Proving You Only Live Twice, Bond is back in a star-studded sequel: bigger, bolder and brassier than before.
A hit at Brisbane Festival 2021, The Little Red Company's Skyfall: The Music of James Bond has renewed its licence to thrill in a return season at QPAC's Concert Hall for three shows on Friday 15 and Saturday 16 July 2022.
Gorgeous gowns and sharp suits abound as a heart-stopping wall of sound and jawdropping special effects combine to pay homage to agent 007, exactly 60 years since the first Bond film, Dr. No, was released in 1962.
Skyfall is sleeker than a high-speed luxury car chase and smoother than a vodka martini in a brand-new theatre experience starring Queensland's glamorous first couple of song, Naomi Price and Luke Kennedy.
The formidable double-act is joined on stage each evening by a four-piece band, an eight-piece brass section, dancers, and the "queen" of all Bond villains.
Each performance will include two special guest vocalists, with the line-up changing every show. The vocal powerhouses will breathe new life into timeless Bond classics by icons Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner and Tom Jones and recent chart-toppers by modern superstars Adele, Sam Smith and Billie Eilish.
"While each Bond artist has their distinctive sound, all of the great Bond theme songs have similar attributes: sweeping dynamic strings, a big brass section and lyrics that tackle epic themes like love, desire, separation and betrayal," Price said.
"These songs hit high notes of danger and intrigue, of seduction and suggestion, and they share a sweeping, inimitable style that sets them well apart from other movie soundtracks."
Wowing audiences with a show-stopping repertoire spanning the rock stylings of Chris Cornell to the soulful melodies of Gladys Knight, Kennedy will again don his tuxedo for a grand entrance.
"Those high-rollers who joined us for Skyfall's debut last year know we don't only shake and stir, but surprise and delight music lovers and fans of the high-octane film franchise," he said.
"Skyfall brings the grandeur and glamour of Bond to the stage and I know audiences will love the fresh and contemporary approaches to the songs and Little Red's signature cheeky modern twists to some of Bond's more outdated tropes.
Skyfall's season includes an audio described and Auslan-Interpreted performance at 3pm on Saturday, 16 July 2022.
