With his first live tour in 12 years, Peter Kay has announced his comeback to stand-up comedy and he will visit Wales. The much-loved comedian made the announcement through commercials. I’m a famous person. On Saturday, November 12, See Tickets and Ticketmaster will begin taking orders for tickets. Find out more about purchasing tickets here.
He said: “It’s good to get back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now. 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.”
The news of the tour was received with such fervour that the comedian’s website collapsed minutes later. Peter’s trip will start on December 2. 2018 saw Peter postpone a 100-show statewide tour that was expected to sell out.

At the time he said: “Due to unforeseen family circumstances I deeply regret I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects. My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.”
Peter made two charitable Q&A appearances in Manchester last year for Laura Nuttall, a sufferer with brain cancer.
With over 1.2 million attendees, Peter’s 2010 tour is still recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most successful comedy tour of all time.
