Following the release of yet another Australian #1 album, Australian rock/roots group John Butler Trio announce their return to New Zealand in March to play an afternoon set outdoors at The Hunting Lodge Winery & Restaurant in Waimauku, Auckland on Sunday 3 March.

The show is all ages and will be supersized with the stellar support line up of one of NZ’s hottest live acts L.A.B, and the legendary Trinity Roots. John Butler Trio will play all their hits, and introduce Kiwi fans to music from the brand new album Home. 

Tickets on sale 7am Monday October 29 from Eventfinda NZ. Limited discounted earlybird and under 18 tickets available. Limited VIP tickets available, featuring a priority Entry Queue, private bar & bathroom area & private coat/bag check.

John Butler is Australia’s most successful independent artist, with countless accolades including four APRA Awards and six ARIAs across 20 years of songwriting. His band will arrive in New Zealand on the tail of a 14-date album release tour across Australia, including two dates on the Sydney Opera House Forecourt.

Home is a particularly personal record for the group’s frontman, John Butler, who wrote: 
“Songs about family life, love, what it means to be a modern man and personal insights into dealing with my anxious projections. Songs have always been my friends. No matter what I’m going through they help me convey the things my heart feels but my brain is too afraid to say.” 

Joining on support will be L.A.B and TrinityRoots. Fast becoming a favourite on the live scene, L.A.B. is the latest project from Brad & Stu Kora, Ara Adams-Tamatea and Joel Shadbolt. Nominated for Breakthrough Artist at the 2018 Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards, the band are set to release their second album in late 2018, following on from the release of their debut album just over a year ago. Joining the bill on both shows is TrinityRoots, celebrating 20 years as one of NZ’s most influential groups. Following on from a sold-out run of theatre shows across NZ, these performances will showcase their classics, along with new material.

This is a live show that is guaranteed to entertain, as an Australian music icon takes the stage with support from some of New Zealand’s finest musicians. Don’t miss out.
