Hi lovely humans. I’m (finally) touring again! Phew.

I’ll be playing in Australia in March – April, and then in the UK in October – November of 2019. Venues and dates below.

Tickets to both tours go on sale to the masses next Thursday 6th September. BUT…

… You can get access to PRE-SALE tickets on Wednesday 5th, IF you register as Ticketmaster Verified Fan (It sounds like a bit of a wank, but it’s a system to try to curtail scalpers. It’s a good thing, I think). You need to register BEFORE 5pm AEST on SUNDAY (11:59pm BST for the UK). Details below.

I’ll also be selling 50 Premium Charity Seats every night at a ridiculously high price, and all the income from those seats will go to charity. If you have a bit of spare cash, please keep an eye out for those. Information on Australian charities here. (UK charities TBC)

Hope you can come. I think it will be very fun.

Tim x

Hi Tim!
Please come back to the UK in 2020 I’d love to come watch you live and didn’t manage to get tickets last time! xx

Arie Ortiz on 9th of January 2020

Hey Tim, do you by any chance plan on releasing “Back” on dvd/BluRay?

It would be awesome to see that, especially since I am in the US where a lot of your stuff is hard to get access to.

If possible, it would be cool if you did a tour in the Wisconsin/Chicago area since I am in Wisconsin. 🙂

Barry on 29th of December 2019

Dear Tim,
I really enjoy your music and wit, and your unabashed atheism! If you can, please come to Canada! Ottawa would be best for me but Toronto, Montreal or even Vancouver would be OK.
Thanks,
Barry
(ex-pat Australian living in Canada)

Jack Gallaher on 7th of December 2019

Tim,
I have only seen you on Youtube and listened to your songs in my home in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. If I can ever see my way to afford the time and expense to travel to Australia, that trip will be planned around whatever date allows me to attend a live Tim Minchin performance. As that possibility seems fairly remote I would be thrilled if you could make your way to tour Canada, and do a performance at the fantastic new Rogers Place Arena in Edmonton. Over the top thrilled if that included ‘White Wine in the Sun’ on the setlist!

Monica on 7th of December 2019

Please come back to UK soon. We had tickets to see you in Liverpool, but due to a bereavement in the family, couldn’t make it.

Chris on 1st of December 2019

Love your stuff Tim! I’ve been a fan for over a decade. Please consider coming to the U.S. sir! Trust me, you DO have fans over here. Cheers!

Pablo on 29th of November 2019

Southend Gig was awesome despite how ill Tim obviously was.

Musicianship to be envious of, from Tim and his amazing band, each one of them a privilege to watch and hear.

Katie on 23rd of November 2019

Probably the most amazing musician of all time

Kate on 18th of November 2019

What an incredible show in Birmingham on Saturday night! I anticipated it would be fabulous but you really blew me and my son away! I also was jammy getting front row seats ( which I have never managed before for any other concert in my life – and at 44 years of age I’ve been to a few!) Such brilliance…..thank you Tim and your band! The final tribute to your tour manager that passed away was beautiful and moving. You certainly did him proud x Back soon to the UK please?

Harriet on 8th of November 2019

I’m struggling to find the right words to express just how good you and your band are. Truly exceptional! We saw you in Plymouth on 5th November. I bought the tickets for my husband 18 months ago, but sadly he couldn’t go to the show as he was in hospital suffering from major head trauma, having had a terrible accident a few days before! I tried to tell him all about it, but it turns out I’m just not as talented or funny as you! PLEASE tour in the UK again soon, so that I can take him next time…

Cathy on 3rd of November 2019

Thank you for the most awesome performance in Portsmouth. Covered all bases and left us with nothing else to talk about. You guys couldn’t have given more xx

Patrick Bergeron on 30th of October 2019

A tour in Canada, PLEASE!

Zoe on 21st of October 2019

We saw you in Oxford and you were amazing. Thank you.

