Huge news!

Farnsey is back! The rumours are true. And he is on his way to Hobart!!!

From The Age:

Australian music legend John Farnham has announced he's making a musical comeback with a national tour later in the year.

"I'm tired of being retired," Farnham, 59, said as he made the announcement at Sydney's Lyric Theatre.

Farnham said he was inspired to get back into the business after performing his hit You're The Voice with Coldplay at the Sydney Sound Relief concert this year.

"When I walked off stage I was two foot taller," he said.

Farnham also plans to work on an album of new songs.

"The difficulty is finding grown-up songs - I don't want to sing 'ooh baby'," he said.

"I'm not going to hurry this."

His tour called John Farnham Live By Demand will kick off in Sydney on September 3 before going to the Hunter Valley, Hobart, Brisbane, Perth, The Barossa Valley and Melbourne.

Farnham has been in retirement since 2007, after performing live at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony in Melbourne in 2006.

Speculation surrounding the singer's retirement has circulated since 2002 when he announced his Last Time tour.

A disgruntled fan who had purchased tickets for the tour lodged a complaint with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission after Farnham announced he would tour again, with singer Tom Jones in 2005.

The consumer watchdog decided not to take action.

Lack of birthday presents

As I have always viewed frugality as a one-way street, I have been very disappointed with the lack of presents so far. Hopefully they are in the mail.
