Peter Kay is finally returning to the stage with two new special live shows next month.

The Bolton legend has announced he will be doing two Q&As in aid of Laura Nuttall. The 20-year-old was diagnosed with a fast-growing, aggressive brain tumour called Glioblastoma multiforme back in October 2018.

The special shows will be happening at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on August 7th, at 1:30pm and 6:30pm.

Laura’s mum wrote: “Still can’t believe this is actually happening! So incredibly grateful to Peter for doing this and just cannot wait for August 7th.’”

Peter has been out of the spotlight since 2017, when he cancelled his 14-month tour out of the blue, citing ‘unforeseen family circumstances’.

BBC

A statement from the time read: “Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.

“My sincerest apologies… I’m sure you’ll understand that my family must always come first.

“I’ve always endeavoured to protect my family’s privacy from the media. I hope that the media and the public continue to respect our privacy at this time. Once again, I’m very sorry.”

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, July 30th, at 9am – you can find them here.
