Event Details

In an event not to be missed, the legendary Herbie Hancock will perform in the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall for one night only, drawing upon his innovative, massively influential six decade career of jazz, fusion, funk, electro, hip-hop and beyond.

Few artists have exerted as much influence over the modern music landscape as Hancock. The Chicago-born, 14 time Grammy-winner’s illustrious career transcends both genre and era, from Blue Note Records prodigy and key member the Miles Davis Quintet – which redefined the shape of contemporary jazz – to his ’70s smash jazz-funk crossover with the Headhunters, and as a true pioneer and originator of electro that made him a hero of successive generations. 

Among Hancock’s innumerable contributions: his ’60s hits “Watermelon Man” and “Cantaloupe Island”, classic Blue Note albums Maiden Voyage and Speak Like A Child, playing on Miles Davis’s pioneering In a Silent Way, 1973’s funk gem Head Hunters, the ’80s electro smash “Rockit”, his Oscar-winning score for Round Midnight and soundtrack to Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow-up, and his 2007 record River: The Joni Letters, awarded the Grammy for Album of the Year. Hancock has collaborated with everyone from Chick Corea and Wayne Shorter to Stevie Wonder, Joni Mitchell and Kendrick Lamar. In 2011, he was designated a UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador.
