Bolton's Peter Kay will be on stage at Manchester’s AO Arena this weekend – and tickets are still available

Peter  will be coming home tomorrow, Friday September 22, for a number of dates on his ongoing three-year tour, Better Late Than Never.

It is his first live tour since 2010, when he scored the Guinness World Record for the biggest selling run of all time, playing to more than 1.2 million people.

Returning to the arena that has a special place in his heart, as he used to work there as a steward before hitting the big time, the Phoenix Nights legend will be performing in Manchester for ten shows before the end of the year.

Peter will be performing at the AO Arena on Friday, September 22, Saturday September 23, Friday October 6, Saturday October 7, Thursday October 19, and Friday October 20.

He will then be back in November and December on Sunday, November 5, Monday, November 6, Friday December 1, and Saturday December 2.

Peter will return to Manchester in early 2024 for more shows.

When Peter shared the news last year that he was returning, fans shared their excitement with tickets selling out all the way up to 2025.

The first run of tickets that had the cheapest price bracket sold out within minutes of going on sale.

However, there are still more options for tickets available for all dates in Manchester on Ticketmaster as well as Viagogo and See Tickets.

The show will start at 8pm prompt with doors opening at around 6pm – these are only a guide and can be subject to change.

Not only will Peter be back in Manchester from tomorrow, his book, ‘T.V. Big Adventures on the Small Screen’, will also be out in stores across the country on Thursday, September 28.

Peter Kay said it had been a “massive pleasure” to reminisce on his journey from obsessing about TV to working in it for his latest book.

The memoir marks 49-year-old Kay’s long-awaited return to the page following the record-breaking release of his autobiography The Sound of Laughter in 2006, Saturday Night Peter in 2009 and The Book That’s More Than Just A Book in 2011.

The book is described as a nostalgic love letter to a childhood spent idolising “the wooden box in the corner of the front room” that went on to inspire a lifetime’s work, publisher Harper Collins UK said.
