While Tim’s in the UK to perform with Tim Rice, someone decided it’d be a good idea to have a long, friendly chit-chat with him live on stage!
On the 7th July 2014, Tim will be interviewed by Fiona Lindsay at the Lyric Theatre in London for her twelve part series Encounters: Performers on Performance.
The series celebrates performance, investigates the enduring allure of those that do it and reveals the transformative nature of performing. In other words, we reckon there’ll be some interesting gossip revealed!
Previous interviewees have included Ruby Wax and David Suchet, so Tim’s in good company.
Tickets are on sale now from the Nimax Theatres website, Box Office: 0844 412 4663, priced from £22.00 and (although with an apparently higher booking fee) from See Tickets.
Tim was announced today as one of the special guests who’ll pay tribute to Tim Rice, at his Life In Song concert, at London’s Royal Festival Hall on the 8th July, 2014.
In 2012, Tim toured with the first ever UK arena tour of Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s legendary rock classic Jesus Christ Superstar, cast in his dream role of Judas Iscariot, reprising his award winning role when the show toured Australian arenas and then the UK again in 2013.
He’ll be performing one of the many songs saluted at this unique evening, celebrating fabulous music and iconic lyrics. Michael Grade will hosting and in conversation with Tim Rice to tease out the stories behind some of the best loved songs from stage and screen over the last five decades.
Music will be performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, conducted by Mike Dixon and the show will also be filmed by the BBC for broadcast later this year.
Tickets are priced at £30-£85 and are available from the Southbank Centre, www.eventim.co.uk or 0844 249 1000.
Last month, on a flying visit to Melbourne, Tim attended the launch of the world première DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition, at The Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI). He’s currently working on ‘Larrikins’, a Dreamworks animated feature, which tells the story of a little bilby who finds himself launched on a musical adventure across the mystical and untamed Australian outback.
In case you missed it in the Aus press, we thought you might like to see a couple of photos and a little video footage from the event.
Evidently Alex the Lion was delighted to embrace a kindred spirit, so clearly willing to have an eyeball and tooth-off. Tim won by a whisker:
