Announcing: Jesse Dayton (USA) The Texas Downunder Tour 2022
Presented by Rock Solid Touring and Robot Productions
Jesse Dayton is the powerhouse guitar-slinger from Texas who delivers the outlaw and old-school country traditions of his home state, while harbouring an affinity for the spirit of full-tilt bands such as The Clash and AC/DC.
A veteran of over 30 years as a musician, Dayton has recorded and released 11 studio albums, from his Americana-chart-topping debut Raisin’ Cain, to his most recent release, Beaumonster.
Dayton is a creative tour-de-force. He is a multi-genre guitarist, singer and songwriter, film writer and director, and radio personality, and has been hiding in plain sight as a guitarist for Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Ryan Bingham and L.A. punk pioneers X, as well as touring alongside Social Distortion and The Supersuckers.
Jesse Dayton has just released his first book Beaumonster, which reads like a who’s who of American music, revealing stranger-than-fiction experiences across his wide-ranging career.
Dayton has always wanted to perform in Australia. “Some of my fav rock acts are Aussies like The Saints, AC/DC and Rose Tattoo. I mean let’s face it, Texas and Australia are both outlaw music territories.” Fans of the hard-charging Texan would know Jesse has covered AC/DC’s Whole Lotta Rosie on his recent release Mixtape Vol 1.
Jesse Dayton is being welcomed by his many fans in Australia and will be performing four dates in July 2022, culminating in a headline performance at GreazeFest in Cleveland, Queensland, on Sunday July 31.
