More dates have been added across the UK after huge demand for Peter Kay’s first tour since 2010.

Tickets originally went on sale at 10am on Saturday, November 12, but high demand saw websites and apps crash.

The comedian previously announced extra dates had been added just half an hour after the original launch.

The 49-year-old, who has been largely absent from the public eye for the last four years, has now announced even more dates.

On Thursday afternoon, Kay confirmed extra dates had been added in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham.

Tickets will go on sale on Sunday, December 11, at 10am.

His last tour in 2010 set a world record for the biggest-selling stand-up comedy tour of all time.

Kay had been due to perform again in 2017, but the shows were cancelled due to “unforeseen family circumstances”.
