RUSSELL BRAND ANNOUNCES NEWCASTLE CITY HALL DATE
Newcastle City Hall
Wednesday 13th December 2017
Celebrated stand-up comedian Russell Brand is to return to Newcastle City Hall on Wednesday 13th December 2017 when he brings his brand new live stage show to the North East.
His UK tour follows sold out preview performances of RE:BIRTH, in which Russell – considered one of comedy’s fiercest talents – tries to make sense of life having just created a new one with the birth of his daughter.
He said: "How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?"
Russell Brand last played Newcastle City Hall during his critically acclaimed and highly successful Messiah Complex tour in 2013.
Since rising to fame in 2003, Russell Brand has established himself as one of one of the world’s most celebrated stand-up comedians. His acclaimed tours include 2006’s SHAME, 2007’s ONLY JOKING, 2009’s SCANDALOUS (which marked his US live debut) and 2013’s MESSIAH COMPLEX, which was also a best-selling DVD.
Aside from stand-up, Russell is also a phenomenally successful broadcaster, actor, author, podcaster, columnist, political commentator as well as a mental health and drug rehabilitation activist.
