COMEDIAN Peter Kay will return to the stage for the first time in eight years.

The star will bring his new tour to Glasgow's SSE Hydro on May 14 and 14.

His last tour in 2010, which still officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, played to over 1.2 million people.

Peter said: "I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share but I miss doing stand-up.

"As terrifying as it is, when it works there's nothing more fun and exciting.

"Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96.

"I can't wait to get back up on stage."

Peter Kay’s new stand up tour starts April 2018 in Birmingham and visits all major UK and Ireland arenas right through to 2019.

Tickets will go on sale 10am on Sunday, November 19 priced £38.50 to £60.50 (inc. admin fee) and will be available from or 0844 395 4000.
