Peter Kay fans who secretly tried to film comeback gig 'were thrown out'

Peter Kay fans were reportedly thrown out of the first gig on his comeback tour for secretly trying to film the show. Audience members posting on social media claimed that people were trying to record clips - despite pleas from the comedian not to do so.

Bolton-born Kay, 49, asked the crowd at Machester's AO Arena not to give away his punchlines and warned fans to put their phones away, the Mirror reports. Nevertheless, it appears some did not do as they were told.

One fan tweeted: "Filming was strictly forbidden I only snuck this pic and a couple others. People were getting thrown out near me for it!"

Another wrote: "Was at Peter Kay last night and people were telling the phone plebs to put their phones away. They are the ultimate entitled pillocks.

"They don’t care whose experience they ruin as long as the people they don’t really know on Social media know where they are."

The Manchester gig was the comedian's first show in 12 years. He sold tickets for the comeback tour for £35 each, which was the same as his last tour in 2010.

Demand was so strong that extra dates had to be added. Some classic gags made an appearance in Friday's show, along with plenty of new material.

Fans were even treated to a revamped version of his "garlic bread" line. At the end, Kay was greeted with a rapturous reception which left him visibly emotional.

Wiping the tears from his eyes, he said: "Aw you’ll have me in bits. Lovely Manchester you made me cry. I can’t believe I cried, where did it come from all that emotion?"
