Tales from the dressing room and from the studio are promised, as well as mischief from their travels and international duty.

Alan Brazil was a UEFA Cup winner with Ipswich Town under Sir Bobby Robson, played in the World Cup for Scotland under the late Jock Stein and also played for Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Ray Parlour, also known as the ‘Romford Pele’, holds the all-time appearance record for Arsenal in the Premier League and has played with – and against – some of the biggest characters in the game.

Brazil said: “We ran our first big show in Ipswich just before the pandemic and had a great night.

“It was a sell-out and everyone had a great time.

“Now we’re back on the road and live on stage again.

“It’s a really entertaining couple of hours going through all the funny things that have happened to both of us throughout both our playing careers and on our radio show. And I’ll be telling you what really happened with Bob Monkhouse!

“It will be a cracking evening.”

Ray Parlour said: “Me and Alan are on air on the talkSPORT breakfast show every week and just have a great laugh.

“We’re taking stories we couldn’t possibly tell on our radio show, into our new live theatre show.

“I’ll be recounting tales from the dressing room in my Arsenal and England days as well as the other funny stuff that’s happened since. Don’t miss it.”

The events will be hosted by talkSPORT presenter, Shebahn Aherne.
