Peter Kay has announced Dance For Life tour dates as the mass charity dance-a-thon visits Manchester and London for the very first time in 2020, three years after the comedian pulled out of his own UK tour.
The brand new 2020 dates will raise money for Cancer Research UK, with two nights at Alexandra Palace in London, and two at Manchester Central.
The three-hour dance-a-thons will also take on a two-night residency at Liverpool’s SPACE by M&S Bank Arena.
Speaking about the events, Peter Kay said: "I’ve honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance For Life.
"The atmosphere was so happy and positive; it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance.
"I’d also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via JustGiving.com where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up."
A spokesperson for SJM Concerts said: "We are so excited to be involved again with Peter’s Dance For Life shows, the previous nights were such an achievement and so unique, we can’t wait to bring the party to new venues."
Caro Evans from Cancer Research UK said: "We are so grateful to Peter for hosting his epic Dance For Life events to help us fund vital research to beat cancer.
"We need as many people as possible to join Peter and make a difference by dancing the night away."
Tickets cost £28.50 each and are limited to over 18s.
