Perth Festival announces new Tim Minchin dates

We are thrilled to announce new Perth Festival dates for Tim Minchin with West Australian Symphony Orchestra in King’s Park on Saturday 20 February and Sunday 21 February.

In rescheduling Minchin’s world-premiere special performance of his brand-new album, Apart Together, we thank all ticketholders for their understanding as we worked through the issues.

Perth Festival 2021 now runs from 15 February to 14 March. Thanks to everyone for their patience as we navigated a lockdown together and rearranged the Festival for 2021.

Ticketholders across the Festival are being contacted regarding revised dates and times for their shows. This may take a few days longer than usual. Please note, there is no need to call or email the box office. We will provide further updates as soon as they become available.

The two nights under the stars in Kings Park with Minchin, Western Australia’s very own global superstar, and some of the State’s finest musicians promises to be a Festival highlight.

Minchin said: ‘When that poor young security guard tested positive, I had only been out of quarantine for a couple of days, and my first instinct was to go, bugger this, and just hop on a plane and get back to my kids. I hesitated though, because as a man who loves a bakery, I know a solid number of consecutive days of doughnuts is possible.

‘And as a friend of Iain Grandage and Perth Festival, I knew the expertise and will would be there to try and reschedule very quickly, should those doughnuts line up. And line-up they did. It’s hard to describe how complex it is to shift a concert of this size in such a short time, but they’ve done it. Hope you can all still come!’

Perth Festival welcomes its audiences under a WA Health-approved Covid safety plan. We understand that staying Covid-safe is a shared responsibility. Remember to register your attendance, wash your hands, keep your distance and stay home if unwell.
