With a long history of sold-out tours, Tim Minchin wants fans to be given priority access to tickets so is teaming up with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan © registration.
Internationally renowned award-winning musician, Tim Minchin, is bringing BACK to New Zealand!
The tour, aptly titled BACK, will head to ASB Theatre, Auckland on Sunday 14th April 2019 and then to Michael Fowler Centre, Wellington on Thursday 18th April 2019
It’s the Perth-bred artist’s first Australia and New Zealand tour after more than a decade living overseas. Billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, the setlist hints at all kinds of material from the funny piano man’s extensive and iconic repertoire.
Celebrated globally for writing the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical and Groundhog Day (which have notched up more than 25 awards between them), BACK is Tim Minchin’s long-awaited follow up to the 2011 and 2012 consecutive sold-out national tours of Tim Minchin Vs the Orchestra.
With a long history of sold-out tours and the most recent being a one-off performance as part of Dark Mofo in June which sold out in under 15 minutes, Tim wants fans to be given priority access to tickets so is teaming up with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan © registration.
