Sir Michael Parkinson’s farewell Australia tour is a celebration of the life and career of a man who has interviewed over 2000 of the most important cultural figures of the 20th and 21st centuries.
In conversation with his son Mike and showing highlights from the Parkinson archive, An Evening with Sir Michael Parkinson is a unique opportunity to get an intimate, informative look at his remarkable journey from the pit village in Yorkshire to the BBC with a talk show that for many defined their Saturday night.
It will also be a chance for Sir Michael to fondly remember his time in Australia and some of the fascinating colourful and engaging people he met and interviewed which cemented his love affair with the land Down Under.
You’ll see him dance with Will Smith, sing with Bing Crosby, kiss Lauren Bacall, flirt with Bette Davis, laugh with Billy Connolly, spar with Muhammad Ali, have an audience with Dame Edna Everage, marvel at Sir David Attenborough plus many, many more household names.
Don’t miss this very special farewell tour.
