Groundhog Day 20th Anniversary Reunion Tour Kicks Off July 13th

Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Bill Murray from a scene in Groundhog Day will be participating in the 20th Anniversary party for the movie that begins July 13th in Phoenix, Arizona.

Culver City, CA — The day that would never end for Bill Murray is turning 20-years-old and the cult classic Groundhog Day is celebrating it properly with a 29-city movie reunion tour that kicks off in Phoenix, Arizona on July 13th. Included in the tour will be cast members Bill Murray, Chris Elliott, Andie MacDowell and Stephen Tobolowsky. It is unclear the exact parties they plan to attend, but if you live in any of the cities listed on the tour, the main characters from Groundhog Day might just be partying with you.

Paul Horner who is a spokesman for Sony Pictures Studios said everyone is excited about the reunion tour. “What better way to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Groundhog Day than a reunion tour visiting and partying with the same fans who made this movie as popular as it still is today,” Horner said. “Besides the fun and excitement this tour will bring it is also helping others by raising money for the March of Dimes that works to improve the health of mothers and babies.”


For those not familiar with the movie; it centers around an arrogant and egocentric Pittsburgh TV weatherman (Murray) who is reluctantly sent to cover a story about Groundhog Day. This is the fourth year in a row that he has done the story and makes no effort to hide his frustration. The following day he finds himself in a time loop, repeating the same day over and over again. Groundhog Day has been considered a tale of self-improvement which emphasizes the need to look inside oneself and realize that the only satisfaction in life comes from turning outward and concerning oneself with others rather than concentrating solely on one’s own wants and desires. According to the website Wolf Gnards, Murray’s character Phil Connors spends 8 years, 8 months and 16 days trapped in Groundhog Day.

It is not yet known the venues of the parties and where they will be held in each city. Horner told CNN that most of the parties will be at someone’s personal residence. “Any house or location interested must have a sheet or banner with the words ‘Groundhog Day Party Here’. You can also contact the hotline we have setup and inform us of a party that you will be throwing,” Horner said. “Ideas for your party can include a screening of the movie Groundhog Day, karaoke, Groundhog Day themed costumes along with plenty of food and alcohol just to name a few. Murray, Elliott, MacDowell and Tobolowsky will be signing autographs and just hanging out with guests so please make your party as comfortable as possible for them.”

The odd moment of the press conference came when 27-year-old Eli Kluger from Phoenix, Arizona told reporters he thought Rick Moranis was in Groundhog Day. “Wasn’t Rick Moranis in Groundhog Day, or am I thinking of another movie?” That is when all the reporters in attendance laughed and pointed at him for being stupid or attempting to be funny.

The Groundhog Day Movie Reunion Tour kicks off July 13th in Phoenix, Arizona and will end September 14th in Austin, Texas. For a complete list of dates and locations of this tour, click here. For more information please call the 24-hour Groundhog Day Movie Reunion Tour Hotline at (310) 244-4000.

Bill Murray Announces Party Crashing Tour

Bill Murray party crashing tourNew York, NY — Known to crash parties all over the New York City area, Bill Murray will soon be giving the rest of the country the same treatment. It’s unclear the exact parties that he will be attending, but if you live in any of the cities that he plans to crash, Bill Murray might just be partying with you.

Mr. Murray did not speak to reporters but did have his agent Paul Horner answer some of their questions and make a few statements. “Mr. Murray is looking to take a vacation around the United States. He’s hoping that if he shows up to your party with a bottle of wine or vegetable tray, you will be able to make the proper accommodations for him. This includes allowing him to sleep on your couch or in a spare bedroom, both of those options being completely acceptable.”

“Oh heck yeah Bill Murray can party with us,” said 30-year-old Dean Huls, a long-time fan of Bill Murray. “If he crashes our party he can sleep in our room that night and I’ll sleep with my wife on the couch that folds out in the living room. Or Bill Murray can sleep with my wife, it’s all good, just as long as he comes to my party.”

Horner continued to explain some of the conditions of the tour to reporters. “All we ask is that if Mr. Murray does decide to crash your party, please give him his space. He’s a human being, just like you and me. He’s just looking for a good time and a fun way to connect with fans.” Horner then went on to explain more details about the tour, “At these parties, Mr. Murray does not want to be called ‘Bill Murray’ but instead wants to be referred to as ‘Keyser Söze’. Activities that Mr. Murray enjoys are drinking and karaoke. Having those two things at your party will definitely increase your chances of him making an appearance. Also it is extremely important that any house or location interested in participating have a sheet or banner of some kind attached to their establishment the night of the party. It must say in big bold letters, ‘BILL MURRAY CAN CRASH HERE’. This will let Mr. Murray know at what locations he is welcome.”

The Bill Murray Party Crashing Tour will kick off August 1st in Phoenix, Arizona and will end September 10th in Austin, Texas. For a complete list of dates and locations of this tour, click here. For more information please call the 24 hour Bill Murray Party Crashing Tour Hotline.

Some people in certain cities are reporting this tour as a hoax. I think that’s just because they are worried about all the extra alcohol and karaoke machines that will need to be made available, plus the additional police that might be required. This is all a small price to pay when you’re looking at the possibility of partying with Bill, f*cking, Murray.

This Bill Murray tour will happen, or worst case scenario… a bunch of people get together in different cities around the country, get drunk, sing karaoke and show their love for a living legend.
