Pinch us, because we might be dreaming. Bill Freaking Murray, AKA the greatest legend ever to grace God’s green earth, has just announced he’ll be touring Australia this November.
The tour sounds pretty interesting actually. In classic Murray style he’s opted for something a bit stranger than a simple ‘Night With Bill Murray’ Q&A sesh. He’ll be touring with German-born classical cellist Jan Vogler, mixing Vogler’s classical music with readings from literary greats like Ernest Hemingway and Walt Whitman to create some sort of Murray-esque meta-performance.
There’ll be a small classical ensemble on stage, including Vogler’s wife, the famous violinist Mira Wang, plus pianist Vanessa Perez. The whole thing is being spruiked as a ‘spirited night of music and literature’. We might just die.
