The Tour That Doesn't Tour Tour...Now On Tour was a comedy tour announced in November 2009 by Peter Kay. Originally, Kay said he would be playing four dates at The Manchester Arena,[1] which was later extended to 20 nights in April and May 2010,[2] with a tour entitled "The Tour That Doesn't Tour Tour". The reason Kay was restricting the tour to Manchester was so he could be close to his family. During an interview with Jonathan Ross, Kay announced that due to high demand for tickets, he would now be extending his tour, renaming the tour to "The Tour That Doesn't Tour Tour...Now On Tour" to take place in November 2010 and April 2011.[needs update] The tour will visit Manchester, London,[3] Dublin,[4] Belfast,[5] Cardiff,[6] Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham, Newcastle, and Liverpool before returning to Manchester.

Singer Rick Astley will also be appearing on all April and May 2010 dates of the tour, performing various hits including his own.[7]

All shows are completely sold out with over 750,000 tickets sold.

On 4 November 2010, extra shows were announced for London, Manchester and Birmingham.

It was announced on 12 November that a sixth show will be added to the O2 in Dublin with all proceeds going to the Irish Autism Action.

Extra shows were added for Belfast, Sheffield, Nottingham, Newcastle and London on 24 November.[8]
