After cancelling a Live Arena Tour and disappearing from the public eye for several years, Peter Kay will make a triumphant return to the stage in 2023.
According to reports, the 48-year-old comedian has developed a new stage performance that he intends to tour the country in 2015.
As he begins his new Dance For Life tour throughout the United Kingdom, the comedian returns to the spotlight for the first time since 2017.
Among Peter’s other gigs, before he rose to fame as a stand-up comic, were those at a movie theatre, a Netto supermarket, a gas station, a toilet paper factory, and a bingo hall.
It’s amazing that despite all that he’s still managed to become one of Britain’s most well-known comedians! His honours include the Banff Rockie Award, the British Screenwriters’ Award, the Golden Rose Award, and the British Television Award.
Besides being an actor, he’s also a writer, director, and producer.
What happened to Peter Kay?
For the past five years, Peter Kay has kept a quiet profile.
To avoid “unforeseen family difficulties,” he postponed his April 2018-June 2019 Live Arena Tour in December 2017.
There has been no additional confirmation of the circumstances.
He also cancelled his Dance For Life performances as well as his Live Arena Tour.
In response to the controversy, he offered an apology to individuals who had purchased tickets.
The statement read: ‘I am profoundly sorry that I must cancel all of my forthcoming job initiatives due to unexpected family circumstances.’
My future stand-up tour, Dance for Life events and any remaining live work commitments are all included in this.
Apologies go out to you.’ My family has always come first, and I hope you can appreciate that I haven’t made this decision lightly.
When it comes to protecting my family’s privacy from the media, I’ve always done my best to keep it that way. At this point, I hope that the media and the general public will continue to respect our privacy. “Once again, I’d want to apologise for any inconvenience.”
Since the discontinuation of the shows, Kay, who has made no secret of the importance of his family and his desire to live a quiet life away from the spotlight, has been absent from the public eye on several occasions.
When was Peter Kay last seen?
A charity screening of Kay’s comedy Car Share was announced in March 2018. In April of that year, he appeared on stage at the Blackpool screening to present the episode.
To increase awareness of the mitochondrial illness, The Lily Foundation organised a screening of the film.
Mitochondrial illness encompasses a wide spectrum of disorders caused by the malfunction of the mitochondria, the powerhouses of the cell.
The mitochondria play a critical role in supplying energy to cells, and when they are unable to do so, the body suffers.
An untreatable and debilitating disease that can damage the brain and other organs is now untreatable.
The NHS website has further information about the condition.
This is an outstanding organisation that aims to enhance the lives of children with mitochondrial disease,” Kay said in a blog post at that time.
As a result of my personal experience with the Foundation’s work, I am happy to raise both awareness and funding to support the outstanding work they do for children and their families.”
More than £34,000 was donated to the organisation as a result of the showing.
It wasn’t long after that, in April 2019, that he featured on BBC’s Big Night In to re-create the Tony Christie video for (Is This the Way To) Amarillo in Blackpool.
When Laura Nuttall, 21, was diagnosed with a fast-growing and dangerous brain tumour called Glioblastoma multiforme last year, he participated in two Q&As at Manchester’s O2 Apollo to raise money for her treatment.
