This year saw Micky Flanagan set out on his third arena tour and WHAT a tour it was. Finishing at the Brighton Centre on Sunday night, Micky's mammoth 'An' Another Fing...' tour saw him labelled "an observational comic par excellence" by Evening Standard and "worth every penny" by The Telegraph.
Micky's recent UK run was the biggest comedy tour in the world this year, selling a MEGA 600,000 tickets. Playing shows up and down the country, the 'An' Another Fing...' tour saw Micky break records throughout. In Newcastle he shattered the previous record for a seated show at Metro Radio Arena, in Cardiff he beat the record for seated attendance at Cardiff Arena, and in Sheffield he beat the record for a seated comedy event at Sheffield Arena as well selling more tickets than ANY other act at the venue.
He was also breaking records in the capital, with his twelve night run at The O2 and four night run at Wembley's SSE Arena setting a new record for London arena shows. After his first appearance at The O2 in 2011 during Channel 4's Comedy Gala, this tour saw the London funnyman take his total shows at the venue to a record equaling twenty one (TWENTY ONE!), a record held by the likes of Prince, Take That and One Direction. To recognise this MASSIVE milestone, Micky was awarded the keys to The O2 for his achievement.
And if that's not enough, Micky also took the title of best-selling comedian of 2016 on presale tickets alone! Now THAT's an impressive tour.
