James Reyne has announced today he’ll undertake a national tour from October to December this year, marking 35 years since he wrote his celebrated song, Reckless. 

The iconic musician announced the news a little early yesterday on Kennedy Molloy yesterday afternoon (catch up here).

The Reckless tour, featuring James and his band, some of the finest musicians in the country, commences on October 13 at Sydney’s Enmore Theatre before heading to Perth for two Astor Theatre shows on November 2 and 3. It will head to Melbourne’s Palais Theatre on November 24, followed by two dates at Brisbane’s Tivoli Theatre November 30 and December 1, and concluding in Adelaide at Thebarton Theatre on December 8. 

Tickets on sale to the general public from 9am, Monday April 9.

Reckless, penned by James Reyne and released by Australian Crawl on their chart-topping 1983 EP Semantics, has become a national staple.  Kicking off with these memorable lyrics; “Meet me down by the jetty landing. Where the pontoons bump and spray. I see the others reading, standing. As the Manly Ferry cuts its way to Circular Quay”, it is arguably Australian Crawl’s most popular and successful song.

James Reyne is an artist who has sold more than two million albums and written some of the most memorable Australian songs of all time. His songs have provided the soundtrack to endless Australian summers - alongside “Reckless” are such classics as “The Boys Light Up”, “Beautiful People”, “Lakeside”, “Daughters Of The Northern Coast”, “Fall Of Rome”, “Hammerhead”, “Motor’s Too Fast” and “Slave”.

James was a member of Australian Crawl for seven years, releasing four studio albums in five frenetic years in the ’80s. He’s been a solo artist for the past 28 years, releasing nine studio albums, plus two acoustic collections, a tribute album and three live albums. 

Australian Crawl sold more than one million albums in Australia, placing four albums in the Top 5, including 11 weeks at number one.
