Tickets go on sale this Friday, March 6, for Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer’s first tour sice 1995.
Vic and Bob will be performing at Manchester Apollo on November 17, Sheffield City Hall on December 1 and Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall on December 3.
The tour, ‘25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer: The Poignant Years’ will be a celebration of the first 25 years of their professional collaboration from Vic Reeves Big Night Out to Shooting Stars. BB2 is currently transmitting the second series of their sitcom House Of Fools.#
The tour will be a nostalgic moment in comedy history and a hotly anticipated ticket for fans hoping to catch a glimpse of some of their most popular characters, Man With the Stick, The Stotts, Mulligan and O’Hare, amongst others.
As always with Vic and Bob there will be some uplifting moments, some musical moments, maybe some magic, several dancing styles, some show of physical strength but always some poignant moments.
Vic Reeves said: “Destiny has led us to this point in time. Now, finally the diversion of Reeves & Mortimer can be revealed in full extent through a cornucopia of preposterous doggerel etc.”
Bob Mortimer added: “Playing in front of a living audience is where it all began for us. Some people feel most alive when they are e.g. on fire or in Turkey, but for us the stage is where we thrive. I will ensure that Vic arrives at all dates smartly dressed and unarmed. I promise not to mention football, JLS or apricots during the performances. Should you choose to attend, be warned, I will be not be wearing a toupé.”
