And finally…
We recorded BACK at the iconic Shepherds Bush Empire. I’ve watched it, and it’s a pretty fkn tight little gig, if I do say so myself. It’s being mixed and graded and when it’s all pretty I’ll let you know when we’re gonna release it. Stay tuned!

And thank you. We are so lucky to have been able to work (on and off) through this mad old time.
*heart* *thank you* *heart*

Can’t wait for this dvd to come out. Saw you live in London and was brilliant! Love the stats up top too 😂🤪

Dear Tim, we’re still waiting for another announcement.. do you have a estimated release date? We couldn’t come to the show which was filmed because of Covid19 restrictions and too many insecurities about a trip to London. We’re unmeasurable happy and grateful that we’re able to watch the show. Not live but at least we can watch it. All the best from Germany !

Do you know when the Back live recording will be available? Will it be available on Amazon, DVD etc? My Autistic son loves you Tim but can’t cope with seeing people on live gigs because of sensory overload and too many people. I saw Back in Nottingham, it was amazing, THE best night out I’ve had in a very long time. He’s asking when he will be able to watch it, thank you in advance and thanks for all the support with Autistic charities and awareness.

Delightfully cheery recitation of normally-dry statistics. Would love to what what Dane did or did not do to get fired 37 times and re-hired 38 times ….

Oh…and the money raised and trees planted and people made so happy and people employed…and piano tuner(s) hired 🤯😱👍…absolutely brilliant. So much joy you put into the world. You are a very good human, Tim. Thank You. Again ❤️

Whatever the non religious act of praying is, that’s what I’ve been doing since BACK was first announced. Knowing I’d never be able to see it live, I DID hope, wish, pray, beg, implore, conjure, visualize etc.etc. for it to be filmed. Photos and video clips from the tours just made me crave it that much more… And Lo and Behold !!!!! Thank You, THANK YOU Tim. Your announcement that there will be a DVD lifted my battered spirits higher than anything else has since our lockdown (Canada) began on March 14, 2020. Absolutely cannot wait for it’s release. 👏🏼❤️😊 yay ❤️❤️❤️🙏🏼
