Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain Aussie Tour

The world’s oldest and most famous Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain is set to unite fans in celebration of “the instrument bought for loose change” early next year, with their first trip to Australian shores.



Bringing only their 'bonsai guitars', and the belief that all musical genres are available for reinterpretation (as long as they are played on the uke!), the Ukelele Orchestra does away with drums, piano, backing tracks, pitch shifters and electronic trickery. With a virtuosic collision of raw post-punk performance and toe-tapping oldies - from Tchaikovsky to Nirvana via Otis Redding and Spaghetti Western soundtracks - the Orchestra is routinely met with standing ovations.

Modern exercise in minimal art? Or a rabble-rousing music hall/stadium rock experience? Either way, you'll never think about music in the same way.

Described by Monty Python’s Michael Palin as “absolutely the best of British”, the Orchestra’s shows are simple, hilarious and highly skilled. The Orchestra has received rave reviews from critics all over the world including New York Times and Sunday Times, as well as music icons, David Bowie and Brian Eno.

"Plucking brilliant." Sunday Times

"The best musical entertainment in the country...worth travelling a thousand miles to hear." The Independent
