The Perth rock band returns to Melbourne with a symphonic twist

NB: Birds of Tokyo and the MSO announced rescheduled dates for this tour, which was initially slated for June 3 and 4, 2020. The event will now take place in January 2021. 

Cancel your 'plans' because Birds Of Tokyo have announced an upcoming tour with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.

The Perth-born band are joining up with the MSO to perform brand new music as well as Birds Of Tokyo classics reimagined with a full orchestra.

The band performed with smaller ensemble orchestras for their Broken Strings tour a decade ago. This time around they'll perform reinterpretations of their material arranged by conductor Nicholas Buc who has previously collaborated with Ben Folds, Missy Higgins and Amanda Palmer. In 2019 he worked alongside Nick Cave and Warren Ellis, arranging the duo's film scores for a brand new show with the MSO. 

The band have announced two shows at Hamer Hall on January 22 and 23.
