Ricky Gervais is returning for another UK-wide tour, called Armageddon, in 2023.
However, he continues to draw fans to shows that sell out swiftly – as has been the case with the first few nights of his new tour. He has already sold out four arena nights in Newcastle and Manchester, with plenty more dates announced.
Gervais performed a number of Armageddon warm-up shows last summer. “Another amazing audience at @lsqtheatre for my #Armageddon new material night,” he wrote on Twitter at the time.
“They laughed at things that shouldn’t be laughed at and I have reported them all for hate crimes. I’ll do more soon.”
How to get Ricky Gervais tickets
Tickets for the latest announced shows will be available first in a Live Nation pre-sale beginning Wednesday 29 March at 10am.
The general sale starts from Friday 31 March 31 at 10am local time. Ticket prices have not been released for the upcoming dates yet.

Talking about the massive show, he tweeted: “I had no money growing up. My dad was a labourer & my mum did everything to make ends meet. I went to the local comprehensive at the end of my road. Life was tough, I guess. And yet, all I can remember is having a laugh.
“Anyway, in May, I’m playing The Hollywood F****** Bowl”
