‘Why am I emotional’: Peter Kay sends fans into a frenzy as he returns to the London stage for Dance For Life tour… after five years away from the limelight

Peter Kay sent his fans into a frenzy on Friday evening with another show-stopping performance at London’s Alexandra Palace.

The comedian, 48, is currently on his long-awaited Dance For life tour – in which all the proceeds go to Cancer Research.

Fans have been waiting years for Peter’s return to the stage, after he stepped away from the spotlight in 2017 due to ‘unforeseen family circumstances’.

And fans seemed to be pleased with Friday’s performance, with some even saying they were ’emotional’.

The performer said on December 13, 2017: ‘Due to unforeseen family circumstances, I deeply regret that I am having to cancel all of my upcoming work projects.

‘This unfortunately includes my upcoming standup tour, Dance for Life shows and any outstanding live work commitments.  

‘My sincerest apologies. This decision has not been taken lightly and I’m sure you’ll understand my family must always come first.’  

He had previously been due to make a comeback with the series of Dance For Life shows to raise money for Cancer Research UK in April and May 2020.

But the events had to be postponed in March last year because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
