The Inauguration

Taylor Mac


Thu 05 Oct

Arts Centre Melbourne


The commanding Mac is a genuine leader for our times.

Less an ‘abridged edition’ and more of a ‘live and unplugged,’ The Inauguration is Taylor Mac’s whistlestop tour of 240 years of American popular music in 90 minutes.

Get up close and personal in an intimate stage show featuring Mac’s five-member core band from New York, flowing freely across the centuries and alighting at their favourite moments to form a musical portrait that captures the tumultuous spirit of the country forever changing.

A window into the full marathon production peppered with Mac’s trademark social commentary and banter, The Inauguration will leave you hungry for the main course.
