Bendigo or Geelong or any other regional cities… why? because he had finished doing that in his ‘Last Time’ tour… It was the last time… he wasn’t trying to be misleading or annoying… or to become a never ending joke… he was actually doing his last full-scale national tour. “The Last Time” was the title track of the album he released prior to the tour… and it is still something that he has kept his word on. So stop asking… or even just commenting… it’s getting old!
Besides just as a side note ‘The Last Time’ was actually a song written and originally performed by Mick Jaggar… but you don’t see him coping the same flack… despite the fact that he is still going and the song was released in the 1960s.
Anyway… I feel better now that I have let that out and said my piece… I am off to enjoy the concert in peace… and if needed refer any questions or smart comments right here.
