In Memory of Johnny B. Goode: World Tour 2014 - 2018

The Ghosts of Nothing are collaborating with an eclectic array of talented artists to produce a series of original mime-based interpretations of In Memory of Johnny B. Goode - A Rock Opera. Each album track is being re-staged as a single fugitive performance, presented at various locations globally, as part of a multi-year World Tour.

The first leg of the tour - "World Tour of Abandoned Music Venues - 2014/2015” - was completed in 2015. It corresponds to Act 1 of the album. It was originally advertised in the Italian art magazine
Mousse #45 (October-November 2014).

The second leg - “World Tour of Remote Wildernesses - 2015/2016” - has now also been completed. It covers Act 2 of the album. A complete list of Stage II tour dates was advertised in
Mousse #51 (December 2015-January 2016).

The third and final leg - "World Tour of Abandoned Gaol-Houses - 2016/2017" - has now been completed. It covers Act 3 of the album. Tour dates were advertised in
Mousse #55 (October - November 2016).

A thirteenth and final performance - "Johnny's Departure" - was presented on 7 July 2018, at The Lock-Up, Newcastle, Australia. This concluded the series.
