Tim Minchin, internationally renowned award-winning musician, comedian, actor, writer and composer, has just announced his final two dates at The Star Gold Coast on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 May, bringing to a close his national tour.
Still reeling from his flawless and irreverent performance at the launch of HOTA, Home of the Arts in March of this year, Gold Coasters are certain to snap up tickets to the ‘BACK’ tour within seconds, and they’re not alone.
With a long history of sold out tours – his four recently announced Brisbane shows sold every ticket within an hour – this will be the last opportunity for fans to see Minchin perform on the Australian stage for some time.
It will be the Perth-bred artist’s first full 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 Orchestra’ in 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.
The music virtuoso also announced that a portion of the tour profits will be donated to a local charity in each city, details of which can soon be found at timminchin.com.
Tickets for these two new and final shows go on sale on Thursday 25 October 25 at 12.00pm ADST. My Live Nation members can secure tickets first during the exclusive pre-sale beginning 11.00am Wednesday 24 October until 11.00am Thursday 25 October 25.
