Peter Kay Live 18th-22nd October 2011

18th October 2011


Simon joined the final week of Peter Kay's 'The Tour That Doesn’t Tour - Tour. Now on Tour, Farewell Tour....'

Simon featured once again with Rick Astley and Peter Kay, but this time for the last ever week of the UK’s biggest ever comedy tour at Europe's largest indoor arena, the MEN (Manchester Evening News Arena).  This tour has had 122 dates at arenas with an average capacity of 15,000 per night and 28 slightly smaller shows!

The band performed the final five nights of this mammoth undertaking and were proud to be involved with the last ever show - a fundraiser for the Christie Cancer Hospital which raised over £300,000 for this worthwhile cause. Fresh from a run of gigs in Singapore, Denmark and London, the band is really cooking at the moment and as Simon says "it’s a lot of fun to be sharing a stage with such a tight star studied band”.
