  • Corner of Market & King Edward St, Cohuna

FURTHER DETAILS

As we drove into town we were greeted by huge signs:
THANKS JACK and JACK IS BACK.

The town was covered from top to bottom in yellow balloons and ribbons and almost every window displayed some sort of memorabilia and Farnham music was playing on loud speakers through the main street. I thought I had arrived in Farnham-ville!

The stage was on the corner of Market & King Edward St, next to the Cohuna Memorial Hall where on 29th April, 1967, Darryl Sambell had approached John about becoming his manager. Fans drove from outlying country areas and interstate arriving as early as 6.30 am.

John appeared on stage at 2.15pm and he and the band performed 15 songs, including three from his latest album, The Last Time, to a crowd of more than 5000 appreciative fans.

After the concert there was a party in the park and the night was capped off with a performance by Strings Unlimited and a fireworks show. It was Farnham mania at its best!
