Presented by Artist Network
THE BUTCHERBIRD TOUR IN TAMWORTH
Australian icon John Williamson will return to Tamworth in 2019 to celebrate his release of his 52nd album, Butcherbird. Tamworth is always a special time for John and as always he is planning a special concert for this historic Tamworth Town Hall to kick start his 2019 touring year.
Over the next eighteen months 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.
It’s no wonder he is one of the most sought-after live performers in Australia
John takes 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. Unlike much of today’s music, John’s songs have real meaning. His new songs are no exception. The passage of time and life itself is captured in striking images. 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.