Robert Birnie on 17th of October 2019

Thanks Tim, great show in ipswich last night. I can only describe it as …. a tumultuos, talented tour de force, rhythmically riotous, lyrical loving and loathing…. in synopsis -a f#*king good show! He’s back! #suffolkngood #Backtourbetterthanbackstop

Lynne Bellinger on 11th of October 2019

Hi Tim,
Luckily I have a ticket to see you in Ipswich on Wednesday 16th and really looking forward to it after losing my husband in January. Saw you perform once in Colchester many years ago on your Canvas Bag tour and you were awesome even then. Great oaks from little acorns grow. :)

Chris Yellow on 11th of October 2019

We would love to watch you in the rest of Europe. Come to Belgium, Brussels and/or Antwerp, come to Portugal Lisbon and/or Porto. People in both countries are Catholic with lots of sense of humor and with a great grip of the English language (too small to translate tv). ;-)

Zoe on 2nd of October 2019

Only found out about this tour today and it’s sold out everywhere! I am crushed. Would be an absolute dream to see Tim live.

Romm on 2nd of October 2019

Dear Tim, I wanted to write something nasty to get your attention but – being Canadian – couldn’t bring myself to it. So instead I’m offering any assistance in securing some dates for your performance here in Toronto, Canada. Let me know how I can help

James Pappaconstantine on 30th of August 2019

Come to the States again Brutha. Especially the NortheSt parts. Boston, Bew Hampshire or up here in Maine. I really dig your work.

Robin Kennedy on 23rd of August 2019

Have followed you for several years but only electronically. Would love to see you on stage. Congratulations on all your well-deserved awards! Your musical genius is greatly appreciated in the “colonies” especially in Indiana. Please consider another US tour.

Vinny on 22nd of August 2019

USA! USA! USA!

Seriously though, saw you awhile back at Town Hall in NYC. I took 2 of my nephews and they talk about the show to this day. Come back, please!

Natalie on 4th of August 2019

Moving to Brisbane (from US) this October, and hopefully my boyfriend and I will finally get the chance to see you perform!

James on 4th of August 2019

Will you ever be coming to the US?

If not, we may have to sell our home to get a flight out to see you.

Robert on 3rd of August 2019

What will it take to get you to come to the United States?
We need you. We are going through a very dark period here. We have president who is equal parts idiot and asshole and need some humor to help us deal with the pain.
You don’t have to visit all of the US (avoid the South). And if it’s a single place you visit, make it Los Angeles.

Rusty Shackleford on 2nd of August 2019

Why does Tim hate the US? Why, oh why? Won’t you do a US tour? Please? We have puppies. And children. And lollipops.

Allison on 29th of July 2019

I actually came to this website willing to travel to the UK to see you. But since those shows are all sold out, it’d be way easier for me if you just came to the Pacific Northwest USA! Pretty please? I think both your statistics jokes AND F Sharp are hilarious – we’re all nerds up here. Microsoft and Boeing and whatnot. Plus it’s beautiful! 🥺

Mathieu LeBlanc on 6th of July 2019

Please come to Canada!

Bruno on 1st of July 2019

Come to St. Louis you funking wanker!!! Fuck I love boobs though!!!

Jaska on 30th of June 2019

Yes, please do a US tour!!!

Laura Pakaln on 23rd of June 2019

Please come to the New York area, preferably Nyack, but we haven’t got a good venue space, so right across the Hudson River is the Tarrytown Music Hall which you would fill in an instant. I adore your music! It enables me to continue living! Please one! And thank you for sharing your music with us and making us happy!

colin on 21st of June 2019

Came here to look for Canada tour dates (Ottawa!)…I’ll keep checking!

Dermy williamson on 5th of May 2019

Was lucky enough to take in your Gold Coast show, sensational. When can we hope to get access to some of the new songs from the shows.

Ray on 3rd of May 2019

More shows in Oz pleeeaaaasssse!

Ashleigh on 2nd of May 2019

I saw your show in Madison Wisconsin years ago and have loved your music and interviews ever since. Please come back to the US or CA soon…maybe towards the northwest?

Jack on 26th of April 2019

hey Tim, as many others have begged you to do, please please do a show in Canada … please please with a f**** beaver tail on top ;) But seriously now, why not eh? After all we are a part of the Great Commonwealth of Nations aren’t we? So are we not, as yer brethren, at least as worthy as the Americans?

Liz on 26th of April 2019

Is the US a regressive pit of fear-based, ignorance-feuled violence and self-destructive solipsism? …Clearly… All the more reason we could use a voice like yours. You are brilliant and wonderful. I’d love the chance to see you live!

Paul Spiers on 21st of April 2019

Please come to Canada, you have some adoring fans here!

