Tickets for comedian Lee Evan’s new ‘Warm-Up Show’ are currently the most sought after in the land keeping two star studded Shakespeare productions off of the top spot.
London, UK, August 01, 2011 -- Tickets for comedian Lee Evan’s new ‘Warm-Up Show’ are currently the most sought after in the land keeping two star studded Shakespeare productions off of the top spot.
According to theatre and gig ticket comparison site SeatChoice.com searches for tickets to his performance at the Victoria Hall, Stoke-on Trent on the 6th of August are outstripping demand for tickets to see Kevin Spacey in Richard III at the Old Vic and Much Ado About Nothing, starring David Tennant and Catherine Tate at the Wyndhams Theatre in London’s West End.
One reason why the show may be proving so popular is that the audience at Evan’s special one night performance will see him trying out brand new material ahead of his forthcoming ‘Roadrunner’ tour of the UK and Ireland.
The SeatChoice.com list also shows that live entertainment is doing very well in the regions with half of the ten most searched for tickets in the UK for gigs, shows and productions are outside of London.

SeatChoice.com founder Robert Iles said: “Lee Evans has consistently been one of Britain’s most popular comedians and if demand for his one off performance in Stoke is anything to go by he should be able to look forward to a very successful tour later this year. However what’s really interesting about this list is the popularity of theatre outside of London. Touring productions of Dirty Dancing and We Will Rock You are still doing incredible business around the country showing that regional theatre is in very good health indeed.
“On the pop music side it’s interesting to see that despite Adele’s massive recent chart success you can't keep a good 80’s revival band down with The Specials appearance at Alexandra Palace in November being the most sought after music gig right now.”
