Bill Murray fans, rejoice! The comedy legend is coming to Portland.

But one caveat: he won't be here as Bill Murray the clown prince, but Bill Murray the singer.

He's playing a show at the Schnitzer auditorium Nov. 28 alongside German cellist Jan Vogler.

Murray will be belting out tunes from the musical West Side story, among others. He'll also be doing a series of literary readings accompanied to music.

We found out about this story thanks to a tweet from Oregon’s U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who sent out this photo of himself with Murray and Murray's son, Homer.
