Peter Kay is BACK! Comedian confirms comeback tour which begins NEXT MONTH after stepping back from the public eye in 2017
Peter Kay has confirmed his comeback tour.
A new advert which was shown in the advert break during the I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Here! launch revealed the funnyman is returning to the stage next month.
The comedian, 49, will release tickets for his hotly-anticipated return on Saturday five years after he cancelled a tour.
He stepped back from the public eye in 2017, when he cancelled a huge 14-month stand-up tour due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’.
Peter recently delighted audiences this week as he reportedly performed a ‘secret’ comedy gig for select audiences.
Peter appeared at a theatre in Salford and had ‘new material’ for the lucky fans who were invited to attend.

Paula, who is a fan of the comedian, took to Twitter to share her experience at the exciting ‘secret’ shows.
She penned: ‘Omg just been to a secret gig with Peter Kay at The Lowry. Best night of my life ever, that guy is a legend. Phones in locked pounces, secret ticket collection, the lot. Still buzzing.’
Other Twitter users asked Paula to provide further details, but she kept things vague and responded: ‘It was the weirdest but best experience ever. He is just such a grounded fella. The gig was really raw and unpolished which was what made it so personal.’
MailOnline have contacted Peter’s representatives for comment.

Fans have been waiting years for Peter’s return to the stage, after he stepped away from the spotlight in 2017 due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’, with his Dance For Life show seeing all the proceeds go to Cancer Research.
Peter kicked off the tour two weeks ago in Manchester, for the first time since his record-breaking The Tour That Doesn’t Tour Tour…Now On Tour, which wrapped in late 2011.
And fans seemed to be pleased with his performance as many shared their reaction on social media, with some even saying they were ’emotional’.
The event is billed as a ‘dance-a-thon party that will save lives – with Peter also taking to the DJ decks during the show.
Peter was due to go on a massive tour from April 2018 through to summer 2019, but he cancelled it in December 2017 due to unknown circumstances.
The performer said on December 13, 2017: ‘Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.
‘This unfortunately includes my upcoming standup tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments.
‘My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.’
He had previously been due to make a comeback with the series of Dance For Life shows to raise money for Cancer Research UK in April and May 2020.
But the events had to be postponed in March last year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
