It was a rather fragile looking John Prine that took to the stage on Sunday night 29 July in Perth Concert Hall as part of the city’s Southern Fried Americana roots music festival writes Tom Hamilton.
John Prine took us on tour of his amazing back catalogue and he stated there are lot of words for him to get through, he joke as he forgot the lyrics a couple of times.
Though when the audience livened up and began calling for their personal favourite, he did remember to dedicate them to said heckler.
As the night ended, I couldn’t help but think, was this his last visit to these shores. Oh I hope not!
