Legendary Northern comic Peter Kay has announced his return to live entertainment by hosting a string of Dance for Life shows later this year.
The shows, which will tour the UK, are very popular and have sold almost 100,000 tickets since their inception back in 2016.
The 'live dance-a-thon that changes lives' raises money for Cancer Research UK, and will play two new cities this year – one being Alexandra Palace in London and, of course, two dates at Manchester Central on Good Friday and Easter Saturday.
Speaking to Bolton News, the comedian said: "I’ve honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance for Life.
"The atmosphere was so happy and positive, it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance.
“I’d also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up.”
SJM Concerts, the organisers of some of the UK's biggest live events, said: "We are so excited to be involved again with Peter’s Dance For Life shows.
"The previous nights were such an achievement and so unique, we can’t wait to bring the party to new venues."
Tickets for the shows will cost £28.50 and will come to Manchester Central on Friday 10th April and Saturday 11th April.
