Beloved American actor, comedian and writer Bill Murray (Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation) has announced he will tour Sydney with German-born classical cellist Jan Vogler and “friends” in November.

The show, called New Worlds, is based on Murray and Vogler’s 2017 album release of the same name, which mixes classical music (Ravel, Schubert, Saint-Saëns and Bach) with writing from American greats including Ernest Hemingway and Walt Whitman. The show came about after a chance meeting in an airport security line between Murray and Vogler. Murray describes it as “the collision of America and Europe.”

The ensemble also includes Vogler’s wife, renowned violinist Mira Wang, and pianist Vanessa Perez.
