Three of Australia’s most captivating live bands, John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins & The Waifs, will come together exclusively for their Brisbane fans for a unique night of music under the stars.
This special concert event will take place in the picturesque surrounds of the Brisbane Riverstage on the last day in January.
Each band holds a deep mutual respect for one another and are thrilled to come together to perform on the same stage. It has been over a decade since these three artists have shared a stage together, the last time being 2005’s “Wave Aid” Tsunami Relief concert at the Sydney Cricket Ground which raised millions of dollars for the communities who suffered from the tragic Boxing Day Tsunami event in Asia.
The John Butler Trio has spent 2015 touring extensively and introducing their current album Flesh + Blood to fans around the world. This will be JBT’s last gig for Australian fans before they head back into the studio later in 2016.
Over the last decade, Missy Higgins has become one of our most beloved singer-songwriters. In September 2014, she released her fourth studio album OZ, an eclectic mix of Aussie cover versions. Missy recently announced her first tour since the birth of her baby boy earlier this year, and she will perform a select series of concerts in 2016.
With their superb 7th studio album Beautiful You receiving rave reviews, The Waifs’ recent show at The Triffid sold out. Brisbane fans who missed out get a second chance to witness the magic of Australia’s favourite folk band.
Last week both the John Butler Trio and Missy Higgins announced their own stand-alone shows for Sydney’s Taronga Zoo Twilight series – both shows sold out within minutes.
