Peter Kay: Dance for life | Motorpoint arena, Nottingham

I have finally seen Peter Kay live! Unfortunately, it wasn’t his comedy tour, BUT this was just as good… even better in fact, though hopefully one day I will see him live, doing standup.

 My lovely sister and her husband joined me to the Nottingham showing on Friday, May 12. We really weren’t sure to what we were expecting - I guess that is good though. Most people my age would be eager to see BeyoncĂ©, but for me? Give me Peter Kay any day! I have been such a fan for as long as I can remember. Again, I wasn’t your typical ‘Disney girl’ when I was younger… though I probably should’ve been! I’d first know about Peter Kay when ‘Phoenix Nights’ came out… making me 8 years old – don’t ask!! I loved it so much.

From Max and Paddy to his latest show - CarShare, Peter has to be my favourite comedian! When he announced he would be doing a tour called ‘Dance for Life’, I was dying to get tickets. Thankfully my sister got them!! It seemed so long ago but it sure did come quick enough.

Peter came on stage and I was so happy – I LOVE a good Bolton accent, definitely my fav! He announced there was a special guest… Sian Gibson – the co-star of Car Share. I was so glad she was there too; she is hilarious! At first, it was a little awkward – I felt silly dancing in a room full of people. Saying that pretty much everyone was in fancy dress. Once the good music started, I couldn’t stop dancing!

It was AMAZING! From upbeat 80s music to the cheesy 90s songs, the night was perfect!! There were classic Peter Kay moments from playing Sister Sledge and putting the words ‘Just let me staple the Vicar’ up on the screen. Any song that had the lyrics ‘Na-na-na’, and having a picture of a stereotypical ‘Nana’ on the screen – it truly felt like his humour was there. Halfway through the show, we managed to get quite close to the stage. A guy with a large camera was around and my face was on the large screen for everyone to see! I LOVED it! I honestly felt like the episode of Friends in ‘The one with the routine’… no embarrassing dance routine was performed though.

A three-hour countdown was shown throughout the night,  I was exhausted by the end! There was so much confetti and also fabulous dancing by the Zumba Gold ladies. Sadly, it was home time...with a cheeky trip to McDonald's to end the perfect evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the night - even if my feet were killing like a bitch! The tour was all for charity and for an amazing cause for Stand Up To Cancer. The link below shows how much was raised.

 My look: 
 I wanted to have a certain look going to ‘Dance for Life’ and gave myself a perm – using the Chopstick curlers by Lee Stafford (the BEST curlers ever!).
 My jumper was from New Look, £5 (Bargain!) and ripped high waisted jeans from Miss Selfridge.

 I hope you enjoyed the review!!
