Jack Whitehall’s massive stand-up tour will arrive in Manchester this week, for two nights at the AO Arena.

The comedian announced extra dates on his Settle Down Tour last month, which flew out rapidly thanks to his £25 limited-time ticket price.

It means that Jack Whitehall be in Manchester on two dates at the AO Arena – Wednesday 21 June and Saturday 24 June.

The 34-year-old actor, comic and writer is promising that this will be his ‘most personal’ tour to date.

In it, the Manchester University alumni will talk about growing up and ‘hurtling towards middle age’.


Jack recently announced that he is expecting his first child with Roxy Horner, his long-term partner.

Upon announcing his tour, Jack Whitehall said: “This is my most personal show yet, with plenty of material about the big changes that have happened in my life. It’s about my struggle to settle down gracefully.


“I’ve got a long-term partner, a ridiculous dog and am now hurtling towards middle aged without a clue. It’s about a foppish man-child’s cack handed attempt at adulting!”

What time will Jack Whitehall be on stage in Manchester?

According to the AO Arena, doors will open to the event at 6pm, with the event starting at 7.30pm.

As always with the venue, allow plenty of time to pass through security and find your seats.


Are there still tickets for Jack Whitehall in Manchester?

Jack Whitehall’s return to the stand-up circuit has prompted massive demand – unsurprising when you remember he’s already had three sell-out arena tours before this one,

So as you might expect, tickets are already quite hard to come by.

There are a few single seats dotted around the AO Arena on both dates with tickets starting at £25.

If you’re after a couple of tickets, you’ll be looking at the Platinum seating, priced between £76.55 and £92.35 each.
