A week after announcing an enormous 2013 road trip, Micky Flanagan has added a whole raft of additional dates, including more London and Manchester shows.
Micky Flanagan's ascent from barrow boy to comedy prince is well documented but not even the most optimistic of his fans would have foreseen such an astonishingly rapid rise. Making his Edinburgh debut in 2003, it wasn't until 2006 that he first headlined with a solo show, What Chance Change?
Anyone who watches British television will have a rough idea of his steep arc since then but it is all neatly summed up with the news that he is now one of a handful of comics who can sell out huge tours months in advance. And, just in case you don't believe that, Micky's taking his new show ('Back in the Game') all over the UK (and to Ireland) next year. Watch those tickets fly.
Micky's huge Back in the Game 2013 tour begins in Chatham on 7th February 2013 with dates in Reading, Watford, Southend, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Belfast, London and more. The 57 dates (fifty-seven!) announced last week are on sale now and selling very quickly.
As if that wasn't enough, a number of new dates have been added - some extra shows at venues which are already selling out and others in new locations. These include autumn 2013 arena dates in Newcastle, Sheffield, Cardiff, Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and London (Wembley Arena and The O2), as well as extra concert hall gigs for Ipswich, Southampton, Bristol and Brighton. These extra gigs at some of the UK's biggest venues go on sale at 9am on Friday 25th May, priced from around £25.
The whole tour is selling very quickly - you have been warned, you don't want to miss the game!
