Kevin Bloody Wilson -- Excess All Areas World Tour

Hot on the heels of a sell-out South African tour, Pacific Entertainment and Both Barrels Music is proud to present Kevin Bloody Wilson returning to New Zealand in May and June with his outrageously funny Excess All Areas World tour featuring special guest artist, Jenny Talia from Australia.

He's lauded as Australia's most unique International comedy legend with a fan base stretching from the Australian Outback to Buckingham Palace. Even peers like Billy Connolly say he's the world's funniest Australian. He's irrepressible and irreverent, but guaranteed to make you laugh with his unique brand of humour.

Always keen to reach new audiences, Kevin has asked to extend the tour into new region's where he hasn't performed before, resulting in 6 new towns on this tour.

Tickets available from Monday, April 18 @ Ticketek, TicketDirect, and Ticketmaster.

DILLIGAF, THE LIFE AND RHYMES OF KEVIN BLOODY WILSON.

The tour also dovetails the release at the end of 2010 of DILLIGAF, The Life And Rhymes Of Kevin Bloody Wilson, an autobiography co-written by Kevin and Gavin Miller. Reviewers have described the book as a raucous, earthy, in-depth look at one of the funniest and most controversial Australian entertainers of all time - a comedian who has refused to bow to the pressures of prim political correctness.

DILLIGAF is the autobiography of one of Australia's longest performing comedians, and a good yarn. Like Rodney Rude, Kevin Bloody Wilson was ostracised for his rude and crude performances back in more civilized times when you were still arrested for using most four letter words in public. Reading through this biography, it is very interesting to see the sort of things that Kevin sang and was arrested for two decades back. Today, these sorts of lyrics and words are commonplace and no longer censored on public television.

It all started innocently enough - just a guy with too much time on his hands changing the words to other people's songs, and writing a few of his own, purely for the fun of it. Twenty-five years, countless live gigs and millions of album sales down the track, Kevin Bloody Wilson has not only found his niche, he's grabbed a beer cooler and a deckchair and made himself really bloody comfortable in it! These days his recordings can be found everywhere from Outback Australia to Antarctica, from big-rig road trains to the console of Prince Charles' Aston Martin. And, remarkably, many albums have achieved platinum status with absolutely no traditional media support.

DILLIGAF (Do I Look Like I Give a F***) will catapult you on a remarkable, side-splitting roller-coaster ride alongside a unique Australian icon. If you buckle up and enjoy the journey, you won't ever want it to stop. But when it's finally over, you almost certainly will be changed forever with the positive, inspirational and pretension-hating spirit of the DILLIGAF philosophy coursing through your veins.

Wilson's autobiography is both humorous, and a lesson in the history of censorship in Australia over the last twenty five years. It is ironic that 25years ago someone that was ostracised or arrested for their particular brand of entertainment has eventually become highly sought-after by sporting and corporate Australia as a motivational speaker and nominated in 2010 as Australian of the Year - all for doing exactly the same thing! Wilson is so well regarded that he's listed in the Who's Who and his entire body of work has been preserved for future generations with the National Film and Sound Archive in Canberra.
