Australia’s highest-selling independent artist of all time, guitar/roots rock legend John Butler, announces he will perform in two very special concerts in May – the first international performer to cross the border without quarantine in 12 months!
He will perform in two iconic locations, the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch on Saturday, 15 May and The Powerstation in Auckland on Sunday, 16 May. Tickets on sale this Friday, 23 April. For more information, head to www.johnbutlertrio.com
The tour announcement caps an extraordinary few years for this multi-award-winning artist who was to have headlined Bluesfest at Byron Bay last month which was ultimately cancelled due to a Covid lockdown.
The John Butler Trio’s seventh studio album HOME debuted at #1 on the ARIA Charts and was nominated for ‘Best Independent Blues & Roots Album’ at the 2019 AIR Awards.
It was a fitting accolade for Australia’s most successful independent musician with the record exploring new sonic territory with expanded instrumentation and experimentation with new genres whilst still retaining the core of the JBT sound.
