Birds of tokyo

Birds of Tokyo, one of Australia's most successful contemporary rock bands, join forces with the MSO this January!

Conductor Vanessa Scammell will lead the five piece band and the MSO in an evening that will showcase brand new music as well as reinterpretations of signature Birds Of Tokyo classics, with arrangements by Nicholas Buc.

Formed in Perth in 2004, Birds of Tokyo have grown from independent roots to become one of Australia’s most popular contemporary rock bands. Songs like 'Good Lord', 'Two Of Us, 'Plans', 'Lanterns', 'Brace' and 'I’d Go With You Anywhere' have all been top 10 airplay hits and have lead to appearances at every major festival in this country including Falls, Splendour In The Grass and Groovin’ The Moo. In May 2020, Birds of Tokyo released new album Human Design, which debuted at #1 on the ARIA Album Chart and featured hit singles 'The Greatest Mistakes', 'Good Lord', 'Unbreakable' and 'Two Of Us'. Birds of Tokyo capped off 2020 by releasing Summer anthem 'Weekend' ahead of a run of festival shows in the band’s home state of WA. These performances with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are part of a series the band are playing, featuring four of Australia’s most prestigious Symphony Orchestras. They will showcase brand new music as well as reinterpretations of some signature Birds of Tokyo classics.

"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."
- Adam Spark, Birds Of Tokyo