Rob Carnage on 21st of April 2019

We hope you come “Back” to Canada for this tour at some point!

Dewi on 20th of April 2019

Please come to Canada :)

Felicity McKenzie on 16th of April 2019

Great show last night! Could catch the name of the saxophonist? Who was it?
Thanks

Sebastien McSween on 15th of April 2019

Hi,

I was just wondering if there is a plan for Canadian dates in the next few years.

Thanks,

Sébastien McSween

Kari on 30th of March 2019

DALLAS, sir. PLEASE!

Teresa on 25th of March 2019

Please come to the states! We are suffering from extreme Trump fatigue and are about to be inundated with political election bull and really need your humor now! California’s Central Coast calling. Vina Robles or The Fremont in San Luis Obispo would be excellent venues for you.

Stuart on 19th of March 2019

Hey Tim, thanks for the magnificent show in Canberra (fireworks and all…).
Would love to know more about the band – brilliant. Hope you enjoyed the Clonakilla. Cheers

Alison on 15th of March 2019

I echo the previous comments. Come to the States! Chicago is lovely this time of year. :)

Kelsey Beeckman on 14th of March 2019

Please come to the USA, my fiance and I are such huge fans and have been for years!!! We live in Las Vegas but would travel to California, Texas or other states in a heartbeat if we could see you!!

Ana on 13th of March 2019

Please…PLEASE come to the US – you are a genius!!!!

Kolton on 13th of March 2019

I have found you recently through Netflix, and shared your shows with my friends. I know it’s the conversative heart of the US, but PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE try to get a show in the Dallas, TX area in the future. That would be the experience of a lifetime!

Susanne on 5th of March 2019

Hey Tim

I so hope you will be touring Northern Europe in 2021 or something (just had a baby, so waiting till she is big enough ;) ).

Love your work

John Clapp on 1st of March 2019

Tim,
Love your work. As many others have already said, please plan a US (San Francisco Area?) tour soon!
Keep up the great work!

David Mohorko on 28th of February 2019

If you ever run for public office 1/2 of the voters + 3 million would love to have you lead the USA out of this ignorance and obscene selfishness and hate!

Atleast come for a visit to shine your light and laughter, pretty please.

Jeff Keegan on 17th of February 2019

Seriously considered flying from Boston to the UK or Australia to see you live. You are the soundtrack of our lives in my family.

Please please please consider coming to Boston. If you can’t do the US, something in Canada and we’ll go there.

We’ve listened to everything you’ve done – just finally saw you playing Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar.. so good. We love you Tim!

Matthew Goetke on 13th of February 2019

Tim, PLEASE come to the East Coast of the United States. Your music is genius, your humor is brilliant, and your feet are bare! And non-existent lord knows, those bare feet don’t dig on dancing!

Plato on 19th of January 2019

Tim, on behalf of all rational and analytical thinking Americans I apologize for our recent blunder in our last presidential election. What you said about our country in The Guardian interview last January was, unfortunately, spot on. Most of us acknowledge how dramatic the embarrassment is, so we fight on to right the wrong. Your work is genius, and I hope someday you’ll return to LA. From the looks of all the sold out shows in Australia in 2019, maybe 2020?

Michelle Cass on 18th of January 2019

Please come back to San Francisco. I had to attend a wedding on the same day you had your show in Masonic Theater

Sujata Benson on 9th of January 2019

Tim…please come to Belfast …my kids love your shows n what a treat it would be for us all to go to see you as a family. Please please please and one more f**king please …need to have front seats tickets. How much more do I have to beg

Mark Morgain on 3rd of January 2019

Please come to Israel you said you want to bask in Gaza strip 😅😍

Robin D'Arcy on 31st of December 2018

Come see us in the US.
Truly, truly miss you!
xox

Shona Curtin on 26th of December 2018

Does anyone know roughly the duration of the show? I have a ticket but I’m also rostered for a night shift that night!

Thanks!!

Suzanne on 19th of December 2018

Thank you for spurring me to purchase tickets for one of the UK shows, I’m finally crossing the pond and meeting the friends I made when I was first introduced to your music.

I second (third?) (fiftieth?) the others who suggest touring in Canada. I’m in Florida, and I’m flying to Montreal to see Marillion this spring – US Visa fees are obscene (nearly as much as our elected leader). If you give us half as much notice as you did for this tour, we will be there. Maybe our friends to the north will let us all stay for the duration of this administration. MAS

Vito Peragine on 18th of December 2018

Hi Tim,

Come to Montreal. I would go to New York or Boston. Even Toronto.

