Bill Murray is coming to Brisbane – here's what you need to know

You've seen him on screen, but finally your chance has arrived to see Bill Murray live on stage when he arrives in Brisbane this November. 

Performing at QPAC for one night only, comedian and actor Bill Murray will take to the stage with world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler for their New Worlds tour.

A new tangent from his work in Hollywood, the tour came about after Murray and Vogler met while travelling. Interested in the artistic pursuits of one another, they decided to team up for a project. The result is the New Worlds album and world tour, which Murray describes as "the collision of America and Europe".

"We are from four different continents," he says of the group's four members. "And when the continents come together, the music moves right across the peninsulas from one to the other. It’s just a short journey from one continent to the other.”

The show is an exploration of music and literature that will see Murray singing on stage and performing readings from the likes of Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway. If you have seen him sing off-key on Saturday Night Live, prepare to see what the actor's really made of as he presents a new interpretation of classical scores.
