If you fancy rocking in the UK New Year in an irreverent, hilarious and at the last gorgeously sentimental manner with a mischievous Australian musician, then you’ll be pleased to hear that Tim’s going to be on E4 at 23.35 on New Year’s Eve.
The show is billed as Tim Minchin: Live and seems to include inaccurate listings information giving details of his ‘Ready For This?’ show. It is described as a repeat, so it is more likely to be a re-showing of ‘So F**king Rock’: a 2 hour performance recorded at The Bloomsbury Theatre in London in 2008. It contains material from ‘Dark Side’ and ‘So Rock’ including Inflatable You, Rock n Roll Nerd, Canvas Bags, Dark Side, Angry (Feet), You Grew On Me, Peace Anthem for Palestine, Mitsubishi Colt and lots more.
Witness Tim obsess about shoes and get stuck up a comedy alley…
Think “Gee, that guy’s deep…”
Happy New Year!
Tim’s added a second date in sunny Los Angeles, on the 11th January, at the Largo.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at $20. The box office details and online booking link can be found on the gigs page.
The first LA date sold out in less than 24 hours so if you want to go get clicking!
Think you can handle a second date with Tim?
I’m on my couch. This year has involved very little time on couches for me, due to activities requiring a more upright posture than that which couches encourage. But the work year is over and the inevitable post-tour flu has arrived so the couch is suddenly ideal.
Sofa. The English call it a sofa. Sofa. So good.
I’d love to write a witty Christmas blog, but I think I’ve said all I could possibly hope to say already this year, in various forms, about various things, and I’m too snotty and shivery to think anyway. If you want to read the sort of thing I might write if I were feeling less knackered, here’s a column I wrote some years ago about Christmas.
But what I really want to do is acknowledge debt. I feel ridiculously grateful for the cool opportunities I’ve had this year and the support I’ve received in trying not to bugger them up. I have met and worked with dozens of people who have taught me so much and with whom I’ve had large measures of fun. It would be absurd to name everyone, but the entire companies of both “Matilda” and the Heritage Orchestra Tour are the objects of a great deal of my particular brand of love.
The only names I do want to name are those of Linzy and Shell, who run my online life. Linz started up Angry (Feet).com a few years ago, and has gone on to run my Facebook page and my Myspace page (RIP) and a lot of the content on this site. And Shell appeared in my life a couple of years ago and started doing incredible work to keep on top of it all too. They are incredibly good to me.
And thank you to you too. (< – cool sentence). If you are reading this, you are probably one of the insane, lovely people who keep tabs on what I get up to and do crazy shit like watch my shows and buy my DVDs and generally be enthusiastic and nice so that I can keep making stuff I want to make. I’m sorry that I haven’t got to meet so many of you this year, but I never take for granted how lucky I am to have such cool, thoughtful supporters.
That’s all I guess. My daughter has the flu too – I’d better go stick some drugs in her face.
If you’re interested in an overview of the status of the various things I’ve been beavering away at, read below.
Otherwise. Thank you thank you thank you. Merry Christmas. Peace be with you.
A second Orchestra Tour date has been added in Edinburgh on Saturday 16th April 2011, at the Edinburgh Playhouse.
Tickets are available from Ticketmaster here.
Further information and ticket links for the other three dates in Scotland: Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen can be found by clicking the GIGS tab above or here.
Ah…springtime in Scotland with a somewhat springy musician!
Tim will be flying across the Atlantic at least four times next year (there and back, twice) as we can confirm two appearances in America. Yes, you read that correctly!
The first appearance is in a matter of weeks, on the 12th January at the Largo in LA. Tickets are on sale now, priced at a mere $20, which is a bit of a bargain if you ask me. The box office details and online booking link can be found on the gigs page.
The second appearance will be in May at The Bamboozle Festival in New Jersey. Weekend tickets are on sale now and day tickets will go on sale on the 4th Jan. Again, links can be found on the gigs page.
Yes, this is all that’s confirmed and no, we don’t know if or when other dates will be added. By all means though, do “demand” Tim to play in your area on Eventful.com as it’ll help prove that you guys want to see Tim as much as the rest of the world!
