John Butler – National Tour – Brisbane
21 May @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
After a series of border closures, last-minute postponements and unavoidable delays, Australia’s highest-selling independent artist of all time, John Butler, has officially announced the details of his forthcoming national tour this May.
Having already announced shows in Toowoomba, Bundaberg and Cairns – which have now been rescheduled for late May – the multi-ARIA award-winning artist has now unveiled plans for a series of intimate live shows in iconic theatre venues down the east coast, including Brisbane, Cairns, Gladstone, Rockhampton, Newcastle, Sydney and Melbourne, followed by a Perth and regional city tour of WA.
“I’m REALLY REALLY looking forward to this tour. It’s been a wacky ol’ year for all of us in so many ways and to be able to go out and play music for the community AND me feels like a bit of good healing. Said John Butler “When I take a look around the world and see how hard some folks are doing it at the moment this feels like a huge privilege.”
John will start in the Newcastle Civic Theatre, a long term favourite followed by his first-ever appearance at the incredible State Theatre in Sydney. This will go some way to make up for the Covid affected cancellation of the Summersalt Festival in Bella Vista. He will then wing it to Queensland where he will perform for the first time in Brisbane’s hallowed concert hall at QPAC.
On to Cairns for the first of three rescheduled shows. This will now be an outdoor concert at the stunning Munro Martin Parklands. Midweek shows will feature concerts at Gladstone Entertainment Convention Centre, Bundaberg’s Moncrieff Entertainment Centre and Rockhampton’s favourite Pilbeam Theatre, followed by the last of the rescheduled shows at The Empire Theatre, Toowoomba.
The East Coast tour will conclude at one of John’s favourite venues, The Palais Theatre in St Kilda, Melbourne, with plans afoot to film the evening for a later global broadcast for John’s international audience.
And then back to WA for a run of shows including Albany, Esperance, Kalgoorlie, Mandurah, Perth’s amazing Concert Hall, Geraldton and concluding with an outdoor concert for John’s first-ever show in Exmouth. He will be joined on all WA shows except Esperance and Kalgoorlie by very special guest Mama Kin.
In this brand new live show, John will be sharing stories from the road and from his heart and playing songs from his vast catalogue which spans almost a quarter of a century!
Tickets go on sale at 9:00 am local time on Monday 19 April 2021
