Known for their phenomenal live shows and never ending energy, John Butler Trio are proud to announce their first live DVD & CD to be released since 2005’s ‘Live At St. Gallen’. Filmed at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre based in Colorado this encompasses everything fans love about JBT. Performing to an 8,000 strong crowd John Butler, Nicky Bomba and Byron Luiters were elated to be given the chance to play at such a renowned venue. JBT are the most successful artists in Australia, their passion and popularity has spread across the globe resulting in 1.6 million record sales worldwide.
“We’ve opened up for so many artists at Red Rocks over the years and to headline this sublimely majestic and sacred venue was a massive milestone for us. As an Australian band, it’s hard to explain what it feels like to pull off a gig like this, we played hard and fast like our lives depended on it. We gave it everything we had and everything this special place and it’s people deserved.” John Butler
The mind-blowing concert showcases a two and a half hour performance from JBT including footage that features live dancers acting out traditional American dances. The DVD also includes behind the scenes interviews as well as the official video clip for ‘Revolution’ taken from JBT’s highly acclaimed album ‘April Uprising’ which was released in April last year. ‘Live At Red Rocks’ features twenty songs spanning JBT’s entire repertoire, highlights being Ocean, Better Than, Funky Night and Close To You.
Harnessing the incredibly genuine and heartfelt live show that JBT deliver is no easy feat but the ‘Live At Red Rocks’ box set gives you a small piece of the JBT live experience to keep.
