John Williamson The Butcherbird Tour

Australian icon John Williamson celebrates the release of his 52nd album, Butcherbird, with a national tour where he will share his latest original compositions complemented by songs from his massive back catalogue of constantly requested favourites from an amazing forty-eight-year career.

Williamson take his audience on a journey through the country, combining humour, romance, environmental issues, travelling songs and campfire stories woven together by the master storyteller’s songs.

New songs such as ‘Don’t Forget Me When I’m Gone’ and ‘Looking for a Story’ will bring his audience to tears, balanced by the humour of songs such as ‘When My Horse Came In’ and ‘Simpson Desert’. Never one to shy away from controversy or issues he’s passionate about, ‘Pigs on the River’ will be applauded. ‘Buddy and Slim’ pays tribute to the industry’s founders. It’s no wonder he is one of the most sought-after live performers in Australia.

Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does.
