Tim Minchin 2021

No longer available

The Civic


Internationally renowned, award-winning musician, comedian, actor, writer, and composer, Tim Minchin returns to New Zealand for the encore return of BACK this June.

Playing sold-out shows across NZ in 2019, BACK is billed as “Old Songs, New Songs, F*** You Songs”, hinting at a set list of material from all corners of Minchin’s eclectic – and often iconoclastic – repertoire.

Minchin has been celebrated globally for writing the music and lyrics for Matilda the Musical -  one of the most acclaimed musicals of the last 20 years, winning a record seven Olivier Awards, thirteen Helpmann Awards, and five Tony Awards. It continues to run in the West End and has already played in over 50 cities worldwide.

Due to popular demand, a second show is now on sale! Read more about the announcement here
