Chris Isaak to do good things with upcoming Rockhampton gig

COOL crooner Chris Isaak is doing a good, good thing - he's coming to Rockhampton.

The Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing singer will perform at the Great Western Hotel on Tuesday, April 2, with tickets going on sale from 9am on February 4.

As well as performing at the Blues n Roots Festivals and Bluesfest, Chris Isaak is now confirmed to perform shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Thredbo, Cairns, Townsville, Caloundra and Rocky.

Actor and musician for more than 25 years, Chris Isaak said he was more than excited to play to his Aussie fans.

"Australian audiences are the best! I think I have a show they are gonna dig! We are playing all the hits and it's really fun to throw in a whole show within the show where we play a bunch of the real early rock 'n' roll hits like Ring of Fire and Can't Help Falling In Love.

"We roll out an upright piano and a stand up bass and I think it's the most fun I've ever had on stage. I'm looking forward to surfing till soundcheck and playing all night."

Some of his biggest hits include Wicked Game, Baby Did A Bad Bad Thing, Dancin', Blue Hotel and Somebody's Crying.

For tickets go to oztix.com.au or phone 1300 762 545, and are also available from The Great Western Hotel.
