The Time Machine World Tour is the third tour made by Australian singer-songwriter Darren Hayes as solo artist. The tour was undergone in support of Hayes' third studio album, This Delicate Thing We've Made. The tour was performed in two halves - the first half targeted smaller venues, such as nightclubs and minor music festivals, and included several covers, most notably, Madonna's "Dress You Up". The second half targeted major venues, and was highly theatrical, including more choreography and decorations, such as a giant bridge and origami-made bird.
