About the Show
It will be the Perth-bred artist’s first Australian tour since returning to the country after more than a decade living overseas and the long-awaited follow up to his consecutive sold-out national tours of Tim Minchin Vs the Orchestrain 2011 and 2012.
BACK is billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, hinting at a set list of material from all corners of Minchin’s eclectic – and often iconoclastic – repertoire.
“Not only is Tim Minchin outrageously funny, he is also a beautiful singer and pianist. His piano solos are enough on their own to warrant the entry price.” The Daily Telegraph
“DON’T GUSH. Whatever you do, don’t gush. Ahhh – bugger it. Tim Minchin is an ungodly angel of hellfire and mirth. He is the impish love child of Animal, the Muppet, and Bill Nighy, brought up on a diet of Carl Sa-gan and Christopher Hitchens. And Ben Folds Five and Monty Python. If you’re unfamiliar with this Perth-boy-gone-global, familiarise yourself now.” The Adelaide Advertiser
“Minchin has enormous presence, a superior handle on self-deprecation, brilliant timing and an inexhaustible armoury of withering looks.” Courier Mail, Brisbane
