Bill Murray will bring his New Worlds album on the road this year when he performs a series of shows in the United States and beyond with cellist Jan Vogler, violinist Mira Wang, and pianist Vanessa Perez. Released in 2017, the famed comedian and actor’s debut album is a collection of classical compositions and literary readings. The record includes selections from European composers such as Franz Schubert, Johann Sebastian Bach, and Maurice Ravel as well as beloved American songwriters like George Gershwin, Leonard Bernstein, and Henry Mancini. Many of the tunes are combined with readings from iconic works of literature like Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself. Murray and his crew will get started on March 2nd in Bacon Raton, Florida, before swinging through parts of the South, East Coast, and Midwest. They will then hop around the world for a run of dates in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. These performances will mark Murray’s first concerts since the group made its debut in Germany last summer at Dresden Music Festival and followed it up with a fall run in the U.S. that included an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.New Worlds on The Late Show with Stephen ColbertTickets for most of the shows are now on sale via the project’s website.

The US Port of Seattle has issued a request for qualifications (RFQ) to secure a partner that will develop and operate a new, single berth cruise facility at Terminal 46.In addition, the port has adopted principles to ensure that a growing cruise business increases local economic benefit and maintains the port’s leadership as the most environmentally progressive cruise homeport in North America.“Our principles ensure that this new cruise terminal will expand local economic benefit, and with the addition of our third shore power berth will make Seattle the national leader in promoting clean, electric shore power for our Alaska-bound cruises,” Port of Seattle Commission President Stephanie Bowman said.The cruise terminal RFQ is the first step in a partnership selection process that will support the completion of a new facility for the 2022 cruise season.Early estimates are that a cruise terminal could be constructed for around USD 200 million. A public-private-partnership approach to build the terminal will have the port contributing half that cost. Responses to the RFQ are due April 18.The opportunity to explore using 29 acres at the north end of Terminal 46 for a new cruise terminal and single berth has come forward now as the Northwest Seaport Alliance works to realize its strategic plan of realigning international maritime cargo operations at Terminal 5 near West Seattle and Terminal 18 on Harbor Island. The cruise terminal project is contingent on the successful authorization of a new lease at Terminal 5 which is scheduled for review at the Northwest Seaport Alliance’s March 19 meeting.This year, the port celebrates 20 years of service as a cruise homeport. Since 1999, the Port of Seattle has become the US West Coast’s premier cruise port for Alaska cruises. In 2019, Seattle’s cruise industry will serve more than 1 million revenue passengers for the third year in a row.The Port of Seattle is said to be the most environmentally progressive cruise homeport in North America, with the first cruise homeport in the United States with two shorepower berths, and may be the only cruise homeport in the United States with three shorepower berths when Terminal 46 is completed.Seattle is also the first and only cruise homeport in North America with a voluntary clean water agreement between cruise lines and regulators. Emissions from ocean-going vessels, including cruise ships entering Puget Sound, have decreased by more than 67 percent over the last 10 years.
