It’s been a long time coming, but we can finally confirm that Tim has some swanky, new merchandise for you North Americans!
If you’re catching him on tour this month or next, there’s this rather lovely shirt that you can pick up at shows (tacks not included).
There’s no information about whether it’ll be made available online but if it is, rest assured there’ll be an announcement about it!
‘Ready for This?’ is going to get a proper CD release, in shops and stuff, soon and will also be available at Tim’s gigs from later this week. If you’ve been missing it on iTunes, then good news on that front as that’s coming back shortly too!
You’ve been waiting for this one! ‘Ready For This?’ as recorded at Hammersmith Apollo in 2009, is planned to be released in September. This is all that’s known at this point but, again, once we have any more information on this, we’ll let you know.
Full details of Tim’s North American shows, where you can pick up some of this swag, can be found on the gigs page, and, if you noticed the back of the shirt, it might be worth keeping an eye on it too…
As if it wasn’t enough that Tim’s playing at Apple Cart Festival on the 7th August, Beautiful Days on the 21st August and the Reading and Leeds weekenders, we can also announce that he’s playing at yet another festival this year!
Tim will be opening the Greenwich Comedy Festival on the 5th September, alongside Holly Walsh and two other acts, who are still to be announced. The festival will take place in the Old Royal Naval College, with the other acts performing including Rich Hall, Milton Jones, Kevin Eldon, David O’Doherty and Abandoman.
Tickets for all the shows and the full line up of who’s performing so far, are available from the Greenwich Comedy Festival website.
Who do you hope will be joining him and Holly Walsh?
If you missed out on tickets to see Tim at Bonnaroo or if you, perhaps, simply want to see some more of him, then read on!
Tomorrow at 6pm ET / 3pm PT, Comedy Central are hosting a three to four hour live webcast of some of the comedy acts that are appearing at this weekend’s festival, and one of them is none other than Tim!
He’ll be appearing along with acts such as Bill Bailey, Lewis Black, Henry Rollins and Donald Glover. The full line up, and, eventually, the link to stream this comedy extravaganza, are available on Comedy Central’s website.
While this is streaming over the internet, it’s unlikely this will be viewable outside of America due to copyright, but there’s no harm trying, right?
And if it ends up leaving you wanting more, don’t forget, there are a host of US gigs still to come, with a full list of all the dates on the gigs page.
Last night on Conan Tim performed ‘Prejudice’ as many of you correctly predicted in the blog that announced it.
If you are in Australia you might want to delay looking at the video below as you’ll be able to see the show on GEM this Thursday 9th June, 2011.
However, for those in the US who missed it and those in the UK and elsewhere, here’s the bare footage for your delectation:
[edit – ok, this video seems to have gone away. not our fault. oh well, you’re not reading this anyway, it’s too long ago isn’t it.]
Tim is currently on a two month tour of the US and you can find all the dates and ticket links here.
And another four American tour dates have been confirmed, for those near Atlanta, St. Louis, Minneapolis and Philadelphia!
Atlanta, Tim will be bringing his flashy dance moves and bare feet to Center Stage* on the 14th July 2011.
St. Louis, you’ll be treated to Tim’s skin-tight jeans and stupid hair at the Sheldon Concert Hall** on 15th July 2011.
Minneapolis, join Tim at the Pantages Theatre on the 16th July 2011 to see his rockin’ eyeliner and his enormous… sense of showmanship***
Philadelphia, Tim will be rocking up to the Theatre of Living Arts on the 22nd July 2011, showing off his witty repartee and massive… repertoire****
Tickets for the Atlanta and St. Louis shows go on sale tomorrow at 10am – Atlanta tickets can be bought from Ticketmaster and St. Louis tickets can be bought from MetroTix. While they both say general sale commences then, if you do need a password, it’ll be ‘reese’.
Minneapolis tickets go on sale on Friday from Ticketmaster from 10am CDT and Philadelphia tickets will be available from LiveNation from Wednesday at 10am EDT. While we don’t have any presale information yet for these two shows, if we do get any, we’ll be sure to update this post with it, just for you, because we like you.
Update: There will be a Minneapolis presale from Wednesday at 10am. The password you’ll need for it is VOICE.
And, if none of these float your boat, don’t forget there are already plenty of other US dates already announced on the gigs page!
