Venue Opens 6:30pm   –   Show time 7:30pm

From busking on the streets of Fremantle to playing packed out festivals, arenas and amphitheatres all over the globe, including Glastonbury, Big Day Out, Coachella, New Orleans and the Bryon Bay Bluesfest, this is an artist who knows how to engage an audience and keep them hooked. Two decades, eight studio albums and a swag of awards later, a John Butler beat remains instantly recognisable with tracks like “Zebra”, “Betterman” and “Better Than” firm favourites on the Australian music landscape.

Butler is kicking off a national tour with his CPAC appearances, then heading to Europe for a mammoth 29-date solo tour.

Philanthropist, environmental activist, master guitarist and so much more. This man is the goods and his live performances are something else; soulful, meaningful and powerful. Be there.

A multi – award winning and platinum selling artist, his solo career now spanning 15 years, Fanning has firmly cemented his position as one of Australia’s finest songwriters and lyricists.

From the country folk-tinged charm of his multi-platinum debut solo album Tea and Sympathy to the rock grooves and horn breaks of its follow up Departures and the exquisitely crafted Civil Dusk / Brutal Dawn – a 2 part album series released across 2016 and 2017, Fanning’s popularity and songwriting prowess continue to climb, in the charts and in our hearts.

After honing her craft and self-producing her music for years, Amy became a household name in 2016 with the release of her breakout hit, ‘Adore’. The emotive single put Amy on the map as one of Australia’s most formidable emerging songwriters and ‘Adore’ went on to achieve 5 x Platinum certification in Australia, a streaming count that surpassed 100 million and second place in the influential listener-voted 2016 Triple J Hottest 100.

Soon, the global music community came knocking, leading her to work with Blink 182’s Mark Hoppus, pop heavyweight producers Jack Antonoff and Joel Little, among others. In 2018, Amy released her debut album, Love Monster to a ravenous global audience, scoring nine nominations at the 2018 ARIA Awards and four wins, including Album Of The Year, Best Female Artist and Best Pop Release.

Fast forward to now and her national tour, in support of her highly anticipated sophomore album, Cry Forever, looms. After all the uncertainty of 2020, Amy is ready to go hard; “This is me properly hitting my stride,” she affirms. “The next chapter will define me even more than Love Monster did.”
