Comedian, actor and author Russell Brand is to take to the stage in Sheffield as part of his first ever stand-up world tour.

Tickets for Brand’s performance at Sheffield City Hall on October 27 - as part of his Messiah Complex tour - go on sale at 9.30am on Friday.

The comic said: “I am going to tour the world with Messiah Complex, causing bother and excitement and offering opinions that have not been either solicited or thought through.

“Of course I’ll be in English speaking countries but also Scandinavia, Russia, Israel, Lebanon, Palestine - anywhere that will have me to be honest, and that are relaxed about free speech.

“As well as in theatres I will be appearing in prisons, drug rehabilitation units, social network headquarters, universities, nationalist organisations, mosques, foreclosed houses, protest sites, synagogues and in people’s private homes.”
