Adelaide Festival's 60th Birthday Concert description

Last time he played Adelaide, five Thebarton Theatre’s worth of tickets flew out the door within days, leaving thousands of fans disappointed so…

As a gift to the city on the occasion of the Adelaide Festival’s 60th anniversary we will welcome to the Elder Park stage the legendary Tim Minchin and his band, absolutely free of charge!

Rally your mates, pack a picnic, bring the kids (you know the words, you can choose to cover their ears at judicious moments), stake your patch of Torrens-side grass and enjoy hits from the King of Kohl’s brilliantly acerbic songbook under the remaining visible stars.

Tim’s prodigious talent as a songwriter, lyricist and creator of intelligent art with mass appeal can tend to make you forget what dynamite he is live. Without a doubt this will be one of the greatest AF open-air-open-to-all-opening night gigs. We can’t wait.

Adelaide Festival shares in the outpouring of grief for those impacted by the recent bushfires. The Festival will run a fund-raising appeal at its 60th Birthday Concert featuring Tim Minchin as well as donating profits from the Compagnie Carabosse installation Fire Gardens to the Lobethal Bushfire Recovery Fund, the KI Mayoral Relief & Recovery Bushfire Fund and the RSPCA KI Wildlife Appeal.
