Highwaymen Tribute Act
Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings and Kris
Kristofferson, four towering giants in the music industry.
Collectively, as THE HIGHWAYMEN, the quartet has a unique connection to
Australians that has only strengthened over the last two decades.
THE HIGHWAYMEN toured Australia in 1991 and 1995, playing Newcastle,
Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Brisbane,
attracting hundreds of thousands to their concerts and appearances and
generating an excitement rivalled only by that of The Beatles.
Now, Canadian-born international performer and producer Dail Platz - along
with Steve Taylor and award-winning Australian songwriter
and entertainer Brent Lillie – has re-created the magic that is THE
'This is a tribute in the true sense of the
word,' producer Dail Platz states.
'Putting the three-man show together, we had an almost overwhelming amount of

The Highwaymen also recorded songs by other artists like Steve Earle and Bob
Seger, and we have included a few of these in the show as well'.
Featuring acoustic and
electric guitars, banjo, fiddle and harmonica, THE HIGHWAYMEN TRIBUTE SHOW
sets new standards instrumentally and vocally.
All the Highwaymen's
great songs are included: 'Desperadoes Waiting for a Train', 'Live Forever', '
Highwayman' and many more, along with individual classics like
'Luckenbach Texas', 'On the Road Again', 'Folsom Prison Blues', 'Ring of Fire'
and 'Help me Make it Through the Night' – 40 classic songs in all.
Imagine, THE HIGHWAYMEN, plus the best of the best from four legendary artists –
that's like five shows rolled into one!
Johnny Cash Tribute
DailPlatz is Willie Nelson in his magical tribute to the versatile,
eclectic and wanderlust country music legend.
songwriter of precise elegance, Willie brought the worlds of pop and country
together in the early 1960's penning evergreen classics like
'Crazy' (Patsy Cline), 'Hello Walls (Faron Young), 'Funny How Time Slips
(Billy Walker) and 'Night Life' (Ray Price).
It all came together for Nelson with the Number One album, 'Red-Headed
His offbeat phrasing and distinctive nasal tones set a new standard for
"outlaw" country music and simultaneously made him one of country music’s
biggest-selling stars. As a unique song stylist, the bearded,
bandanna-wearing non-conformist took a number of non-country standards
and made them his own, including Elvis Presley's "You Were Always on My
and Ray Charle's' "Georgia on My Mind."
These songs, along with classics like 'On the Road Again', 'Me and Bobby
and 'Blue Eyes Crying in the Rain' are included in
Platz's mesmerising tribute to Willie Nelson.
Texans had known for 15 years what ‘Red Headed Stranger’ finally revealed to
the world: that Nelson is simply too brilliant a songwriter, interpreter,
— just too damn universal — to be defined as merely a country artist.
Platz gives his audience an insight into the world that Nelson has created,
a world so seductive that you want to linger there indefinitely.
In his tribute, Platz covers the wide range of styles Nelson embraced, which
include Latin American, Tex-Mex, Jazz, Western Swing, Blues, Traditional
Big Band and Rockabilly.
An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, Canadian born Platz criss-crossed
North America, performing in a multitude of venues before making the move to
He has performed in and produced several highly-successful tributes to
Alan Jackson, The Highwaymen and Johnny Cash.
In his Tribute to Willie Nelson, Platz has found a way
to reach into the musical soul of this iconic artist and share it with his
audience wherever he performs. J
