Australian musician John Butler is heading to Bundaberg next week for a one-off, intimate performance at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre.
The nation's highest-selling independent artist of all time has officially returned to the live circuit, with Bundaberg on the list of the very limited number of special, intimate shows taking place around the country.
While February saw the multi-ARIA award winner land in the Apple Isle for two sold out shows in Launceston, this month will see John Butler return to the Moncrieff on Sunday, 14 March.
Having previously only performed in the region as The John Butler Trio, this will be the first time fans will have the opportunity to see John perform solo versions of his extensive back catalogue.
In this brand new live show, John will be sharing stories from the road and from his heart and playing songs which span almost a quarter of a century.
John Butler glad to make his way back to Bundaberg
He said he was looking forward to be performing again at the Moncrieff next week.
“I was there two years ago with the trio, but am really looking forward to bringing my solo show,” John said.
“When I play solo it seems to bring out so many more stories, general anecdotes and unveils so much more about the ‘bones' and history of the songs.”
John said he was really enjoying sharing his music in a new way and was genuinely excited about every single show.
“To me it seems, at the moment, the dynamic range is actually bigger,” he said.
“From fragile pin drop moments to distorted waves of guitar and vocals trying to shake your foundations free from shackles of these complex times.
“Whatever it is I’m loving bringing the music more than ever.”
The new show comes off the back of several previously announced dates, including John Butler’s stint at the SummerSalt Festival in Geraldton, Hillarys, Wollongong, Bella Vista and Darwin, and his upcoming performance at BluesFest in Byron Bay this April.
