Roundhouse Entertainment is excited to announce that Aussie music icons JOHN BUTLER TRIO and MISSY HIGGINS will be joining forces in January and February for a massive national tour – including A Day on the Green at All Saints Estate, Rutherglen on Saturday February 9.
Billed as the Coming Home tour, the name reflects both the title of John’s imminent new album and the fact that it will finally reunite two artists whose early careers were closely intertwined.
In 2004 Missy was supporting JOHN BUTLER TRIO at Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion on the night that her debut hit Scar went to number one and a few months later they were pivotal early drivers for the “Wave Aid” tsunami benefit show at the SCG.
The pair won their first ARIA Awards as Best Male and Best Female artists in 2004 and 2005 respectively and even shared their first Rolling Stone cover together.
Since those early days, John and Missy have done numerous benefit gigs together and have stood side-by-side in several environmental campaigns but this will be their first national tour together in nearly 15 years.
For the a day on the green events, they will be joined by special guests DAN SULTAN and upcoming singer songwriter STELLA DONNELLY.
For all the national tour dates go to the artists’ websites for further information and ticketing details.
Tickets go on sale 12pm midday on Friday September 21 from Ticketmaster.
