From a Saint, a Laughing Clown and an Aint, to leading an orchestra. See this Australian rock legend like you’ve never seen him before. Hear him as you’ve never heard him before.
In a world-first, Ed Kuepper will join Queensland Symphony Orchestra to perform spanking new orchestrations of his latest release and old favourites, which have been recomposed for this one-off show.
Following his lauded solo sojourn, Lost Cities, Kuepper will share the Tivoli stage with QSO on Saturday 25 March 2017. This is stripped back Kuepper and his guitar, with QSO illuminating his masterful songwriting and distinctive gruff vocals. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see two Queensland music icons combine.
Ed Kuepper says: “When I was a kid I always processed recordings as a kind of singular whole, so when I started to play the guitar I wanted my playing to be the entire orchestra/band rather than just the guy strumming in the corner. A good example would be the way I played Nights in Venice on the first Saints LP … or the acoustic with hyper harmonic overtones on Today Wonder. Lost Cities continues that approach but also moves into the tonal opposite of what I did when I started.”
