We’re all looking forward to the return of live shows, so it’s no surprise to hear we’re thrilled that Tim Minchin is BACK!
The internationally renowned artist returns to the UK stage with more dates of his critically acclaimed BACK tour.
Award-winning comedian, actor and composer Tim Minchin has confirmed new UK dates of his BACK tour. This autumn he’s heading over the Blackpool for a show at the Opera House on Saturday 20 November 2021.
Billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, Back has a set list of material from all corners of Minchin’s eclectic – and often iconoclastic – repertoire. First performed in the UK in 2019, BACK was Tim’s first UK tour in 8 years and the 80,000 tickets sold out over a year in advance. The long-awaited return to the stage received rave reviews and saw Tim pick up a prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert.
Musician, songwriter and comedian Tim Minchin built a following that would take him worldwide.
“CBS This Morning” co-host Anthony Mason talked with Minchin about his storybook journey that’s taken him from West Australia to London’s West End (with “Matilda: The Musical”), and about his remarkable new album, “Apart Together.”
Minchin has been celebrated globally for writing the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical, which has gone on to become one of the most acclaimed musicals of the last 20 years, winning a record 7 Olivier Awards, 13 Helpmann Awards and 5 Tony Awards. He also wrote music and lyrics for the musical adaption of Groundhog Day, which after an acclaimed limited run at The Old Vic in London in 2016, debuted on Broadway in April 2017 and won the Olivier Award for Best Musical in 2017.
Since his return to stage Tim starred in the ABC comedy series Squinters and appeared as Friar Tuck in the Hollywood release of Robin Hood. He also starred in Upright, the award winning eight-part drama series which he co-wrote with The Chaser’s Chris Taylor, actor-writers Leon Ford and Kate Mulvaney.
One of our favourite ‘Minchin Moments’ was when the former UWA Arts student was awarded an honorary doctorate by The University of Western Australia.
In November 2020, Tim released his first studio solo album Apart Together. Described as “crisply observed and tenderly considered” in The Independent, the album reached #3 in the ARIA charts. On the eve of the release Tim and his band streamed a live performance of the full album to a worldwide audience and critical acclaim.
