Tickets are still available to see Bolton's Peter Kay perform at the new Co-Op Live arena in Manchester.

The Bolton comedian was announced as the first person in the world to perform at the new venue which is poised to officially open. 

The 50-year-old's Better Late Than Never tour will launch the arena on Tuesday, April 23.

And just two days away from the big show, fans of Peter can still find tickets to the show.

Ticketmaster is selling the cheapest tickets at £86.29.

It comes as there were problems with a test day that was held at the arena yesterday with bosses apologising for some people being turned away. 

The preview concert featured Rick Astley and some fans missed out as arena bosses were forced to reduce numbers at the last minute, although they have been invited back for a future performance.

Peter Kay will perform two dates next week, April 23 and 24.

A spokesperson for Co-op Live shared on its website: “He's one of the most successful stand-up comedians of all time, having delighted fans across the UK for well over two decades.

“This marks a monumental moment in the city's cultural history, with Peter Kay headlining the first performance at the UK's largest live entertainment venue.”

Tickets are also available for April 24 at the same prices.

The venue boasts a bowl design and plenty of acoustic enhancements for an overall better experience.

Co-Op Live also pledges sustainability at its core, and has teamed up with Event Cup Solutions with reusable cups used at the venue as well as refillable water stations.

The venue has also seen the installation of air source heat pumps, solar panels, and rainwater recycling, and there will also be zero waste to landfill.  

Olivia Rodrigo and The Jonas Brothers will also be performing at the Co-op Arena this year, but Peter Kay was given the first slot.

Doors open at 6.30pm and the show will start at 8pm.
