Message from the promoter:
We are heartbroken to advise that Bluesfest 2020 and all the shows around it presented by Bluesfest Touring cannot proceed. As you may no doubt be aware, last night the NSW Health Minister issued a Public Health (COVID-19 Public Events) Order 2020. A copy of this Public Health Order is here. Health Ministers across the nation have done the same.
It is clear from the order that events of over 500 people are now banned.
We therefore have to take all tickets off sale. We are now working with artist representatives to see what the future holds. We are asking everyone to hold their tickets until this process is completed and we have provided further updates.
We are receiving a lot of supportive messages that are truly appreciated in this unprecedented times and we thank everyone for their continuous support. Please note that Bluesfest Touring is deeply concerned about the wellbeing of its patrons, artists and staff and everyone affected by this.
We will be in touch as soon as we have received further developments.
THIS SHOW IS STRICTLY 18+
In a world full of people hoping for a miracle, Walter Trout is a man that got one, or two. Having rebounded from near-fatal liver disease in 2013, Trout has a new lease of life and is coming back to perform with a fierier purpose.
For over five decades, Walter Trout has performed to adoring fans around the globe and is refered to as the beating heart of the modern blues-rock scene. The list of icons that have inspired Walter’s work includes BB King, John Mayall, Chuck Berry and countless more; while he himself inspired Joe Bonamassa and numerous others. Sober for three decades, his well-earned blues are leavened by his lust for life, and great taste in music.
“I owe it to the fans to play like it’s the last gig I’ll ever do” Walter Trout
