Top Gear fans are getting all revved up for the show’s first live tour of UK arenas which will see Jeremy Clarkson drive home to South Yorkshire, it was announced today.
Top Gear Live, also featuring the Doncaster born star’s colleagues Richard Hammond and James May, will play five cities including three performances over two days at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena.
It makes a pit stop at the venue on Friday and Saturday, June 5 and 6.
Promoters say it will bring to life the massively popular BBC 2 TV programme.
Featuring breath-taking stunts, some of the world’s most incredible cars and the usual calamitous mucking about, the Top Gear Live show has become a global phenomenon having played to almost 2 million fans in 22 countries.
Aside from a short run of sell-out shows in Glasgow earlier this year, these will be the boys’ first UK performances since 2012.
The action-packed 90-minute arena show will include exclusive, never before seen sequences as well as some firm fan favourites from their last 10 years of international touring.
Top Gear fans can also expect to see lots of fire, tyre smoke, some ridiculous stunts and a healthy dose of competitive spirit between Jeremy, Richard and James.
“Our Top Gear Live UK Arena tour is coming and I literally cannot wait. We’ll have supercars, stunts, explosions and The Stig. Come and see Top Gear, but without the editing. What could possibly go wrong?” said Clarkson.
Speaking of the tour, May said: “In the past, we’ve taken Top Gear Live all over the world, but this year we’re taking it to Newcastle, Liverpool, Belfast, Sheffield and London. That way we’ll remember how lucky we are to live in Britain.”
Hammond added “It’s all very exciting, taking our show on a tour of the UK. I suggested to the other two that we travelled around in a lovely old bus or something but they weren’t keen. I think most of their answers ended in ‘off”
In just the past 12 months Top Gear Live has toured the world with spectacular shows in Moscow, St Petersburg, Glasgow, Budapest, Zagreb, Turin, Prague, Sydney, Barbados and Durban.