Derek S on 16th of December 2018

I have to agree with the masses… When will you be coming back to North America? You can stick to Canada, if you’re concerned about the Americans.

Greg Moulds on 13th of December 2018

IT MUST BE SOMEWHAT GRATIFYING TO HAVE CARDINAL PELL FINALLY CONVICTED OF CHILD SEXUAL ASSAULTS.

Wishful Thinking on 10th of December 2018

Please come to Dallas, Texas

lizzie on 10th of December 2018

When might you come to the states. Vermont is lovely in the fall. Plus we have Bernie Sanders! And Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.

Christine on 6th of December 2018

You have Singapore fans! Be sure to stop by ;)

Marina on 4th of December 2018

I’m from India and have been following your work for over a decade.
You turned me into an eye-makeup believer.

I’ve somehow managed to make it to Hawai’i for the next three years, and this is as close as I can get to you, for now.

Would you please consider stopping by sometime soon?

Much appreciated.

Sam Muraskin on 28th of November 2018

Tim, please tour the US – we are not all assholes! my whole family has been wanting to see your show, but we cannot afford to travel overseas

Tim oNeil on 26th of November 2018

You are always going through New Zealand and Australia so why not come to Hawaii.

Renee on 26th of November 2018

I will join Susan in requesting that you come to the US – please save us

Susan on 21st of November 2018

Please, please, please, please, please come to the US – we need you more than ever.

Steve on 7th of November 2018

Hey Tim, have you ever considered updating ‘Storm’ by making her an SJW instead of a new-ager?

“Do you know what they call systemic racism that’s been proved to exist? “Racism””.

This idea’s gold, Tim. You should run with it.

Freddie Gulliver on 5th of November 2018

Please add more UK tour dates especially in or around Ipswich.

Barry on 9th of October 2018

Another vote for a gig in Ireland. Please.

Keren S. on 5th of October 2018

I get not wanting to tour the US, but surely Canada deserves you. I’d travel from Boston to Toronto or Montreal or Halifax if you played … please.

Carole on 30th of September 2018

Hi Tim,
Please tell us you will be releasing further dates in Brisbane? Unfortunately we did not see the flyers until just after the bookings opened and it was all sold out. Our 14 yr old daughter is the biggest fan of yours and we would just love the opportunity to bring her to one of your shows as she really relates to you and your message. She has a huge heart but struggles terribly with social anxiety but comes alive when she listens or watches your videos, which is where she started following you, then your music and comedy. She is a very talented bass player who is rising the local ranks, who gets so inspired by seeing live music performances. Please do further shows up here as the first 4 sold out easily!

Rachel Jacobson on 13th of September 2018

Hi Tim. The tour sounds wonderful. Can you please make a DVD of it for those of us stuck in the rest of the world where you are not. I am also very much looking forward to hearing your album. Thank you especially for The Absence of You. What a beautiful love song ! ❤️

Naomi on 10th of September 2018

I first saw Tim live at the Reading Hexagon theatre back in 2009 and have been fortunate ebough to go to both the orchestra tour and see him in JCSS twice. Hearing about this tour literally made my year after some challenging times, including becoming a parent for the first time. I feel so lucky to have been at home at 10am and therefore able to get good tickets to one of the Cardiff dates (thank you maternity leave!), but I didn’t even know about the ticketmaster system- the theatre was offering presale tickets to everyone subscribed to their mailing list. Fab news for people like me, but it also meant touts had access too I guess. I’ve already seen Portsmouth tickets appear on Viagogo for £655, which is utterly disgusting. I thank Tim and his team for trying to get past touts and can only hope no one reinforces the touts behaviour by paying so grossly over the odds. Why it’s still legal k have no idea. Anyway, rant over and roll on October next year! Can’t wait.

nicodemusw on 10th of September 2018

French tour pretty please

Terri-Lynn McCormick on 10th of September 2018

Boston, MA loves you. Would love to see you!

