One of Bolton's most famous sons is returning to the area as his comedy tour takes him to Manchester. 

Currently traversing the UK with his 'Better Late Than Never' tour, Peter Kay will be playing the AO Arena in Manchester tonight and tomorrow, November 5 and 6, and tickets are still available. 

His first live tour since 2010, this is his second stint of the tour at the arena, having also played there last month. 

Returning to the arena he used to work at as a steward before hitting the big time, the the Phoenix Nights legend will perform in Manchester for two more shows before the end of the year, on Friday, December 1, and Saturday, December 2. 

He 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.

Doors are scheduled to open at 6.30pm and the show will start at 8pm prompt. The AO Arena asks attendees to arrive in plenty of time to pass through security and find seats. 

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

The memoir marks 50-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.
