Chris Moyles kicks off life after the breakfast show with 2012 tour
The soon-to-be former self-proclaimed saviour of Radio 1, DJ Chris Moyles, will be heading out on a national tour in November - tickets are on sale Friday 14th September
Frequently labelled 'motormouth', or similar, and regarded as controversial for his occasional outbursts, Chris Moyles is all too easily overlooked as one of radio's hardest working professionals. He's steered the flagship Radio 1 Breakfast show for a record eight-and-a-half years, consistently adding listeners, or maintaining an audience while other shows lost ground. And Chris Moyles has done that with a show which, for the last four years, has broadcast for three-and-a-half hours a day.
His shtick has been arrogance and his demeanour has always been slick, bolshy and a bit in yer face. All this bluster and risk-taking masks a man of great humility, one suspects, and no little talent. His skills have extended to TV presenting which, while not always a stretch for a radio pro, is not often an arena in which mega-successful DJs prosper (just ask Moyles' hero Steve Wright).
The glint in Chris's eye will be put to good use just a week after he leaves the breakfast show, kicking off his role as King Herod for the new production of Jesus Christ Superstar - the Musical. After that, he'll be hitting the road with familiar faces (or voices) including Comedy Dave and The Guy Who Reads The News. There will be 'bad karaoke' - with a full band - gags, audience interaction, games and lots of Moyles's trademark messing about.
Chris and the team kick off the new tour at the O2 Academy in Birmingham on 14th November, followed by shows in London, Bournemouth, Sheffield and more, before the final date at the Manchester Academy on 24th November 2012. The London gig is at the Shepherds Bush Empire on 15th November.
We'll have tickets available for all dates at 9am on Friday 14th September, priced from £17.50 (£19.50 for London). Ahead of the tour and after completing his historic breakfast show stint tomorrow, Chris Moyles is not resting on his laurels. The newly svelte Yorkshireman will need all his athletic reserves as he crams in the small matter of the Jesus Christ Superstar tour, alongside Tim Minchin and Melanie C. We have tickets for most dates available now, priced generally from £40.
