Time Out says

This award-winning jazz musician is returning to Australia, stopping off in Sydney to play a one night only show

With six decades of musical innovation across jazz, hip-hop, electro-fusion, and funk under his belt, you can expect Herbie Hancock will bring nothing less than a remarkable presence to the stage.

The Chicago-born pianist and composer has an impressive history of musical accolades, winning his first Grammy in 1983, and going on to win 13 more over his career. He was a key member of the Miles Davis Quintet and has also worked alongside generations of chart-topping artists, including Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell and Kendrick Lamar.  

At his performance during Vivid, everyone will be looking forward to hearing groundbreaking hits from his twelfth studio album Head Hunters, Grammy Award-winning tribute album covering the work of Joni Mitchell, River: The Joni Letters, as well as his beloved early compositions like ‘Cantaloupe Island’ and ‘Watermelon Man’. This is your chance to see a legend in the flesh.
