Peter Kay adds more dates to tour after fans complain of huge queues
| Last updated
Peter Kay continues to live up to his label as the UK's most in demand man, as he added even more dates to his popular comeback tour.
On Thursday (8 December), the comedian announced more dates taking place in Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Glasgow.
He announced the new dates on Sara Cox's drivetime show on BBC Radio 2, and thanked fans who had bought tickets so far.
Those new tour tickets went on sale at 10:00am this morning (11 December), and as expected they sold out fairly quickly.
But fear not fans who were unlucky this morning, as more tickets have been added - but as usual, you'll need to join a lengthy queue.
Ticketmaster announced on social media that there would be additional dates due to high demand.
They took to Twitter to announce the news: "Wow – lots of you looking for Peter Kay tickets this morning. We’ve just announced new dates in Birmingham (5 Dec 2025), Leeds (7 March 2025), Manchester (21 March 2025) and Sheffield (2 May 2025)."
As with most ticket releases for Kay's 'Better Late Than Never' tour, many disappointed fans have complained at the size of the queues when they go to purchase tickets.
This morning, some fans complained at queues of thousands of people, with some apparently waiting an hour to then be told tickets had sold out.
Many angry fans took to social media to discuss their experience.
One angry fan wrote: "What a joke, waited 40 mins in queue to find they had sold out. There were 8800 in queue for one show at venue that holds almost double that!
"Ticket purchases should be limited to give everyone a fair chance! People buying 10 at a time to no doubt re-sale on a huge profit!"
Another fan added: "By 10.07am we got to the front of the queue and were being offered resale tickets already. The system is broken and I can only assume it’s not in the interests of the people that could fix it to do so."
And a third person said: "Got through to the front of the queue within 10 minutes this time, still sold out...can't stress enough how ridiculous the 10 per person policy is here...ripe for touts."
Kay kicked off his much-anticipated comeback tour earlier this month at Manchester's AO Arena.
The comedian choked up at his first show in twelve years, as he performed at a sold-out venue 16 miles from his hometown of Bolton.
