Australia's undying affection for Bill Murray has been shown through film tributes the country over— at Sydney's Golden Age CinemaBrisbane's Catchment Brewing Co. and, most recently, Melbourne's Howler — but now the man himself is set to visit the country.

But the actor, comedian and all-round good guy won't be emulating Peter Venkman or Carl Spackler or even Steve Zissou — he'll be performing classical spoken and musical works alongside distinguished German–American cellist Jan Vogler.

The show's called New Worlds, which comes from an album of the same name the pair released last year. In it, Murray takes a different turn to how you my have seen him on-screen — he performs vocals to classic American music, and excerpts from American greats like Mark Twain, Walt Whitman and Ernest Hemingway. This will be accompanied by classical scores (think Bach, Schubert and Ravel) by Vogel and his ensemble.

The show will be held at the QPAC on Friday, November 16.
