Williamson 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.
Australian icon John Williamson will celebrate the release of his 52nd album, 'Butcherbird', with a national tour of the same name. 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.
Williamson's 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.
John was inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame in 2010. Some of his greatest achievements include his 3 ARIA awards, 25 Golden Guitars, numerous MO awards, APRA awards, multiple Platinum and Gold albums and more than 4 million album sales.
Mallee Boy, True Blue, Fair Dinkum, or whatever you call him, there is no other performer who stirs the Aussie spirit as he does. From his roots as a man of the land, he makes people feel proud to be Australian and rightly deserves to be seen as a living legend; an Australian icon. His audiences now regularly span four generations.
John will release his new album 'Butcherbird' in August 2018 and tour Australia to sell-out shows.
