When The Sopranos came to a close with perhaps the most controversial ending in television history, it left fans with plenty of questions. If you're keen to get some closure — or simply find out more about the iconic gangster series — then open up your 2019 diary: three of the show's stars are coming to Australia next year.
Touring the country between May 25 and June 1, In Conversation with The Sopranos will see Michael Imperioli, Steve Scirrippa and Vince Pastore take to the stage to chat about their time on the HBO series, including everything from behind-the-scenes stories to theories on how the eight-season show ended. That means that Sopranos aficionados can hear all of the insider details from none other than Tony Soprano's unofficial nephew, Christopher Moltisani, plus two of the mob boss' enforcers in Bobby Baccala and Big Pussy.
While the man who became synonymous with the series obviously, sadly can't be there, Imperioli, Scirrippa and Pastore will also chat about the late, great James Gandolfini — including their friendship with him both on- and off-screen, and the impact that he had on their lives and careers.
No word yet whether the trio will come out on stage to the sounds of Journey's 'Don't Stop Believin'; however they will indeed be answering attendees' questions at the end of their discussion. Tickets start at the $100 mark (give or take a dollar or two depending on the city), and if you're feeling flush with a spare $285 burning a hole in your pocket, you can also opt for the VIP package which includes a meet and greet.
In Conversation with The Sopranos tours Australia in 2019, coming to Sydney's Enmore Theatre on Saturday, May 25, The Star Casino on the Gold Coast on Sunday, May 26, Perth's Crown Theatre on Wednesday, May 29 and Melbourne's Palais Theatre on Saturday, July 1. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Tuesday, August 21, with a pre-sale from 9am on Friday, August 16 — for more information, visit the event website.
