Bill Murray Announces ‘New Worlds’ Tour
The beloved Bill Murray is making a foray into live music, having just announced a tour in support of his upcoming debut album.
New Worlds has been in development since 2013, and features the musicianship of cellist Jan Vogler, violinist Mira Wang and pianist Vanessa Perez. While they perform tunes from Bach and Schubert, Murray will read selections from Hemingway, Twain and Whitman. In addition to his spoken word numbers, he’ll also sing songs from West Side Story and Van Morrison.
The album is due out in September, but you can catch a preview on July 20 at this year’s Festival Napa Valley where Murray is scheduled to perform. His full-length tour won’t kick off until October 6 at The Granada in Santa Barbara, CA. Murray will perform at select cities throughout North America, including NYC’s Carnegie Hall on October 16. The final run of shows are slated for early December in California, though venues are still TBD.
Tickets are on sale now via the venue’s websites. Check below for more details.
