Peter Kay Announces New Dance For Life Tour Will Kick Off In April
| Last updated
There isn't long left to wait until the tour begins, with the first shows being held on 10/11 April at Manchester Central.
The 46-year-old will then move on to the Echo Arena in Liverpool for the 8/9 May before heading to London's Alexandra Palace on 29/30 May. Tickets can be found here.
The comedian will DJ at a three hour Dance For Life dance-a-thon in a bid to raise money for Cancer Research UK. Tickets are limited to those over 18 and fancy dress is 'optional and encouraged'.
Tickets for the events will go on sale at 9am on 28 February.
Speaking to the Liverpool Echo about the upcoming project, he 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."
Back in December 2017, Kay cancelled his entire 2018 arena tour due to 'unforeseen family circumstances'.
A statement posted to Kay's Twitter said: "Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
"This unfortunately includes my upcoming stand-up tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments."
He went on to add: "My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I'm sure you'll understand my family must always come first.
"I've always endeavoured to protect my family's privacy from the media.
"I hope that the media and the public will continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I'm very sorry."
Kay announced the 26-date tour back in November 2017 - which would have been his first stand-up tour in eight years. It was due to kick off in March 2018, running through to April 2019, starting at Birmingham's Resorts World Arena (formerly the Genting Arena) on Sat 21 April 2018 and ending at Liverpool's Echo Arena in March 2019.
