1) Bill Murray LIVE!
9th & 10th November
The legendary actor and comedian Bill Murray, and world renowned Cellist Jan Vogler are bringing their ‘New Worlds’ tour to Australia and New Zealand this November. The two met during their travels and became friends in New York. Curious about each others artistic world and interests, the actor and the cellist soon had the idea to work together on a project. A program that showcases the core of the American values in literature and music. A show that communicates the bridges artists have built between America and Europe. Twain, Hemingway, Whitman, Cooper, Bernstein, Gershwin and Foster are some of the strongest voices that influenced generations of humans in America and gave the world a picture of the charm, energy and creative force of the ‘New Worlds’.