Pippa Andrews on 9th of September 2018

Hi Tim

I did the verified fan thing, didn’t get a code. Tried to get tickets for Portsmouth, been wanting to see you for years. Sold out so quick I didn’t get any. Are you going to release any more dates? I tried Oxford too but no joy… thanks Pippa

Neil Atkinson on 8th of September 2018

I concur with Stuart; Ticketmaster gives the impression that nothing’s available. I did want to see Tim at Portsmouth and that is sold out but I went directly to the London Palladium’s box office and got tix for the 9th instead.

Stuart Burton on 7th of September 2018

Hi Tim

Pleased to have obtained a ticket for Cardiff’s St David’s Hall next year, However trying to get the ticket via Ticketmaster was a complete nightmare and just had “try searching again” or try another date so in the end went to the St David’s Hall website and got mine there.

So to those that have not had any luck yet via Ticketmaster try the venue and see if they have any spare tickets left.

Look forward to seeing you for the 1st time in October =)

Sharon Churchill on 7th of September 2018

Hi Tim
I’m trying to get 2 tickets through Ticketmaster for any of your tour dates at the Palais Theatre next year and all. Dates say no result available.. is this correct ? Concerts all sold out? :( kind regards, Sharon

John Stuart-Mills on 6th of September 2018

Laudable attempt to “curtail scalpers”, Tim, but how come Ticketmaster only offered the charity rate tickets during the verified fan pre sale for your Portsmouth UK date?

Neil on 6th of September 2018

Didn’t have access at 10am on both days and missed out. Hoping you add a few more dates.

Juliette on 6th of September 2018

All gone already 😥

Daphna on 6th of September 2018

Not coming to Berlin? …

Sini on 6th of September 2018

Do you maybe tour Germany or Netherlands?

Trevor on 5th of September 2018

Got my tickets for Liverpool.
14 month countdown starts now.

Ole Henrik on 5th of September 2018

Hi Tim! When are you coming to Norway?

Shell on 5th of September 2018

Hi Lauren,
Which show do you mean? I’ve been updating the list above and the Gigs page listings as they come in. I’m sure if you booked it the show exists.
Shell x

Lauren Moxom on 5th of September 2018

Managed to get four tickets via Ticketmaster, SMS came through and link worked like a dream. I am a little concerned though as I have got tickets for a date which isn’t included on your website? Is this because it seems only verified fans are able to buy the tickets? Some clarity would be great as I’m as starting to panic that I have bought tickets for a gig which isn’t real!!

Christine McGeever on 5th of September 2018

Thrilled to have been able to get tickets for the Glasgow show. Found the verified fan code worked fine, though the terminology was confusing.

There was no clear information on the Ticketmaster website about the difference between “Verified Fan” tickets and “Verified Fan Charity” tickets. I thought the latter was a special separate group which I had not been authorised for so went for the plain verified fan category and obtained 2 tickets in the gallery.

Had been hoping for the stalls though, so, never being one to give up (and now more familiar with how the booking and paying process worked) I explored the charity tickets option to find that I could get two tickets in the stalls. Woohoo!!! Exactly what I was wanting. And row D seats. Brilliant! (subsequently googled to find out more about the charity tickets and am delighted to discover that the money from all the premium charity seats is going to be shared among so many worthy sounding charities in Australia. Well done Tim, such a generous gesture)

So now I have 2 tickets in the stalls and 2 in the gallery but that’s ok – it will mean two lucky friends will get to come to the concert as a treat. Just hope they aren’t too disappointed when we tell them we are in the stalls and they are in the gallery. I think they’ll just be tickled pink at the prospect of seeing Tim live – as indeed are we – can hardly wait for next November!!

If you’ve not been successful in the ‘vilified’ fan pre-sale – advice seems to be that there will be more tickets on general-sale tomorrow from 10am, with no registration required (both through TM, and venue-direct sales)

Ironically, we had more success buying (unverified) via venue-direct pre-sales – completed our purchase at 10:01 – so whilst I understand the intent, I’m not at all convinced of the benefits of TM ‘verification’.

We’re very much looking forward to seeing Tim in Oxford next year! :)

Ceris Francis on 5th of September 2018

Got my tickets for Portsmouth today!! Can’t wait to see you perform again…yippeee!

Joao Ribeiro on 5th of September 2018

Dear Tim,

Extremely gutted to see tickets to Sheffield had been sold out by the time I got out from a work meeting!

Please add another date, can’t wait to see you live!
Cheers!

