Country music star Lee
Kernaghan is returning to
Canberra for his first club
show in more than 10 years.
On the 2011 Pubs, Clubs and
Carparks Australian Tour, Kernagh-
an has added an extra date to play
in Canberra at the Vikings Club
Erindale on Saturday, October 15.
The tour has focused on many
towns Kernaghan didn't include in
his last tour.
''I just wanted to get back to the
kind of venues I used to play when
my career began,'' he said.
''As time went by the venues
became bigger and normally it
was theatres we went into.
''The whole idea of this Pubs,
Clubs and Carparks Tour is to break
the normal cycle of touring and
take our show into unusual loca-
tions that are not a part of the
regular touring circuit or places we
have not visited in a long time.''
Kernaghan said while the thea-
tres have been fantastic, he wanted
a more relaxed party environment
on this tour.
''I love Canberra and you get a
lot of people who come in from out
of town and you can be assured
that there will be a lot of utes and
four-wheel drives at the club,'' he
Kernaghan has toured solidly for
the past two years, and said he likes
being on the road.
''The great thing about being on
the road is it's where my inspiration
for my music comes from,'' he said.
Kernaghan said touring allows
him to gauge what's happening in
Australia and what people are
''It's often the odd story or yarn or
turn of phrase that I get that be-
comes a song and sometimes a
hit,'' he said.
Kernaghan is supported on his
tour by Markus Meier, as well as his
sister Tania Kernaghan.
''It's something that started back
when we were just little kids and
formed our first band with Tania and
my brother Greg,'' he said. ''We've
been singing and playing together
for all our lives and it's in our blood.''
While his sister is joining him on
the road, Kernaghan said the band
has also become his family after
playing and touring with most of the
members for 15 years. While his
band hasn't changed much
throughout his career, Kernaghan's
approach to touring and perform-
''Back in the 90s it was about
partying at every show,'' he said.
''I really enjoy it these days and I
try and hit the gym at each town
that we play or go for a run,
because staying fit on the road
enables me to do a better show.''
While he is behaving himself up
to a point, he ''still likes to let loose''
every now and then.
Crowds at his Canberra show
can expect plenty of old favourites,
because Kernaghan has recently
released an Ultimate Hits album.
''It's 42 tracks that were sort of
handpicked with the help of a lot of
Facebook fans,'' he said.
''It was a real insight into the
songs that had really sort of pulled
on people's heart strings or affected
them in a way that they said it had
to be on the record.''
