Highly acclaimed country music star Adam Harvey is bringing his Harvey’s Bar Tour to the Young Services Club on August 5.
Multiple Aria Award nominee and eight time Golden Guitar winner, Adam Harvey is one of Australia’s most popular and enduring country stars with a career spanning over two decades.
Encapsulating half a million sales, gold and platinum albums, Adam’s new endeavour, Harvey’s Bar... The Backyard Sessions debuted at No 1 on the ARIA Country Album Charts and remained in the top spot for an incredible seven weeks.
Written and recorded in his bar at home, in a part of the world which Adam refers to as ‘The Peoples’ Republic of Bateau Bay’, Harvey was able to gather up friends and neighbours for an after hour's sing-a-long with a few beers and his trademark one liners.
“Because I've written a few drinking songs in the past, and I talk about how this happened in the bar, or we wrote this in the bar, I have a lot of people that come up to me and say God, I'd love to spend a night in that bar,” explained Harvey.
“I started to think why don't we try and take a bit of that bar atmosphere and bring the bar to those people. That was the whole idea of the album... now the fun begins, I get to take this show on tour”.
“I think that a lot of artists are frightened to allow their audience or listeners into their own personal life.
“That has never been something that's worried me.
“Country music fans are like one big family and with this album and tour I want to try and let them inside my home, with my family and friends.
“The idea behind this show is to invite the audience into that personal space, so they can get a feel for a night with me, in my bar at home,” he said.
