Peter Kay 2023 tour: Better Late Than Never live dates and when you can buy tickets and presales for Newcastle show

Peter Kay announces his first UK tour in 12 years during the first episode of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here

After twelve long years, Bolton’s funniest export Peter Kay has announced a series of arena shows, including the Utilita Arena in Newcastle, marking his return to the stand up scene. In true Peter Kay fashion also, his announcement came during an important moment in popular culture.

As TV viewers tuned in to the first episode of the new series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here, those who chose to watch the advert breaks caught a glimpse of Peter Kay with a roll of carpet underneath his arm.  Kay was then asked if he managed to buy his mum a bungalow in which he responded “yeah, she wants a new carpet now.”

The Better Late Than Never tour is set to kick off in late 2022, with Kay concentrating at this time on more northern cities for his comeback, with Nottingham and Cardiff the furthest south Kay is performing. There is currently no information or plans for additional tour dates, however public demand for the comedian may change that.
