John Farnham Rochford Sells Out (And By The Way He Never Said He Was Retiring)

As John Farnham sells out yet another show, this time the 12,000 capacity A Day On The Green at Rochford Winery, the usual sarcasm has crept in once again from the (not so close) fans who consistently bring out the faux retirement story.

Despite constantly being reported to the contrary, John Farnham never once said he was going to retire.

The fake retirement story began in 2002. Farnham has just released ‘The Last Time’ album and had announced his ‘The Last Time’ tour to promote the album. The title track was a cover the Rolling Stones 60’s classic ‘The Last Time’. The song lyrics are “maybe the last time, I don’t know”.

When John was asked if his ‘The Last Time’ tour was going to be the last time he was going to tour he answered “you’ll have to listen to the lyrics”.

The gullible reported had no knowledge of the history of The Stones or even seems aware of the history of the song and simply assumed John meant yes.

That one moment started this 16 year comedy of errors journey where the writers incorrect assumption has become bigger than the original answer and is forever being misquoted.

John Farnham is constantly criticised for “lying about his retirement”. It truly was a lie made up by the print media.

It’s a good thing John didn’t really retire. His latest show at Rochford for A Day On The Green is a sell-out (12,000 tickets) and now a second show has been announced.

John Farnham will play A Day On The Green with Daryl Braithwaite, Richard Marx, Russell Morris and Bachelor Girl.

A second show has now been announced for December 9.