Samantha Lloyd on 5th of September 2018

Hey Fans

I was not able to secure tickets for my chosen venue through Ticketmaster called 35 times and kept refreshing online BUT the venue in Brighton- The Dome did have tickets were extremely helpful and less expensive I would recommend contacting the venue directly- good luck!

Kerrie on 5th of September 2018

Had a verified code and been ready waiting to get tickets. Have got no where with the ticket master site. I don’t understand why it didn’t work. The same message(no tickets available) even though I was on it straight away at 10am. So disappointed.

David Ashley on 5th of September 2018

Dear Tim, my wife and I love your shows and saw yourself and Mel in Jesus Christ Superstar. I was sent a verified fan number by Ticketmaster this morning, and attempted at 10.00 through to 10.10 to book 2 tickets online for any date at any price at the Eventim Appollo in London, and the New Theatre Oxford. The Ticketmaster website everytime said no tickets were available. Can you help? Kind regards, David Ashley

Riitta from Finland on 5th of September 2018

We are your fans Tim with my daughter. It`s really pity. I organized and change my workday to get tickets to Tim´s consert. I live in Finland and I didn´t get any code. And I done everything as was instructed. Are the people in UK privileged to get tickets? You have also fans here in North.

Matt on 5th of September 2018

Yes! Verified fan booked for Birmingham UK, can’t wait!!!

Allison Gardner on 5th of September 2018

I am trying and trying today to get tickets via Ticketmaster using the verified fan code but it keeps coming up that the tickets are not available. Any reasons!! I am never this organised to be ready to get tickets – am I doing something wrong?

Christopher Payne on 5th of September 2018

Presale in UK doesn’t seem to be working

Egle on 5th of September 2018

Logged in 10:03 with fan code and no tickets left…. :( Now I’m really worried I wont get at all

Samantha Lloyd on 5th of September 2018

I was lucky enough to secure a Verified fan code for the show in Brighton but my code does not work and Ticketmaster are not answering their phone/emails I am worried that I will not be able to secure my tickets in time- any advice?

Glyn on 5th of September 2018

Disappointing to see the presale tickets selling out in the first 5 minutes! Need more shows or a bigger venue… will try general public sale.

ERIKA GERDSEN on 5th of September 2018

Problem solved… For QPAC Brisbane you have to buy through QTIX (not Ticketmaster).

ERIKA GERDSEN on 5th of September 2018

I’m trying to see how much tickets will be (for QPAC, Brisbane). Went to the Ticketmaster website and the two Brisbane shows aren’t even mentioned???!!! :-(

Sally Eldridge on 5th of September 2018

I realise I haven’t seen anything by way of confirmation of my fan status after registering. I thought I did everything right on Saturday but now worried I got it wrong and won’t get an SMS 😥

Buz on 4th of September 2018

Woohoo – I’m a verified-fan on a *waiting list* – so worth registering to be randomly not-selected :(

Sarah on 4th of September 2018

This is excellent news. Hope I can get to one of the shows. :)

Kath on 4th of September 2018

Hi Tim, I am soooo glad you are touring and coming to Perth and I love your commitment to curtailing scalpers; they are the scum of the earth. BUT, I pride myself on getting tickets for events through the good old method of sitting there with my hand on the button and trying, trying, trying until I get through. Persistence and preparation is the key! With this verified method it is totally random (I presume) as to whether you get ‘verified’ or not. I just got my ‘you are not verified’ email and I thought, but seriously, I am a big fan and I am a real person and I really, really want a chance to get tixs. But there is nothing I can do except wait until the limited number of tickets go on sale on Thursday. Very disappointing so thought I would give you the feedback because while I applaud the objective it is very demoralising out here in fan-land not even being in with a chance for the main batch of tixs. But of course I will still be sitting there trying really hard to get tixs on Thursday and hopefully I will be able to thoroughly embarrass my daughter when she comes with me to one of your Perth gigs. Yours in solidarity-against-scalpers-but-hope-someone-invents-a-better-way. xx Kath.

James on 4th of September 2018

Need a Dublin date there Tim (please!) :D

Joe on 3rd of September 2018

Yes Tim, please come to the US!
PLEEEEASE!!!

LESLIE SWANSON on 1st of September 2018

Tim,

It is wonderful you are touring again. When are you coming to the US? We love you over here too!

