COMEDY genius Peter Kay's national tour has sold out Arenas nationwide in record time - but extra tickets have gone on sale to see him in Sheffield this week!
The superstar will host singer-songwriter pal Eliot Kennedy's star-studded charity concert at Sheffield City Hall on Wednesday, December 16, 2009.
Today promoter Dennis Hobson said a few extra tickets have been put on sale.
But they are expected to sell out fast.
The show will also feature star guests joining Eliot to sing the songs he's written for them - including members of pop chart-toppers SClub, Simon Webb from Blue, Fame Academy's Alistair Griffin, Kavana, Kenny Thomas, Scott and Abz from Five, and Lord Webber's How To Solve A Problem Like Maria finalist, Siobhan Dillon.
Siobhan, who has recorded her debut album at Eliot's city centre Steelworks Studios, will perform debut single, Amazing – which doubles as the anthem of his new One Song Foundation, which will be officially launched on the night.
Weston Park Hospital Cancer Charity and Cavendish Cancer Care will benefit from the concert again, as they did last year.
Also playing, with an average age of just 14, will be Ecclesfield School band Searching 4 Evidence - winners of the recent Dennis Hobson promoted and Star backed Eliot Kennedy Limelight competition, to find a new local talent.
Another highlight will feature local sports stars on stage with Eliot to sing World At Our Feet, his Sheffield 2018 Back The Bid song, backing the campaign for World Cup matches in Sheffield. And the city will know on December 16 whether it's bid has been successful.
"Peter Kay is an amazing talent and you can't get a ticket to see his tour next year - he's been selling out Arenas in record time. But fans can see him in Sheffield next week,'' said Dennis.
"We are delighted that he's agreed to host this year's show. He turned up last year as Geraldine. But this year he's coming as himself and he wants to take a big part in the show.
"We've put a few extra tickets on sale but when they are gone - that's it. So I'd suggest anyone wanting a ticket gets them now."
Tickets for Eliot Kennedy and Star Guests at the City Hall are 24.50 and 29.50 each, may be subject to a booking fee. Call 0114 2789 789 or book on line, and get updated details, at www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
