Aussie larrikin Kevin Bloody Wilson has announced a very special show for Queensland audiences – his one-night-only Kev’s Krissmas Live, where all your Christmas dreams come true. Featuring classic festive hits such as He Only Comes Once A Year, Ho Ho **** Ho, Roo Dog The Wet Nose Crossbreed, Amazing Grass and new songs like Silent Wife, Dingle Berries, Go Tell It To A Mountain Goat, Santa Clause Was Goin’ To Town and Away With A Stranger, audiences are in for a hilarious start to the Christmas season.
Politically incorrect from start to finish, Kevin Bloody Wilson is idolised around Australia – and the world – for his unique take on life. He embodies the spirit of Australian humour, and any evening in his company will leave your sides aching from laughter. Throughout his career, Kev has performed everywhere, from outback pubs to the hallowed halls of the London Palladium, packing out houses wherever he goes. He can read an audience and knows exactly the right way to get everyone involved – and laughing – from the outset.
Kev’s Krissmas Live will not only feature all his revered festive-themed songs, but also hits from his extensive back catalogue, such as fan favourites like D.I.L.L.I.G.A.F, Dick’taphone, 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). Kev released his first Christmas-themed album, the aptly titled Kev’s Krissmas in 1996. This year marks the release of ‘Another Kevin Bloody Wilson Krissmas Album’ Kev’s Krissmas Vol. 2.
Kevin Bloody Wilson’s story is one of legend. 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 more than three decades and Kev is a household name throughout Australia and the world. It is hard to believe that it was only 30 or so years ago that he was getting arrested for performing his politically incorrect songs in public. Times have changed though, and Kev even now spots a nomination for Australian of the Year (nominated in 2010). 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.
With many of his songs pushing the boundaries, Kevin Bloody Wilson has earned his place in the entertainment industry without a lot of mainstream media support. His record sales are now nudging the four million mark. All of his CDs and DVDs have achieved gold status globally, with many reaching platinum. In fact one album, Kev’s Back, hit quadruple platinum. His recordings can be found all over the world, from outback Australia to Canada. His music has also been preserved for generations to come in the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra. He has sold-out shows around the world and is constantly earning new fans, who are envious of his DILLIGAF attitude.
