Peter Kay has added loads more Manchester dates to his long-awaited live arena tour, ahead of tickets going on sale this morning.

The beloved Bolton comedian is now playing a whopping nine shows at the AO Arena in his home region.

Peter, who largely stepped away from the spotlight after cancelling his 2017 tour due to personal reasons, had been triggering phenomenal demand for tickets.

The star managed to crash both the O2 Priority website and the Three+ service during pre-sales earlier this week.

The popularity of his comeback led to a monthly residency at the O2 Arena in London (the first artist to do so at the venue) and new arena dates across the country – including seven extras here in Manchester.


Here’s what you need to know about Peter Kay‘s Live Arena Tour.
