John Butler Trio for Gibbston gig


Aussie roots legends the John Butler Trio will headline next year’s Summer Vineyard Tour, being staged at Peregrine Wines in Gibbston. 

The group – famed for hits like Zebra and Something’s Gotta Give – will be joined at the open-air Wakatipu spectacular on February 9 by American soul star Aloe Blacc & the Grand Scheme. 

Blacc, from California, is best known for his worldwide smash I Need A Dollar. He is expected to be a major drawcard after selling out his New Zealand tour earlier this year and hitting the NZ Top 40. 

The John Butler Trio return to NZ shores fresh from the success of their limited edition box set album Live At Red Rocks

Kiwi pop sweetheart Annabel Fay, who has recently been going down a storm in the United States, will complete the international gig lineup.
