Noel Fielding announces UK tour dates
Comedian will share "music, comedy, animation and sketches" on lengthy run later this year
The stand-up and star of The Mighty Boosh will play 23 dates on the 'An Evening With...' tour, which will see Fielding bring "music, comedy, animation and sketches from TV characters such as The Moon and Fantasy Men" to the stage from October to December, according to a press release. Additional live dates will be announced in the coming months.
Tweeting about his new solo tour, Fielding wrote:
Very excited the tour has been announced ! Yay come along and bring a horse who thinks he's in pussy riot x— noel fielding (@noelfielding11) March 2, 2014
Earlier this year Noel Fielding and comedy partner Julian Barratt denied rumours they were working on a new film and tour together. On January 5, The Mail on Sunday wrote that the pair were working on a long-mooted Mighty Boosh feature film and quoted Fielding saying that they would be touring in 2014.
Noel Fielding quickly took to Twitter to deny the story, writing that he would "rather have my balls dipped in acid than speak to the Mail".
Although The Mighty Boosh never officially split, the pair had not previously worked together since 2009's Boosh Live: Future Sailors tour. Since their last live appearance together, the duo have pursued solo projects, with Barratt concentrating on theatre and Fielding creating Noel Fielding's Luxury Comedy for E4.
