After mostly stepping out of the public glare for the previous five years, Peter Kay made his much-anticipated return to the stage on Good Friday.
That Peter Kay Thing premiered on Channel 4 in 2000, and it was followed by the enormously successful spin-off series Phoenix Nights.
In 2004, another spin-off, Max and Paddy’s Road to Nowhere, was released, and the following year, his popularity was enhanced once further when he covered Is This the Way to Amarillo for Children In Need. It eventually rose to the top of the charts.

In 2017, Peter Kay took a break from the spotlight, but he returned to it on Friday.
The comedian, 48, performed his inaugural Dance For Life event at Manchester Central Convention Complex, marking his first tour since wrapping the record-breaking The Tour That Doesn’t Tour Tour…Now On Tour in late 2011.
In a new video, the celebrity can be seen addressing the fans while donning an 80s-inspired attire that includes a multicolored headpiece, a record-print jacket, and gold lurex joggers.
Since canceling a massive 14-month stand-up tour in 2017, the star has not performed a concert, claiming “unforeseen family circumstances.” The proceeds from the tour will go to Cancer Research UK, and the event is dubbed “the dance-a-thon celebration that will change lives.”
