Wanda Jackson Announces Australian Dates Next March

Wanda Jackson has become the latest Bluesfest act to announce a set of sideshows around Australia for March next year.

Jackson – who famously first toured in 1955 alongside Elvis Presley – will be doing shows in intimate venues in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Newcastle and Sydney.

Having influenced generations of both male and female performers such as Bob Dylan and Adele – Jackson has been dubbed ‘the First Lady of Rockabilly’ and has been getting stellar reviews for her recent shows. In September, the Vancouver Weekly wrote:

“Wanda Jackson positively killed with her set at Venue last Saturday. Volatile as nitro-glycerine, Jackson exudes charms, sexuality, sincerity, and humble honesty;, often in the same verse… Her voice is a true gift to humanity.”

Jackson recently released her 31st studio album Unfinished Business with fellow Bluesfest performer Justin Townes Earle. The album features performances of Woody Guthrie’s California Stars and Bobby and Shirley Womack’s It’s All Over Now.
