Gig & Concert News - Tim Minchin Is 'Back' In New Zealand In 2021

Tim Minchin Is 'Back' In New Zealand In 2021

23 April 2021 - 0 Comments

Internationally renowned, award-winning musician, comedian, actor, writer and composer, Tim Minchin has confirmed he will return to New Zealand for the encore return of Back – playing Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch this June.

My Live Nation members can be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale period starting 12pm, Tuesday 27th April.

Tickets for all shows go on sale at 1pm on Thursday 29th April.

Playing sold out shows across NZ in 2019, 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. 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. It continues to run in the West End and has already played in over 50 cities worldwide.

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.

In 2019/20 Minchin wrote, produced and starred in the Sky Atlantic / Foxtel TV series, Upright.. Other screen-acting credits include Atticus Fetch in Season 6 of Californication, a Logie Award-winning Smasher Sullivan in the ABC’s Secret River, and Friar Tuck in Lionsgate’s Robin Hood reboot. Stage highlights include Judas in the UK / Australian Arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar in 2012, and Rosencrantz in the Sydney Theatre Company's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead the following year. He has published two books: the graphic novel, Storm, and the illustrated childrens’ book, When I Grow Up.

In November 2020, Tim debuted his solo album Apart Together at #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 for 48 hours to critical acclaim.
