With John Butler's one-off Tasmanian show a sell out, a second show has been added to satisfy the demand.
Butler, a multi-ARIA award winner, will now come to Launceston and perform two solo shows instead of one in February.

During the live shows Butler will share stories from the road and his heart, and will play songs from his work which spans almost a quarter of a century.
The performances will have a mix of the musician's older work combined with music from the new album.
Butler said he had missed playing live music during the pandemic.
"I always love making music live, it's where is started and probably where I will finish," he said.
"I think things like the gig selling out in an hour just shows you how much love there is for the music."
Butler said the storytelling that occurs during the show happens naturally when he plays solo, because it's much more intimate.
"I love the [John Butler Trio] and getting on stage and doing the blast your face off thing, but then doing this [too] which is raw and intimate.
"What you get is 110 per cent effort, and me.
"No fancy frills."
Last year was a mixed one for the artist, who spent much of the time looking after his father before he died.
"It was a hard year, but COVID was a bit of a blessing in that I wasn't somewhere else [on tour]," he said.
"I also built a studio at home over the last year so I had a lot of recording time."
The second show will be held at the Princess Theatre in Launceston on February 17 at 8pm.
