‘I can’t believe it’: Peter Kay forced to postpone gigs for a second time

Peter Kay says he has been forced to postpone two shows at a new arena in Manchester again – this time for almost a month.

The comedian was due to perform at the Co-op Live in Manchester, which is set to become the UK’s biggest arena, on 23 and 24 April.

Behind-schedule power tests and safety concerns meant both gigs were initially pushed back to 29 and 30 April – but now, the dates have been delayed until 23 and 24 May.

Co-op Live’s general manager resigned yesterday following a series of problems and delays at the new venue.

Kay wrote: “To everybody with tickets, my apologies once again… I know I can’t believe it either.”

He added: “It’s very disappointing but your safety is important and I won’t compromise that.”

This breaking news story is being updated and more details will be published shortly.
