James Reyne is on an extensive tour of Australia visiting regions where the Prime Minister fears to go.

James Reyne’s first hit was ‘Beautiful People’ with Australian Crawl in 1979. That gives him a 35 year legacy now.

With 2014 marking 35 years since Australian Crawl first hit the Australian charts, Reyne is out of his ‘A Crawl To Now’ tour performing his hits spanning decades.

With a catalogue of Crawl and solo hits, the James Reyne setlist has become an all-hit show.

James Reyne A Crawl To Now is playing all over Australia.

As the Prime Minister of Australia said this week, “As Sir Peter Cosgrove and Lady Lynne travel the length and breadth of our country, visiting all the places that aren’t important enough for Prime Ministers”, so to will James Reyne OAM play to Australians living in towns “not important enough for Prime Ministers” to visit.

‘The Boys Light Up’ first charted in April, 1980 but surprisingly it wasn’t that big of a hit at the time.