Hrefna on 1st of September 2018

Hope the country code thing on the phone number works. Will be flying over from Iceland if successful! :)

Lindy Draper on 1st of September 2018

This is so exciting! My husband and I have been to all your Adelaide shows (the last being ‘The walk of Fame’), so i’ll be eager to get tickets for this upcoming show as my husband’s Christmas present.
Your are incredibly talented and fascinatingly unique.
Love your work xx

Trinity on 31st of August 2018

Hello Tim & Team
Any dates for Dublin ??? end of November maybe ;) Hoping so!
Many thanks in advance

Joel Deaves on 31st of August 2018

Will it be 18+?

Laura Russell on 31st of August 2018

Being an old old friend of Tim’s before he was famous sea monkeys band days I can’t get into the verified page with my ticketmaster login… Tim! help.. would be lovely to see you… Laura – former elephant groupie.

Nicola Hinds on 30th of August 2018

Won’t let me pre register!

Ana on 30th of August 2018

I can’t believe it!!! My boyfriend and I are huuuuuge fans!! I hope I can get those tickets :D

Btw, does anyone knows if we’re supposed to get an email confirmation after we register as a Verified Fan? I registered and on the website they confirmed it, but I haven’t received any confirmation.. I don’t know if I should do it again or not! Thank you!

Kisses from Portugal <3

Yasie on 30th of August 2018

TIM!! I live in two places in australia…NT and Tasmania. Both of which you are not touring!! It’s sad that this is so, as you have fans that would live to see your show.

Cate M on 30th of August 2018

Dear Tim

Why not Hobart I ask? Two shows in Adelaide and none in Hobart – that is just not fair. Th Bass Strait is just a little pond you can cross in a plane.

Yours in sadness
Cate

Nish on 30th of August 2018

Yesssssss!!! Best news ever!
Just done the presale and you can select more than one venue when you put in your application. Keeping my fingers crossed for tickets in Ipswich.
I get the impression you get an early access code so it is not a guaranteed ticket, but an excellent chance to get in early on the tickets on Wednesday from 10am rather than on Thursday. Hope that helps :)
…Now figuring out a way to keep my new tutor group distracted while I buy tickets at work!!! :p

Shell on 30th of August 2018

I’m looking into Accessibility for those asking. If you’re registering and buying from Ticketmaster in Australia this is the advice:

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR ACCESSIBILITY SEATING TICKETS?
Fans with accessibility bookings still need to register for Verified Fan. If successful, when the presale opens please call Ticketmaster’s Accessible Seating Line if you have Wheelchair or Special Needs booking requirements on 1300 446 925. You will need to quote your Verified Fan presale access code.

We accept email enquiries and booking requests regarding accessibility at [email protected].

For general enquiries please submit a request with our customer support team.

When leaving an email enquiry, please ensure you include the Event Name, Venue, Date and Time along with your contact details.

Service Hours: Monday – Friday 9am – 9pm; Saturday – Sunday 9am – 5pm (closed Christmas / Boxing Day).

From: Click HERE for further information about Ticketmaster Verified Fan – ANZ

For the UK it seems a little different. This from Ticketmaster:

“We would normally advise the venues to handle their accessibility bookings as they usually would.
We can provide a list of the fans who are verified to the venue for them to cross reference, along with their codes.
We will make sure that all venue / accessibility info is displayed, I will make sure now, that our blog / FAQ section includes this.
Our customer service teams will be briefed on this too, so they know how to handle any customers who require an accessible booking.”

So, it looks like you register as per the link in the blog above and then contact the venue once you get your unique code to access tickets. Might be worth checking with the venue in advance too.

UPDATE: The UK Blog/FAQ has now been updated with this information:

‘Those looking to make accessible bookings should contact the venue as per usual after receiving their Verified Fan® code. The venues will be provided in advance with a list of all verified fans.’

Hope some of this helps and you all get great seats!

Olanoo on 30th of August 2018

Such very happy news and tour kicks off in the UK on my birthday too! Not that I ever really need an excuse to come see your shows.
Do we know if the ballot selection thing let’s you apply for tickets at more than one venue? I’d like to see the show near my birthday, and then would want to go with my sister (who also would need accessible seating options, so I agree with previous comments/questions about that- good point Andy) at a venue closer to her home later in the tour… ooh it’s exciting!!

