UPDATE: John Butler has set a new date for his Bundaberg show, now performing at the Moncrieff Entertainment Centre on 26 May after his March show was cancelled.
Anyone with an existing ticket will have their tickets and selected seats transferred to the new date on Wednesday 26 May at 8 pm, or will be offered a refund if this date does not suit.
There are still tickets left for the show which are available from the Moncrieff box office.
EARLIER: John Butler has postponed his Bundaberg performance set for tomorrow night on advice from his travel team following the announcement of a new COVID-19 case in Brisbane.
The singer has issued a statement to fans, with hopes to still deliver the performance in May.
“It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of tonight and tomorrow night’s John Butler concerts in Toowoomba and Bundaberg,” a statement said.
He was due to play the Empire Theatre in Toowoomba this evening and The Moncrieff Entertainment Centre in Bundaberg tomorrow evening, Sunday 14 March.
“John Butler was due to fly into Brisbane this morning from Tasmania,” the statement said.
“However due to the announcement of the new COVID case in the Brisbane hospital, and upon advice from our COVID travel team, there is very real concern the West Australian Government will impose a hard border against Queensland in the next 48 hours.
“John Butler has already undergone four weeks of quarantine this year and due to family commitments cannot consider a further two weeks at this time.
“He is also not prepared to put his crew members and their families through a similar risk.
“We are extremely sorry about this and appreciate that many will have made travel plans around this weekend’s concerts.
“We are working closely with both venues to reschedule both concerts to May.
“These new dates will be confirmed soon.
“Please retain your tickets which will be valid for the rescheduled shows.
“If you are unable to attend the new dates, refunds will be available from the point of purchase.”
