Remaining tickets to see Peter Kay live at Newcastle’s Utilita Arena go on sale from 10am on Saturday.
Demand is expected to be high, with websites causing pre-sales collapsing and tickets already showing up on reseller sites at inflated prices. The tour held from 2022 to 2023 is expected to be the stand-up’s first since 2010, although it did cancel one scheduled for 2018-2019 due to unforeseen circumstances.
Ticketmaster, Seetickets and Gigs and Tours will all be selling tickets for Peter’s shows in Newcastle on Thursday March 9 and Friday March 10.
The Phoenix Nights creator has tried to keep ticket prices as low as possible given the cost of living crisis. The cheapest cost £35 – plus a booking fee imposed by ticket retailers – which is the same as the lowest category for his last tour.

Why are Peter Kay’s booking fees so expensive?
They’re annoying to customers and don’t benefit the performer, but ticket sellers say the fee is critical to their business.
About booking fees, Seetickets says, “The face value of a ticket is set by the event organizers. Most don’t pay us anything to sell their tickets, so to make money, See has to charge a little extra. The cost of the ticket is the face value plus the booking fee. We need to do this per ticket to cover the cost of providing a 24/7 booking service, the labor costs, credit card fees, and all other costs associated with running our business. The actual amount we charge is negotiated with the venue or promoter for each event.”
