Hey UK! In 2019 Tim’s long-awaited tour BACK sold out in record time, received rave audience reviews, critical acclaim and in Australia won the prestigious Helpmann Award for Best Australian Contemporary Concert.

This autumn Tim returns to the UK with encore performances of BACK. So, if you missed out last time or want to go back-to-BACK, this is your chance.

Again there will be Premium Charity Tickets. All of the income from those seats will go to a charity (or charities) of Tim’s choice (TBC). Last time Tim supported Barnardo’s and Samaritans.

Tickets are on general sale here: ticketmaster.co.uk/timminchinUK and from all venues.

2019 UK REVIEWS FOR BACK
“Even when you think you know what’s coming, Minchin retains a remarkable knack for staying ahead,
with verbal shimmies and tonal feints”
***** The i paper
“A triumphant comeback, a three-hour spectacular” The Guardian
“Spectacular […] A rare example of a long-awaited return that has been worth the long-await” **** The Times
“More music gig than stand-up set. Except that rock lyrics are never, ever this funny” **** Evening Standard
“Roof raising return”
**** The Sunday Telegraph


Tickets go on general sale at 10am Friday 12th March following a Ticketmaster presale from 10am Thursday 11th March here: ticketmaster.co.uk/timminchinUK

Hope you all had better luck today, I certainly did.
It is clear something was wrong with TicketMaster yesterday as today it actually used a queuing system!
Thank you to Shell the amazing web fairy for being so understanding and helpful yesterday.
Bring on October!

Shell on 10th of March 2021

Hi Bonnie – I’ve emailed you.

Bonnie marzio on 10th of March 2021

Hi
I pre ordered the cd last October and have not received a pre order sale.

Shell on 10th of March 2021

Hi John – I’ve just emailed you.

John on 10th of March 2021

Hi Shell,

Bit confused, I bought the album from the online store (was previously streaming it (a lot!) through Apple Music), but I am still waiting for a presale code. I am a bit confused about:

“If you’ve yet to buy an album and you buy it from the official store before the presale ends, with the start of the general sale, at 10am Friday 12th March you’ll be sent a presale access code.”

– When should I expect to get a presale code? It doesn’t seem like much point if it comes at/after 10am on Friday!?

Shell on 10th of March 2021

I’m sorry to see that some of you have had problems accessing tickets today for the album presale. Ticketmaster say they can help:

So if you want to keep trying today then:
Ticketmaster advise they have a helpdesk where customers can get in touch: https://help.ticketmaster.co.uk/hc/en-us/requests/new?ticket_form_id=360000188797

Or please contact @TicketmasterCS or @TicketmasterUK on Twitter if you’re on there – the social team have been briefed and they will help you.

There are other opportunities to grab some tickets detailed above and here: tomorrow from 10am there’s the Ticketmaster presale and they go on general sale from 10am on Friday: https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/timminchinUK.

Plus venues will be selling tickets on Friday too.

Now tried for two hours with two different presale codes, different devices, for different venues and dates, I’ve put my payment details in about 100 times and I still just get a page saying “We’re sorry, there are no more tickets available for this promotion”. It then lets me go through the whole process over again for the same seats.

How do we get access to the TIcketmaster presale? Think that’s my only hope now.

Jo on 10th of March 2021

What a con! I now have two copies of the album and logged in before 10 this morning. There were never any tickets available. :(

Laura on 10th of March 2021

Are the album pre-sale tickets for Cardiff already sold out? I’ve been online since before 10am but the site never once gave me the opportunity to purchase any tickets; I just had a spinning wheel on three different devices and now that’s disappeared and the album pre-sale option has moved to the bottom of the list.

Lou on 10th of March 2021

NO matter what I do, the purchase isn’t going through for the Plymouth date. I’ve now entered my card details and had the “securing tickets” page 18 times, and still it only comes up “no tickets available for this promotion”. Every time I go through the entire thing again to be offered the same seats, then it fails again.

Shell on 10th of March 2021

Louise and Jae – Check your Inboxes.

Louise P on 10th of March 2021

Hi, i bought album with online gig but haven’t received code – please help 😬

Sarah L on 10th of March 2021

Sorry, not the tour – it was bought with the live stream, obviously! Same question – how do I get my presale code?

Sarah L on 10th of March 2021

Hi
I bought an album from the official store with the last tour but haven’t had a presale code through? I have checked spam folder and nothing there? What do I need to do to get one?

Shell on 10th of March 2021

Hi Janice – You should have received a code I believe. I’ll email you shortly to try to help.

Janice on 10th of March 2021

Hello, I purchased the album from the official store but haven’t received a code for Wednesday’s pre-sale. I’m in the US but planning to go to a UK show. Are US fans not getting the code? Thanks!!

Shell on 9th of March 2021

Hi Neville – I’m told that the Premium Charity tickets are only available from Ticketmaster and not until Thursday morning onwards, so when you access either the Ticketmaster presale on Thursday from 10am or their General on sale on Friday from 10am you’ll be able to buy them. https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/timminchinUK
Thank you for supporting the charity tickets.

Ruth – The album presale access is for those who bought the physical album from the official store here: https://tim-minchin.lnk.to/StoreWE I’ll email you about this shortly too.

Louise – I’m sorry to hear that. Did you buy it from the official store as linked above in my reply to Ruth? No need to reply here – I’ll email you too.

