Shannon Noll To Continue Tour Despite Strip Club Arrest
Shannon Noll's upcoming tour dates will go ahead, despite his arrest for an alleged assault outside an Adelaide strip club at the weekend.
The 41-year-old singer had performed at the Sounds By The River concert alongside John Farnham in Mannum, east of Adelaide, on Saturday but was arrested in the early hours of Sunday morning outside the Crazy Horse Revue.
He was reportedly removed from the club by security guards and later charged with two counts of assault.
His manager says the singer plans to go ahead with all his upcoming gigs, including the Tamworth Music Festival and 14 more dates around the country as part of the Red Hot Summer tour.
"All of Shannon's tour dates are going ahead as planned. He is looking forward to all upcoming show dates," Noll's manager told AAP on Monday.
The Australian Idol runner-up has been enjoying a career resurgence of late, over a decade on from his appearance on the TV talent show.
An online campaign in 2016 to send Noll to the Eurovision to represent his homeland went viral and led to him earning a place on the Australian jury.
Noll, whose fifth studio album is due for release this year, will be performing on the Red Hot Summer tour supporting Farnham and legendary band Icehouse until April.
His headline gig at the Tamworth Country Music Festival, alongside The Wolfe Brothers, is set for January 25.
"It is all systems go. Shannon's show with Wolfe Brothers is still going ahead and the word from his manager is that Shannon is looking forward to coming and performing in Tamworth," a spokesperson for the music festival told AAP.
Noll is due to face Adelaide Magistrates Court in February.
