Vivid LIVE: The Necks
Vivid LIVE is excited to host the return of Australia’s critically acclaimed improvisational trio The Necks. Beloved around the world, the avant-garde band have delivered a series of utterly mesmerising performances at the Sydney Opera House that have gone on to become the stuff of legend.
Since their 2009 festival debut, and personal invitation from curator Brian Eno to perform at his curated Luminous event, the band The New York Times called “the greatest trio on earth” have played the Joan Sutherland Theatre, the Studio, the Utzon Room, Playhouse and the Drama Theatre, thrilling audiences with their immersive, mind-bending performances. This year, they’re bringing their virtuoso live act to the Drama Theatre for one night only.
Hailed for their genre-bending mix of avant jazz, post-rock and neo-classical, Sydney’s own Chris Abrahams (piano), Tony Buck (drums) and Lloyd Swanton (double bass) have released 17 studio albums across their storied 30-year career, including the ARIA Award-winning Drive By (2003) and Chemist (2006), and their most recent, Body, praised by Pitchfork as “one of the most powerful albums in the band’s catalogue”. The band also composed the ARIA-nominated soundtrack to the cult film The Boys.
