Sam Buckingham’s DEAR JOHN Tour is back, by popular demand.

Since releasing her 2022 album, Buckingham has graced main stages at Woodford and Queenscliff Music Festivals, embarked on a six week tour with the Festival of Small Halls, and headlined a sold out 34 date national tour to celebrate the album’s release.

She’s also toured alongside Kate Miller-Heidke, Paul Kelly, Katie Noonan, Tim Freedman, The Whitlams and Ben Lee. 

Now she’ll share the album in sit down, acoustic mode - and add in a handful of new songs that haven’t yet been released. Sam refers to it as the “Life After John” tour.

DEAR JOHN debuted at #2 on the AIR Independent Album Charts, and was created after the dramatic ending of a toxic relationship.

"The breakup was what started me writing these songs but, in the end, the songs aren't really about the relationship at all. This album documents my process of healing, learning and rising up to become the woman I want to be. These are my stories and it's important to share them... because I know they're other people's stories too.”

Expect storytelling, expertly crafted songwriting, and a show that will leave you feeling bigger on the inside. 

Book early - these shows have been selling out!
