Bill Bailey is to travel the UK in 2018 with a new tour titled Larks In Transit.
The show is described as "a compendium of travellers' tales and the general shenanigans of twenty years as a travelling comedian".
Tour organisers say: "With musical virtuosity, surreal tangents and trademark intelligence, Bill Bailey tackles politics, philosophy and the pursuit of happiness. Plus, he fashions a symphony from a ringtone, tells the real story of Old McDonald and re-imagines the Stars and Stripes."
Fifty-one dates have been announced today for Larks In Transit, with the tour kicking off at the end of January 2018 in Coventry and ending in June at the Peterborough Arena. Bailey will launch the show in Australia and New Zealand later in 2017 before its arrival in Britain.
The new show follows on from Limboland, arguably Bailey's most successful tour ever. Having performed to in excess of 230,000 fans across 170 sell-out dates in the UK alone, including a six week run in London's West End, critics were unanimous in their praise for Limboland with The Times and Telegraph amongst those awarding it five stars.
Tickets for Larks In Transit go on sale on Friday 12th May, with a pre-sale via Ticketsmaster on Wesdnesday 10th May. A full list of tour dates are below.
Before he embarks on his new tour, Bailey will be walking The Ridgeway Walk in support of Stand Up To Cancer, a charity very close to his heart. Joined by a number of his closest pals, the comedian will be trekking the 100-mile route from Bedfordshire to Wiltshire over six days at the end of June 2017 in memory of his mother, who died of bowel cancer in 2005.
