Aussie comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson wasn’t satisfied with just taking his The First of The Final Farewell Tours eras out on the road. If you’re going to give it a whirl saying goodbye, then you need to milk it for all its worth. Enter the Second of The Final Farewell Tours, perhaps that will see the funnyman tour at the start of 2016.

Don’t fear though, this doesn’t mean the end for Kevin Bloody Wilson fans. Chances are, there could be a third, fourth and fifth farewell tour, after all, if you’re going to go out with a bang, then you have to do it right (and practice makes perfect)!

When he announced his first lot of final farewells, which saw him tour the width and breath of Australia in 2013 and 2014, Kev was quick to point out that he was quite keen on setting a record. “I see everyone doing their final concerts, so I thought I would jump on the bandwagon”, he explains. “I’ll probably get three or four years out of this and then I’ll start doing my comebacks”.

As for the shows themselves, Kevin says audiences can expect anything to happen. “There will be lots of full frontal nudity from me”, he jokes. “The show revolves on its own axis, I never know night from night what is going in the show. A lot of ad-lib goes in, it depends what is happening in the world between now and then”.

Kevin Bloody Wilson is one of few funny men who totally embody the spirit of Australian humour. He’s revered as an iconic Aussie around the globe and there would be few proud Australians who don’t know the words to his popular songs. He’s performed around the world, from outback pubs to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium. Not one to rest on his laurels, Kevin is also bringing a swag of new material with him on the road. With a recent album release, aptly titled Wrong Wrong Wrong, that hit fans ears at the end of 2013, plus some always timely new material, no Kevin Bloody Wilson show is ever the same. Always one to delight audiences, Kev will still be performing all his fan favourites, like I Knew the Bride (When She Used to be a Mole) and Living Next Door to Alan, (plus many more songs, which can’t be mentioned in this press release as their expletives will get blocked by email firewalls.)

The story behind Kevin Bloody Wilson is one of legend and shows that you can really carve a career out of raw talent and lot of laughs (with a sprinkle of naughty along the way). Always a larrikin, he originally recorded songs on a cassette tape for his mates, penned about his experiences working in the mines in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.

In the early 1980s, he put together a tape called Your Average Australian Yobbo and started selling it. Sales went into the tens of thousands before it was transferred to LP (where it sold even more). It was just the start of his career and he has never looked back. Fast forward three decades and Kevin is a household name throughout Australia and the world. It’s interesting to know that 30 years ago, he was getting arrested for performing his politically incorrect songs in public. Times have changed though and it was only three years ago (in 2010) that Kevin was deservedly nominated for Australian of the Year. As one of the country’s most prolific performers and a genuinely nice, down-to-earth bloke to boot, it’s not surprising he has earned the reputation as one of our country’s greatest living treasures.
