Tickets for Vic and Bob’s live tour will go on general sale at 9am on Friday.

Many fans feared that the full allocation of tickets were snapped up during yesterday’s priority booking period, as the pair’s Newcastle date appeared to sell out in less than a minute.

In reality, only a small amount of tickets were released yesterday.

Furthermore, Giggle Beats understands that at least six more dates will be announced on top of the current schedule, including an extra night in Newcastle and a show in Bob Mortimer’s hometown of Middlesbrough.

“Playing in front of a living audience is where it all began for us,” Mortimer said. “Some people feel most alive when they are e.g. on fire or in Turkey, but for us the stage is where we thrive.

“I will ensure that Vic arrives at all dates smartly dressed and unarmed. I promise not to mention football, JLS or apricots during the performances.

“Should you choose to attend, be warned, I will be not be wearing a toupé.”

25 Years of Reeves and Mortimer: The Poignant Years will be a celebration of the first 25 years of their career from Vic Reeves Big Night Out through to the Smell of Reeves & Mortimer, Bang, Bang It’s Reeves & Mortimer and Shooting Stars.

Their previous live shows include Brown 1591 (1991), Puce 1694 (1994) and Weathercock 1495 (1995).

Vic Reeves said: “Destiny has led us to this point in time. Now, finally the diversion of Reeves & Mortimer can be revealed in full extent through a cornucopia of preposterous doggerel etc.”

The tour, which starts on 11 November, will celebrate the pair’s best loved characters and sketches, such as Man With the Stick, The Stotts and Mulligan and O’Hare.
