For the second time in their career John Butler Trio will bring its world renowned show to Red Rocks as the headliner on August 12. In the summer of 2009, John Butler proudly announced the new line up of the ever evolving John Butler Trio. Prominent Melbourne musician Nicky Bomba (drums and percussion) of 'Bomba' fame and principal drummer on 'Sunrise Over Sea' joined the band and bass player Bryon Luitters from Sydney outfit 'Ray Mann Three' completed the new line up. Having spent the majority of 2009 bunkered down in his Fremantle studio with his new band mates putting down tracks for their forthcoming fifth studio album entitled 'April Uprising', John Butler is pleased to announce fans will get their long awaited live JBT hit when the band perform throughout the world early in 2010.
The new album title 'April Uprising' came from an incredible journey John undertook for the 'Who Do You Think You Are' TV series. He traces the Butler name through generations of hardship to a matriarch who sang for her survival and follows his Bulgarian ancestry to a forebear caught up in a violent revolt called the April Uprising. 'April Uprising', featuring the single "One Way Road" (available now at itunes), is set for April 6 release date.
With sold out performances over the past two years across the globe John Butler Trio have reaffirmed their show's status as one of the premier live concert events. Butler says,"Our first headline at Red Rocks with State radio and the legendary Medeski Martin And Wood is gonna be sublime and for us is a total dream come true."seated balcony or GA standing room only on the floor.
