Jason Manford

One of his closest friends, fellow comedian Jason Manford, told a Dublin radio station (FM104) that fan’s should keep an eye out for a huge Peter Kay tour:

“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,” said Jason, 40.

“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.”

Reports suggest that Peter Kay will announce a huge 2023 tour in September of this year - bringing an end to a near-12-year absence from the stage.
