Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live

  • Peter Kay’s Phoenix Nights Live - Picture 1

Phoenix Nights is returning for the first time in fifteen years with a very special live show in aid of Comic Relief.

Tickets for the fifteen shows are on sale now, priced from £35.00.

The multi-award winning and critically acclaimed series followed the rise and fall of scheming club impresario Brian Potter and his band of loyal staff and regulars who will do just about anything to make his beloved Phoenix club a success despite all the odds being stacked against them.

Peter Kay said: “Comic Relief has always been close to my heart and I always try to think of something. I could think of no better way to raise money and have fun than getting everybody back together”.

Peter Kay is no stranger to the arena. His Guinness Record breaking stand-up tour saw the comedian play an astonishing forty nights at the venue, a record never beaten by any other act in the world. He also worked at the arena as a steward when it opened in 1995 as he was starting his career in comedy.

All profits in aid of Comic Relief

Red Nose Day is back on Friday 13 March. Comic Relief spends the money raised by Red Nose Day to help people living unimaginably tough lives across the UK and Africa. 

Please note that this show is only suitable for persons aged 15 or over. 


Doors: 6pm

Start: 7.45pm

Ends: 10.30pm

*Please note that times are approximate and subject to change

Plus 1

Our brand new Plus 1 bar will be open from 5pm for pre-show food and drinks before all Phoenix Nights Live shows. It's free to enter, so arrive early to beat the crowds and make the most of your night at Manchester Arena. 

Please use our City Rooms entrance by Box Office, as it's the easiest way to reach the bar. But do ask one of the stewards for directions if you need to be pointed in the right direction!

Plus 1 will also be open in the interval if you fancy heading back for another drink.

Get Social!
