How to get tickets for Peter Kay’s 2023 UK tour

The comedian returns for his first proper slate of gigs in 12 years

Peter Kay has announced his return to stand-up with a string of UK dates – find all the details on how to secure tickets below.

The comedian, who has largely been on a hiatus from public appearances after cancelling his last UK tour in December 2017 due to “unforeseen family circumstances”, announced his return on Sunday (November 6) with an advert during ITV’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

His comeback tour kicks off with two dates in Manchester from December 2, 2022 and concludes in November 2023 with a show in London.

“It’s good to be back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now,” Kay said. “And with the cost of living at an all-time high, ticket prices are starting from £35. The same price they were on my previous tour in 2010.”

You’ll be able to buy tickets here for the tour when the general sale starts from Saturday (November 12) at 10am GMT.
