After selling out his national tour in record-breaking time and receiving rave audience reviews across the country earlier this year, internationally renowned, award-winning musician, comedian, actor, writer and composer, Tim Minchin is back… back-to-back, with BACK in 2020, coming to Perth’s Crown Theatre on Friday, March 6 and Saturday, March 7.
BACK was Minchin’s first Australian tour since returning to the country after almost a decade of living overseas and was seen by almost 69,000 Australians after a seven-year absence from the stage. The long-awaited tour also saw him pick up a prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert.
BACK is billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, hinting at a setlist 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.
Since his return to stage Minchin starred in the ABC 2018 comedy series Squinters and appeared as Friar Tuck in the Hollywood release of Robin Hood. He also starred in UPRIGHT, the eight-part drama series which he co-wrote with The Chaser’s Chris Taylor, actor-writers Leon Ford and WA’s own Kate Mulvaney, and co-produced with Lingo Pictures for Foxtel and Sky UK.
