First Irish show in over 10 years by one of the most influential artists of the last century.
The living legend that is Herbie Hancock returns to Ireland for the first time in over a decade in August next year. One of the most influential and revered artists globally of the last century, he has won some 14 Grammy awards across the six decades of his musical career. Having recently celebrated his 81st birthday, Herbie will take an all-star band with him for a very special show in the intimate surroundings of National Concert Hall in Dublin.
Now in the sixth decade of his professional life, Herbie Hancock remains where he has always been: at the forefront of world culture, technology, business and music. In addition to being recognized as a legendary pianist and composer, Herbie Hancock has been an integral part of every popular music movement since the 1960’s. As a member of the Miles Davis Quintet that pioneered a groundbreaking sound in jazz, he also developed new approaches on his own recordings, followed by his work in the 70s – with record-breaking albums such as “Headhunters” – that combined electric jazz with funk and rock in an innovative style that continues to influence contemporary music. “Rockit” and “Future Shock” marked Hancock’s foray into electronic dance sounds; during the same period, he also continued to work in an acoustic setting with V.S.O.P., which included ex-Miles Davis bandmates Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter and Tony Williams.
