Peter Kay made a special request to his fans during his show in Manchester over the weekend.
The 49-year-old comedian urged his fans to “live in the moment” and not film his show or spoiler it on social media.
“Let’s just live in the moment and don’t spoil it for others,” he said.
In November, Kay announced he would be going on an arena tour from December to August 2023 after a 12-year absence from the scene.
On his first show on Friday (December 2), the comedian also broke down in tears after receiving a standing ovation at Manchester’s AO Arena.
“How am I supposed to do comedy now? I can’t believe you made me cry,” he said during the first of 110 arena dates the Bolton star will perform over the next two and a half years.
Kay was scheduled to tour in 2017 but canceled due to “unforeseen family circumstances.” He then returned to the stage for two charity events in August 2021 to raise money for Laura Nuttall, a then 20-year-old with an aggressive type of brain tumor called glioblastoma multiforme.
When Kay’s tour went live last month, fans faced huge online queues trying to secure tickets.
Alongside the tour, Kay also announced a monthly residency at the O2 Arena in London, which will begin on December 16 and run through November 18, 2023.
Kay is the first comedian to have his own residency at the 20,000-seat Greenwich venue.
Tickets for all Kay events are currently sold out until 2025.
