John Butler Trio Announce Queensland Tour
Earlier this year John Butler returned to his roots performing a series of solo concerts across the country. Aptly titled “Tin Shed Tales”, the tour was a huge success and a rare opportunity to hear the music of this iconic artist in a raw and intimate setting. John Butler is pleased to announce he will be bringing his Tin Shed to Mackay, Townsville and Bundaberg this September/October.
The incredible recreated Tin Shed setting making its way to North Queensland creates the perfect atmosphere for a unique show up close and personal with his fans. Decked out with a collection of personal art pieces, vintage skateboards and vintage guitars, these items are laid out in his shed at home where he draws inspiration for his art and songwriting.
In December last year John decided to put on a surprise concert for his fans in Perth. The unplugged acoustic show was announced a day before the performance and with only 300 seats available it sold out in under seven minutes. He shared many anecdotes with the audience and performed songs from his vast catalogue spanning across all five albums. Thus the “Tin Shed Tales” concept came to life.
The Tin Shed Tales North Queensland tour will feature special guest Mia Dyson who will open and participate in the shows.
John will unveil some brand new songs alongside tracks from his extensive catalogue on the “Tin Shed Tales” tour. Fans can now relive this live experience with a recently released double live CD from shows recorded in Western Australia during the earlier tour this year, the CD will be on sale at shows.
Don’t miss the opportunity to catch the most intimate performance this versatile artist has ever undertaken. It will be a unique experience for any music lover.
