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.

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!!

Bren on 5th of September 2018

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!
