 Birds of Tokyo and Queensland Symphony Orchestra present “Birdsongs”

8 & 9 September, Concert Hall, QPAC

Australia’s most successful contemporary rock band, Birds of Tokyo is teaming up with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra (QSO) for an electrifying concert experience called “Birdsongs”, part of a national tour with Australia’s orchestras.

Fans will be able to enjoy the soaring melodies and raw energy of classic anthems like "Plans", "Lanterns", “Good Lord” and "Anchor", alongside some new works, all reimagined with stunning arrangements by acclaimed orchestrator and conductor, Nicholas Buc.

The tour will weave around Australia during August and September, visiting the country’s most prestigious live venues, coming to Brisbane’s Concert Hall at QPAC on 8 and 9 September as part of Brisbane Festival.

Birds of Tokyo have captured the hearts of music fans with three chart-topping albums and multiple appearances on iconic events like the AFL Grand Final while also winning APRA’s ‘Rock Work of the Year’ an extraordinary seven times. But it's their concerts that truly set them apart - from explosive energy to spine-tingling moments of intimacy, Birds of Tokyo are captivating live performers whose sweeping and dynamic songs are ideally suited to orchestral interpretations.

“Birdsongs” is not the band’s first collaboration with orchestras – they last performed with QSI in 2020 - but it marks the first time that all major Australian orchestras have been able to stage the tour over one month.

“We are beyond excited to be working with all of Australia’s finest musicians like this,” said Birds of Tokyo founding member, Adam Spark. “It’s like a dream come true for us and we can’t wait to create something really special together.”
