John Farnham Prepares Acoustic Album And DVD

Beloved belter John Farnham has announced an all-classics acoustic album and DVD.

The Acoustic Chapel Sessions was recorded at the legendary Melbourne venue Chapel Off Chapel in July this year.

It features Farnham performing eleven off his classics in stripped-back mode, including ‘Chain Reaction’, ‘Pressure Down’ and ‘Age Of Reason’.

There’s also an accompanying DVD with eight of the performances, interviews with Farnham and his band, as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

Farnham said in a press release “We wanted to rework some of the songs that we have been doing on stage for the last 25 years. It’s always difficult to rework something that people are very used to, having said that we have had a lot of fun doing it’.

This is a warm-up for Farnham and his band, who will perform the first half of each forthcoming 25th Anniversary of Whispering Jack shows acoustically.

The Acoustic Chapel Sessions CD and DVD package will be released on September 30.
