Alan's First Australia Tour Stop - Melbourne!
Alan Jackson launched his first tour of Australia by playing to a sold-out crowd at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. The fans were on their feet from the very first note to the last and sang along on every song. Alan was visibly humbled and overwhelmed by the crowd participation.
On Sunday Alan headlines CMC Rocks the Hunter Festival in Hunter Valley, then on to Sydney on Monday, with a three night stand in Brisbane later in the week. All six shows sold out in minutes when tickets went on sale last fall – Jackson’s tour is the biggest country outing to hit Australia in nearly 20 years.
Alan has scored nearly 40 Top 10 hits in Australia, with 15 of them going all the way to #1! His biggest songs “down under” include “Good Time,” “It’s Five O’Clock Somewhere,” “Little Bitty” and “I’ll Go On Loving You” – each spent a month at the top of the Australian charts.
