John Farnham gets thunderous reaction at his first Red Hot Summer show of 2019

John Farnham’s Red Hot Summer return has been greeting with thunderous applause after the Australian superstar was forced to cancel a series of shows prior to this tour.

John Farnham played his first Red Hot Summer show of 2019 at Batemans Bay on Saturday and he was back playing to win. John had been suffering the after-effect of complications from a 2018 operation and was forced to cancel four shows recently. However, even after the recovery period, the stamina from Farnham saw a benchmark performance showing artists half his age how “professional” is done right.

The crowd well knew of John’s recent health issues and this was evident with the roar when he stepped out. The vibe in the crowd continued to build as he worked through the set. While John’s workload is still being managed we are so happy that he is well enough to perform at these upcoming Red Hot Summer Tour dates”.

Earlier that day John’s manager Glenn Wheatley said, “John is back on stage tonight for the Red Hot Summer Tour in Batemans Bay playing to a full house in full voice and having a ball. He is so looking forward to the rest of the tour and apologises for anyone inconvenienced by the cancelled shows and hopes to visit those regions again soon.”

Fans at Red Hot Summer Batemans Bay were treated to the full John Farnham set.
