Following on from the success of his An Evening With Hoges capital city tour, the Crocodile Dundee star is bringing his one-man career retrospective to regional centres as part of a massive 25-stop jaunt that runs from one end of the country to the other.

Hogan said the experience of filming Charlie & Boots had influenced his decision to do national regional tour.

“About 30 years ago I toured the country performing with such acts as Normie Rowe and we had a blast,” he said.

“Then when I did the movie Charlie & Boots only a few years back I had the time of my life travelling throughout Australia and immediately started looking for an excuse to do it again.”

He will perform at the Lighthouse Theatre on August 30. 

Tickets went on sale yesterday.

Hogan is not the only attraction sure to attract big crowds to the Lighthouse Theatre.

Aussie hitmakers Glenn Shorrock and Brian Cadd will play at the venue tomorrow night, while Warrnambool’s own Dave Hughes will bring his latest stand-up show home on July 12.

OzOpera’s production of Mozart’s The Magic Flute arrives on July 19, music veterans The Delltones return on July 26, while the Australian Ballet’s Dancer’s Company performs a trio of renowned ballet pieces on August 4.