Kerry Hinchliffe on 30th of August 2018

Andy P – thanks for mentioning the access & accessible seating. It means a lot to me. My heart sinks when I see gigs publicised as often it’s a case of a sell out as ‘we’ often have to ring venues..yup in 2018! …to try & book accessible seating as I can’t stand or walk at all. #AlliesMakeADifference #Enablers 😊.

Kerry Hinchliffe on 30th of August 2018

Really really hope that I’m drawn in the verified fan thingy (& hope they have enough accessible seating as I cannae walk). . but must say that it’s absolutely fabulous that you’re doing the charity seats & the ones for Oz & NZ look to be very worthy & I’m sure that the ones here in the UK will be too.
Will keep my fingers crossed that I can get tix (esp as my neck was too unstable for me to travel to the old Vic earlier this year) but if I can’t then I must say it’s lovely & strangely comforting to think that you’ll be here in the UK. Sharing the same landmass once more (fleeting as it may be). Best wishes to you and your family. 😊.

Kathy McNicholas on 30th of August 2018

Hi.
I live in the UAE and won’t be able to travel to any of the UK dates because they are not in our school holidays. 😞

It’s long way from Oz/NZ to the UK. Might you need a stop over in Dubai and do a little gig here? Please.

Andy on 30th of August 2018

Wonderful news! Just hope there is provision in ticketing for those with special access needs. ❤

Kara Morton on 29th of August 2018

So happy for this announcement!

SHAKIRA MELBOURNE on 29th of August 2018

Please come to Belfast!!!!

Alon Gal on 29th of August 2018

YES!
Finally I might have a chance to see you on stage. Gonna have to see how feasible it is to fly out from Israel just for this but I’m hoping to make it happen.

Sue on 29th of August 2018

Oh yeah, yes,yes,yes! Can’t wait, hope I get tickets. Last saw you at Manchester Arena Dec 2010, laughed so much I nearly gave birth (was actually 8 months pregnant at the time, I’m not being totally random). Thank you for touring again, you’ve been missed!

Suzanne Reardon-Mulhall on 29th of August 2018

I think this will get me across the pond to the UK next year. So happy for all the friends I made in the UK and Oz who have been anxiously awaiting more shows.

Daire O Muiri on 29th of August 2018

Any chance of a Dublin date squeezed in there?… or even Belfast?!

Georgie Bull on 29th of August 2018

I travelled for 7 hours to see you at the Old Vic in London earlier this year, thinking it was a once in a lifetime opportunity… Now you announce a show in my city! I’m absolutely over the moon. 2019 is awesome already. Thank you!

Stu on 29th of August 2018

Will drag myself out of bed before 10 just for this!

Hafdís on 29th of August 2018

OMG…. Hope I get tickets to your show… Will travel from Iceland if I do :)

Sarah Jane Smith on 29th of August 2018

We are so excited you are going to be touring again. Aiming for Brighton and looking forward to Ginger, Zombie Jesus and some White Wine in the Sun. CHEESE!

Julie Morris on 29th of August 2018

Can’t wait….number one on my ‘must see this bloke live’ list

Ervin Smorgasson on 29th of August 2018

So, if I travel from Trumpistan to see you in the UK, would I be able to get a poster or something signed or a photo with your good self to take back and frame and place on my mantle? I’d hate to go all the way to the UK, see the gig, make it back to the dumpster fire that is ‘Merica and not have anything to make my roommate super jealous and hate me. I’d feel the trip would be almost wasted if I didn’t make her hate me due to significant evidence of “paling around with a rock star with a piano”.
Many thanks in advance,
Ervin Smorgasson (alias)

Lesley Young on 29th of August 2018

Wow! So unbelievably excited that you’re actually coming to a place which is less than 30 miles from me. When I came to the Heritage Orchestra Tour I had to travel for 6 hours on public transport. This is fricking fantastic news!! Thank you Timmy <3

Craig Molyneaux on 29th of August 2018

Wooo! Been waiting on you coming back!!

Iso Aplin on 29th of August 2018

oh my word! So very excited!! I have followed your career for many years and cannot wait to see you perform in my very city!! Yippieee!

Louise Carway on 29th of August 2018

Oh wow, this is fantastic news. I hope I am able to get tickets. Saw you tour in December 2010 and met you last year for your book signing in London.

How exciting!
