Time Out says

PLEASE NOTE: Dates for this tour have been postponed due to the government's COVID-19 guidelines

Even if you missed his Tony-winning musical Matilda (and more fool you if you did), even if you missed his scene-stealing turn as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar, and even if you missed his Back tour when it first came to Sydney in 2019, all is not lost for Tim Minchin fans.

Tim Minchin is bringing Back back to Sydney in 2020 for an encore tour. The original 2019 iteration of Back was the first time Minchin had toured Australia in a decade, an absence that was acutely felt if the 69,000-strong attendance is anything to go by.

The irreverent Minchin describes Back as "old songs, new songs, fuck you songs". And he certainly has plenty of the latter – Minchin's version of 'I Still Call Australia Home' provided a small beacon of light during Australia's shameful marriage equality plebiscite debacle, and his 'Come Home (Cardinal Pell)' which threw pointed barbs at Cardinal George Pell (who has since been convicted of child sex offences). 

Tickets flew out the door last time Back toured so you can expect them to go just as quick this time too. Pre sales start August 26, with general sales starting midday August 28.
