Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Center (AECC) is delighted to announce that Scotland’s own Kevin Bridges will return to the GE Oil & Gas Arena on 9th and 10th October 2015, as part of his new UK & Ireland Tour.

Scotland’s biggest comedy export, Kevin Bridges, dubbed as “brilliant” by one of his comedy idols, Billy Connolly, has had an astonishing rise to success.  He returns to the road in 2015 with a brand new show ‘A Whole Different Story…’.

His 2012 tour, ‘Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues… smashed box office records selling a staggering 45, 000 tickets on the first day.  Kevin went on to sell-out an incredible  11 shows in Scotland,   including two nights at the GE Oil & Gas Arena, before his epic 136-date tour culminated in a sell-out run throughout Australia.  The DVD of the same name made it to number 5 in the charts for Christmas that year.

The last twelve months have been incredibly busy for Kevin with him hosting three shows for BBC1 including a referendum special of his critically acclaimed documentaries ‘Kevin Bridges – What’s The Story’ and stand up shows on the Commonwealth Games and the Scottish Referendum.

October marks a momentous chapter in Kevin’s career with his hotly anticipated autobiography ‘We Need To Talk About…’ being released through Penguin Books followed by a book-signing tour of the UK.  To finish an incredible year off Kevin will be performing his first solo show in Dubai this December.

 

AECC’s Managing Director, Brian Horsburgh, said; “Having enjoyed two sold-out performances in 2012, we look forward to the return of this Scottish talent to the GE Oil & Gas Arena in 2015.  Next year sees the return of a number of big-name acts including The Script, X Factor and Michael McIntyre; and we look forward to welcoming them all back to the Venue.”

 

Tickets for the show are on general sale from Friday the 10th October at 9am from Ticketmaster on 08444 77 9000 or online at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
