Peter Kay is to return with new dates for his Dance For Life charity discos, aiming to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

He'll be DJ'ing new nights of his charity-raising dance parties in Manchester, Liverpool and London this April and May.

This will be the comedian's first major shows since he announced in 2017 he was cancelling all live appearances, including the scheduled 2018 Dance For Life shows, citing "unforeseen family circumstances".

This morning his promoters said: "After playing 14 UK arenas since 2016 and selling over 75,000 tickets, Peter Kay's phenomenally successful Dance For Life is pleased to announce brand new dates for 2020 taking his remarkable dance-a-thon parties on the road again and raising money for Cancer Research UK's life-saving research.

"For the very first time Dance For Life will be arriving in two new cities; two nights at the prestigious Alexandra Palace in London, and an Easter spectacular at the iconic Manchester Central with shows on Good Friday and Easter Saturday.

"The three-hour dance-a-thons will also take in a two-night residency at Liverpool's SPACE by M&S Bank Arena.

"Each of the venues will be spectacularly transformed to accommodate enormous dance floors, featuring state of the art sound and lights, as DJ PK takes to the turntables for what promises to be even more joyous and unforgettable fundraising experiences."

Peter Kay says of the events: "I've honestly never had so much fun as I had working on Dance For Life. The atmosphere was so happy and positive; it really is a great way to raise money for the worthiest of causes. All people have to do is turn up and dance.

"I'd also like to encourage people to get themselves sponsored via where a special Dance For Life team page has been set up."

A spokesperson for the event organisers SJM Concerts says: "We are so excited to be involved again with Peter's Dance For Life shows, the previous nights were such an achievement and so unique, we can't wait to bring the party to new venues."

Caro Evans from Cancer Research UK says: "We are so grateful to Peter for hosting his epic Dance For Life events to help us fund vital research to beat cancer. We need as many people as possible to join Peter and make a difference by dancing the night away."
