The MSO’s Perfect End To 2020
Not for the little ones, this program contains coarse language and adult themes. Eddie Perfect and the MSO bring musical comedy delights to life with cheeky candour as they send off 2020, the year when it felt like time ceased to exist, in unfiltered comedic style. Say bon voyage and give the year that we wish never was the middle finger in this MSO.LIVE exclusive concert hosted by Eddie Perfect. Eddie and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra are joined by an embarrassment of comedic talent, including Sammy J, Michelle Braisier, Tripod, Ali McGregor, and Christie Whelan Browne.
