John Paul Young & The Allstar Band will travel you through the decades of mega hits and John's own behind the scenes stories about the songs and their making, at a time when music was king. John Paul Young is one of the most iconic artist in Australian music's history, with over 4 million world wide album sales and numerous awards which garnered him an induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2009. In 2012 John received an Order of Australia (OAM) for his services to charity and the music industry.

From John's first release with Pasadena, in 1972, he then went on to become the un-official copresenter alongside Molly Meldrum on ABC TV's Countdown and to the present day he has been a constant presence on the live music scene, in theatre with roles in the original Jesus Christ Superstar, Shout - The Johnny O'Keefe Story, Leader of the Pack - The Ellie Greenwich Story and most recently, Grease, The Musical. A stint in radio at NEWFM Newcastle, saw him top the rating in Breakfast, Mornings and Afternoon timeslots.

The Allstar Band features two of the original members in Warren "The Pig" Morgan who cut his teeth in the original Aztecs and Ronnie "Rockwell T James" Peel, of The Missing Links and La De Das fame. Both have been with John since the beginning and have been joined over the years by Greg Plimmer, Juan Gonzalez and Michael "China" Walker and this outfit has been together since the early 80's, with Paul Kirtley (percussionist) a recent addition to the troupe.
