Legendary singer Barry McGuire will unveil a major reworking of his 1965 hit Eve of Destruction when he performs in Australia next month.

McGuire has recorded the new version of Eve of Destruction with a star-studded lineup including Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) on guitar and Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac) on drums.

Maguire will perform with John York from The Byrds (Tambourine Man, Turn Turn Turn) at the Northcote Social Club in Melbourne on February 4 and at the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel in Adelaide on February 11.

In February, McGuire played in Adelaide for the first time in two decades and was a special guest on ABC TV’s pop quiz show Spicks & Specks.

In his engaging show, McGuire shares songs and touching stories that offer his audience a rare glimpse behind the scenes of the unforgettable 60s.

McGuire first appeared on the world stage in the 60s as the gravelly voiced lead singer of the New Christy Minstrels. His third hit song, Eve of Destruction, echoed around the world as the anthem for the times. It even toppled the Beatles’ Help from number one in September 1965.

McGuire was the lead singer in the original production of Hair. He was also immortalised by John Phillips in the Mamas and Papas song Creque Alley.
