PERFORMANCE: Australian Tours by Overseas Artists 1964-75


The Yardbirds' only tour of Australia was in January 1967, as part of the "Big Show" tour with Roy Orbison and The Walker Bros. On January 26-27 the tour played Melbourne Festival Hall, supported by Johnny Young & Kompany, and The Mixtures. After the show a custom-made Gibson Les Paul (loaned to Yardbirds guitarist Jimmy Page for the tour by Keith Richards) was stolen, as well as Fender guitar belonging to Mixtures' guitarist Laurie Arthur.
