Jason Manford hints that pal Peter Kay may return to the stage for stand-up gigs on tour


‘Keep your eye out for his tour!’ Jason Manford drops biggest hint yet that friend Peter Kay may return to the stage for stand-up gigs

He stepped back from the public eye in 2017, when he cancelled a huge 14-month stand-up tour due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’.

But now Peter Kay’s pal Jason Manford has said that he could be back with a new tour coming soon. 

The comedians have been good friends for over two decades, after meeting at comedy venue The Buzz Club in Chorlton, Greater Manchester.

Jason, 40, has now hinted that the comic, 48, could be returning to the stage, telling fans to ‘keep your eye out’.

Speaking on Dublin radio station FM104’s Strawberry Alarm Clock show, Jason said: ‘He’s great, Pete. We’ve known each other a long time, it must be 25 years. It’s been a hell of a ride.

‘He’s just an absolute legend isn’t he? What a treasure. Hopefully back himself soon, doing stand-up, so keep your eye out for his tour. Not that he needs you to buy a ticket as much as I do.’

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 Friday’s 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.
