Young Hearts Run Free
One of the greatest movie soundtracks of all time becomes a masquerade rock show.
It's been more than two decades since Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet changed the game when it came to screen adaptations of Shakespeare — and delivered a stunning soundtrack along with it. There are many things that make the 1996 movie great, from its stellar casting to the filmmaker's inimitable style. But tracks by everyone from The Cardigans to Radiohead to Everclear to Garbage rank right up there with its biggest strengths.
It's no wonder, then, that The Tivoli is throwing quite the soiree to celebrate one of the best-ever collections of movie tunes. If you missed the same shindig at Brisbane Festival a few years back, don't make the same mistake again.
At Young Hearts Run Free, the venue will become a rock masquerade, with patrons dressing up, dancing the night away, and listening to live performances of the entire soundtrack — with Tom Dickins leading the charge, as joined by other musicians and special guest performers. The full lineup is yet to be revealed, but prepare for quite the star-crossed night come Saturday, December 21.
