Peter Kay announces additional Phoenix Nights Live shows
30 Nov 2014
Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live residency at Manchester Arena has been extended with ten additional dates.
Due to the huge demand to see award-winning show, a further ten evening performances will now take place at Manchester Arena. Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live will take place on 31 January, 1 to 4 and 6 to 12 February 2015.
Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live will see the original cast reunited. This includes Take Me Out’s Paddy McGuiness, Neil Fitzmaurice and Dave Spikey. Of course, Peter Kay will also be on hand to reprise his role as Brian Potter.
Following much speculation, the news was confirmed on Thursday 27 November that a Phoenix Nights reunion would take place in aid of Comic Relief.
Phoenix Nights was created by Kay, Fitzmaurice and Spikey. It first aired in 2001 and went on to earn critical acclaim. Despite its success only two series were made. Although there have been discussions throughout the years to make a further series, it is only now that a reunion will take place.
The sitcom follows the story of Brian Potter who owns The Phoenix Club. Potter hopes to make it the greatest club and, together with his regular punters, he tries to realise this dream throughout the shows. Tickets for Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live at Manchester Arena are now on sale.