Louise Brereton on 9th of March 2021

I bought a copy of the album when it was released but have not received a code for buying presale tickets.

Ruth on 9th of March 2021

Hi, I bought 2 copies of the album with the live stream ticket but haven’t received a code yet and have checked my spam folder but not there either?

Neville Trumper on 9th of March 2021

How can I purchase the Premium Charity tickets for UK shows?

Shell on 9th of March 2021

Hi Chris – I’m sorry you didn’t receive a code. Maybe check your -spam folder – some have ended up in there. I’ve replied by email too.

Chris on 9th of March 2021

I pre-ordered two copies of the Album on vinyl from the official store back in August but I have not received a code. :(

Shell on 9th of March 2021

Hi EST – It’s worth checking your spam folder in case it went in there, or it may just be being sent out in a batch later in the day. In the meantime I’ve replied to you by email too. Lucky friend with a turntable!

EST on 9th of March 2021

I bought the vinyl album yesterday in order to get the presale code but I haven’t heard anything since then. How do I get the presale code? I don’t even have a turntable! Was going to give it to a friend. Please help! Thanks :)

Shell on 9th of March 2021

Hi Bobbi – You can access the Ticketmaster presale on Thursday simply by using the link above or here: https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/timminchinUK

Bobbi on 9th of March 2021

How does one go about accessing the ticket master pre-sale on Thursday please?

Shell on 8th of March 2021

Hi Lucy – I’m afraid I don’t think so. Tim has just said, in an Insta vid, that there’s some scheduling difficulty this time. But I’m sure he’ll be back as soon as he can.

Hi Andy – It’s a ticket limit of 6 tickets per person and per credit card as it says on the Ticketmaster site (click the little ‘i’ at the very top of the page – bottom of the black banner for their full guidance) so that’s the limit per individual transaction… This is for the Thursday and Friday Ticketmaster sales.

The album presale is different; For that there is a 4 ticket limit per code and then it expires.

Shell x

Lucy on 8th of March 2021

Hi Shell,

Will there be any Scottish dates announced at some point?

Andy on 8th of March 2021

Does anyone know what the limit will be for tickets bought in the presale(s)?
Having a whole family of avid Tim fans (plus partners) does make life stressful… :-)
Thanks x

Andy on 8th of March 2021

From Birmingham to Newcastle via Brighton: did Robin Ince have a hand in planning this itinerary perchance? 😉

Lou on 8th of March 2021

Hi again, please ignore previous comment, all sorted but I can’t delete! Thanks for all the help Shell!

Shell on 8th of March 2021

Hi Kath, Plymouth Pavilions will appear in the Ticketmaster listings – it’s just taking its time. It is listed here on Ticketmaster’s About section as well as in this blog: https://www.ticketmaster.co.uk/tim-minchin-tickets/artist/1152153#about

Hi Lori, I’m told ‘Generally £40 and £45 with fees on top. Some venues will have £35 seats too. Charity seats £145’.

Hi Elly, The album presale access is for those who bought the physical album – Vinyl or CD – from the official store here: https://tim-minchin.lnk.to/StoreWE.

Audrey on 8th of March 2021

Waves sadly from Scotland to those parts of the UK allowed to play with the amazing Mr Minchin.

Elly on 8th of March 2021

I bought my album and watched the live show but haven’t had an email with presale code?

Sharman on 8th of March 2021

Why not Belfast?

Kath Tooley on 8th of March 2021

Plymouth shows here on 27 Nov but not on the Ticket master site. Is that date confirmed?

Lori on 8th of March 2021

Is there any indication of price anywhere?

Lauura on 8th of March 2021

Shell on 8th of March 2021

Hi Andrew – I’m told that the Charity tickets are only available from Ticketmaster and not until Thursday morning onwards.

Hi Lou – The album presale access is for those who bought the album from the official store here: https://tim-minchin.lnk.to/StoreWE

Shell x

Lou on 8th of March 2021

Do we get presale access if we bought the album as a bundle with the livestream gig tickets?

Andrew Rowley on 8th of March 2021

Will the charity tickets be available during the presale period?

Shell on 8th of March 2021

Hey,

For those asking – there are CDs available from the ‘official store’ linked above: https://tim-minchin.lnk.to/StoreWE.

Ticketmaster is just being a bit slow to populate its list, I think, but all dates above will be on there soon.

Shell x

Christopher on 8th of March 2021

So sad there is no Scotland dates on this. I attended his concert a couple years ago and it was fantastic. Such a shame Scotland missed out. Better to call it an England and Wales tour.

Hardy Weston on 8th of March 2021

Hey, I can’t seem to find the album on the website am I just being a bit dim or have they all been sold out?
If so if I order the album from amazon will I still get the presale code?
Thank you

Tracy on 8th of March 2021

Why Arent all dates on ticketmaster?

Tracy on 8th of March 2021

Why are all the dates not on ticketmaster?

Helen on 8th of March 2021

Northern Ireland is upset

Kirsty on 8th of March 2021

There are no links to purchase the CD/ditigal download via the above link. Can it be confirmed if it is still available please.

Laura on 8th of March 2021

Does the vinyl album count for getting a presale code? That seems to be the only version of the album available on the official store and while I don’t have a turntable so would prefer to buy the digital download or CD, I’d buy the vinyl format provided it gets me the presale code. Thanks.

Becky J on 8th of March 2021

HE’S PLAYING CARDIFF! It sounds like he’s about to understand suffering.
