Bolton’s favourite comedian, Peter Kay, is back in the region over the next two days as he continues his comedy tour, Better Late Than Never – and tickets are still available.

Peter will be back tonight, Thursday October 19, 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 six more shows before the end of the year.

Peter will be performing at the AO Arena on Thursday October 19, Friday October 20, Sunday, November 5, Monday, November 6, Friday December 1, and Saturday December 2.

The star will then return to Manchester in early 2024 for more shows.

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.

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

As well as returning for his tour, just last month the comedian brought out his new book, ‘T.V. Big Adventures on the Small Screen’.

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.
