One of the biggest comedians in Britain is going global with his new tour and set to stop off at Aberdeen’s, GE Oil & Gas Arena next summer.
Funny man Michael McIntyre will take to the stage 12th and 13th June next year on his eagerly awaited ‘Big World Tour’ which is taking him all over the globe kicking off in Iceland this month, then to locations including Australia, Singapore, America, Canada, Switzerland, Sweden, the Netherlands and then to arenas across the UK and Ireland.
The comedian best known for his iconic floppy hair previously played to Aberdeen crowds in November 2015, selling out two nights on his ‘Happy & Glorious!’ tour, bringing a new McIntyre insight into everyday life leaving his audience in fits of laughter relating his comedy to their own lives in so many ways.
In the UK, Michael has sold over 1.5 million tickets, including a record-breaking 28 performances at London’s 16,000 capacity O2 Arena where he was awarded the keys to the venue in 2015, alongside musical talents Prince, Take That and One Direction.
Senior Sales Manager at AECC, Anna Mackenzie said, “It’s great to be welcoming Michael McIntyre back to the city next year, he is one of the greats on the comedy scene and for such a huge star, he is still really interested in his audience; on his last visit on his Happy & Glorious tour, he had a hilarious conversation with one of the ladies in the audience, who spoke to him in fluent doric, which he didn’t seem phased by at all! That tour also offered his audience a McIntyre insight into the quirks of everyday life including driving skills, his relationship and his parenting style, which was clear to be very relatable to a lot of his audience, so we are excited to see what new material this tour will bring and we anticipate the tickets will be on high demand after previously selling out.”
Tickets for Michael’s Aberdeen dates go on general sale this Friday 5th May at 10am available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk/AECC or by calling 08444 77 9000.
