British comedy superstar John Bishop brings brand new World Tour show to Charter Hall

On 19 October 2021 and 29 January 2022

Date issued: 16 September 2020

Colchester Amphora Trading Ltd is thrilled to announce comedy superstar John Bishop is to bring his brand-new, highly anticipated ‘Right Here, Right Now’ World Tour to Charter Hall, Colchester with two new dates on 19 October 2021 and 29 January 2022.

John Bishop’s World Tour will visit major theatres and arenas around the UK and Ireland from early September 2021 before culminating at The O2 in London in April 2022.

Tickets for the Charter Hall events are predicted to sell fast and go on sale from 10am Friday, 18 September. Visit www.colchester-events.co.uk/ to book tickets.

Councillor Theresa Higgins, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services said: “We’re delighted that John Bishop is bringing two exciting new dates to Charter Hall on his next World Tour. It’s fantastic that Colchester is now a ‘must-go’ destination for so many big-name touring comedians, musicians and theatre acts.  Visitors to Charter Hall can look forward to a host of great nights out in our town.”

John Bishop said: “I’m excited to announce these new dates for my brand-new show ‘Right Here, Right Now’, which will kick off in the Autumn next year. After the last six months we’ve all endured, it feels like a lifetime since I last performed in front of a live audience. There’s nothing like stand-up comedy to put a smile back on your face, so I can’t wait to get back out on the road to perform this new show across the UK, Ireland and around the world.”

This will be John's eighth tour and his first since 2017/2018, when he performed to over 400,000 people on his critically acclaimed 'Winging It' tour.  'Right Here, Right Now' will visit over 60 towns and cities in the UK, as well as dates in Ireland, Europe, Canada and America.

The new shows at Charter Hall are in addition to John’s already sold out ‘Work in Progress’ event which takes place at Charter Hall on 21 October 2021 (rescheduled from 3 December 2020).
