Press shot of Tim Minchin

About

Tim Minchin is Back - returning to the stage with the blend of songs and stand up that made him famous.

'Back' is billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, 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 Minchin’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 the comic pick up a prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert.

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 Minchin 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, and co-produced with Lingo Pictures for Foxtel and Sky UK.

In November 2020, Minchin 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, Minchin and his band streamed a live performance of the full album to a worldwide audience and critical acclaim.

You can add a Pre-Show Comedy & Curry or Hospitality package when you book your tickets, or add at any time up to 24 hours in advance, subject to availability.
