John Otway, micro-star, “rock and roll’s greatest failure”, and subject of a recent Cannes premiered movie, is thinking about a trip to Aus. As a fan, (and friend,) of his I’m trying to get him to play Canberra. But never having been involved in something like this, how does one go about arranging a gig? Which venue is suitable (my first thought, seeing as it would probably be a solo gig, was Tilley’s.) Any help or information that could be offered at this formative stage would be most welcomed.
John Otway, (born 2 October 1952, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England) is an English singer-songwriter who has built a sizeable cult audience through extensive touring, a surreal sense of humour and a self-deprecating underdog persona.
