Tim Minchin And The Heritage Orchestra (Live At The Royal Albert Hall) will be on Channel 4 on Saturday 24th August, 11.35pm – 01:05am and an hour later on Channel 4 +1. It will also be on Channel 4 HD for those wishing to examine Tim’s colourful features and exotic tailoring in detail.
This spectacular show was filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in April 2011. Tim’s joined on stage by the awesome 55-piece Heritage Orchestra, led by Jules Buckley and by Pete Clements on bass and Brad Webb on drums. That’s almost too much beauty on one stage!
The concert features new orchestions of favourites such as You Grew on Me, Not Perfect, Dark Side, Prejudice and Rock `n’ Roll Nerd as well as Thank You God, Lullaby and many more. It’s a heady mix of soaring music in a very special, wonderfully lit setting with Tim’s sharp satirical comedy and iconic dance moves.
If you want to stay spoiler free but whet your appetite for the show this trailer for the DVD will give you a marvellously cheesy taster and a look at the fabulous Royal Albert Hall:
On the other hand you could dive right in to watch Tim perform Thank You God in all its glory:
Should your interest be piqued and you’d like to read a bit of bloggage, from back in 2011, celebrating the show: Tim, Brad, Pete and Chris Wheeler, producer of the Heritage Orchestra, can be found here doing just that.
Channel 4 is showing edited highlights. If you’d like to see more, the DVD is available from the UK & Europe Shop and the Australasia Shop. Both ship internationally if you are outside these regions and we’ll announce on this site as soon as it is available in North America.
