It has been 12 years since Peter Kay last performed in Nottingham. Now, the star of Phoenix Nights and Car Share has announced his new tour. The stand-up will be heading to the city in 2023 with two Nottingham gigs scheduled.
Kay appears on the publicity poster for the tour holding a cardboard sign with the words "Better Late Than Never" written on them. Standing in a suit and tie, Kay poses thumbing a lift against the backdrop of a motorway. He cancelled his 2017 tour due to, what he called at the time, "unforeseen family circumstances".
Next year, the Bolton-born comedian will hopefully catch a lift to Nottingham Motorpoint Arena for two appearances - Friday, July 14, and Saturday, July 15, 2023

Tickets are expected to sell out quickly for the comic's return. His 2010 tour officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest-selling comedy tour of all time.
Kay said: “It’s good to get back to what I love doing best, stand-up comedy, and if there’s ever a time people need a laugh it’s now. And with the cost of living at an all-time high, ticket prices are starting from £35. The same price they were on my previous tour in 2010”
