Eddie Izzard Brings His Force Majeure to AECC

Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are looking forward to welcoming another great comedian to the AECC Arena in 2013.  Eddie Izzard will be performing at AECC on Friday 3rd May 2013 as part of his Force Majeure Tour.

In 2011 Eddie Izzard, the man who turned talking ‘Bollocks’ into an art form, performed and sold–out Madison Square Garden in New York.  He spent a three-month residency at the Théâtre de Dix Heures in Paris performing STRIPPED: ‘Tout en Francais’ (in French!) and then become the first stand-up comedian to play a solo show at Los Angeles’ legendary Hollywood Bowl.  It was an extraordinary year from an extraordinary man.

Never one to rest on his laurels he now plans to take on the world with a brand-new comedy tour, Force Majeure, French translation meaning “superior force”, “chance occurrence, unavoidable accident”.

Force Majeure will be the most extensive comedy tour ever and begins its mammoth journey around the globe during spring 2013.  From Cardiff to Kathmandu, Moscow to Mumbai, Eddie will visit 25 countries throughout Europe, USA, Africa, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, India, Nepal and The Far East.

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director says: “The return of Eddie Izzard to the AECC Arena brings another addition to a great comedy line-up coming to the Venue.  With Kevin Bridges and John Bishop playing five shows between them in October 2012, we are looking forward to the laughs continuing through into 2013.”

Tickets for the show are on general sale on sale on Friday 4th May 2012 at 10am priced at £35.00 plus booking fee and are available from:
Ticketmaster on 08444 77 9000 or online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk. The show is suitable for age 15+.
