Birds Of Tokyo will also unveil new music as part of the performances.
Melding elements of contemporary and classical music, Birds Of Tokyo will join forces with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra for two special performances in June.
Since forming in 2004, Birds Of Tokyo have become one of Australia’s most successful contemporary acts, with a stack of hits including ‘Lanterns’, ‘Plans’, and ‘I’d Go with You Anywhere’ amongst their expansive catalogue.
Lead by Conductor Vanessa Scammell, the five-piece band will join the MSO to reimagine their discography live in concert later this year. As well as a career-spanning set of Birds Of Tokyo classics, the Perth rockers will showcase new music as part of the collaborative shows.
“We’ve wanted to do this ever since we collaborated with much smaller ensembles on our Broken Strings tour a decade ago… It’s daunting to be playing with such gifted musicians but it’s also a privilege so we really want to make the most of this opportunity,” said Birds Of Tokyo guitarist Adam Spark.
Known for their anthemic rock ballads, this is a chance to see Birds Of Tokyo strip their tracks back to their rawest form across two unmissable performances with the highly acclaimed Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
Birds Of Tokyo will perform with the MSO at Hamer Hall on Wednesday June 3 and Thursday June 4. For tickets and more information, visit the MSO website.
