Dates have been revealed for the previously announced new League Of Gentlemen stage tour.
The League Of Gentlemen Live Again! will tour Britain during August and September 2018, with 18 dates currently scheduled.
Promoters say: “The League Of Gentlemen will return to the stage in 2018 for their first UK tour in over 12 years with their brand new live show The League Of Gentlemen Live Again!. Beginning in Sunderland on 25 August 2018, the tour will see BAFTA Award winning comedy legends Reece Shearsmith, Steve Pemberton, Mark Gatiss and Jeremy Dyson bring their dark and unhinged fictional village of Royston Vasey to theatres and arenas across the country.”
The quartet say: “The League Of Gentlemen started as a live show over 20 years ago and in many ways performing in front of an audience gives us the biggest thrill of all. We’re overjoyed to be taking the citizens of Royston Vasey on a road-trip and can’t wait to see all the wonderful local places in our increasingly local country. Plus we’d already gone to the trouble of getting the costumes and learning the voices again for the TV show so we thought why not? Something to do isn’t it?”
Tubbs Tattsyrup added: “I’m so eccited to take my preshus things on tour agen I did a little brown fish! Do wee go to Swansea?”
Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 20th December at 9am from Ticketmaster. Prices start at £35.
