John Butler Postponed

Due to the announcement of a positive COVID-19 case in Brisbane overnight, tonight’s performance by John Butler has been postponed to Saturday, 29th May.

John Butler was due to play the Empire Theatre on Saturday 13 March.

The Empire Theatres apologises for the inconvenience this last minute change will create, especially for those travelling.

 A statement from John Butlers management:

“It is with great sadness that we have to announce the postponement of tonight John Butler concerts in Toowoomba,” John said.

John Butler was due to fly into Brisbane this morning from Tasmania. However due to the announcement of the new COVID case in a Brisbane hospital, and upon advice from our COVID travel team, there is very real concern the West Australian Government will impose a hard border against Queensland in the next 48 hours.

John Butler has already undergone four weeks of quarantine this year and due to family commitments cannot consider a further two weeks at this time. He is also not prepared to put his crew members and their families through a similar risk.

We are extremely sorry about this and appreciate that many will have made travel plans around this weekend’s concerts.”


The Empire Theatres are working closely with John Butler's team to reschedule the performance to May.

Patrons are asked to retain your tickets which will be valid for the rescheduled show.

Those unable to attend the new dates will be refunded from next week.
